Today has been a day of mixed emotions. I feel better now, but earlier it was a rough go.
I woke up feeling stressed and upset – really the only thing that does that to me these days is about money. And money has been on my mind lately – the lack of money. I’ve been down this road before – stressed about money. It’s a recurring theme in my life, and I know that I always make it through the stressful times. And I know I will make it through this one too. But that doesn’t mean I’m not allowed to be sad and even a bit depressed.
I was walking back from getting my glasses fixed and the overwhelming feeling of stress and sadness overcame me. I know I’m going to be meeting people again once I’m back to work – hopefully this week. But the sadness overcame me because I really don’t have anyone at the moment to talk to face to face. My kids are here for me but it’s not the same thing. So yes, as I walked, I cried a bit. It felt good to let it out, and then the sun came out and it seemed like it was all I needed – a sunny walk home after having a bit of a cry. I came home to a very smiley happy grandson and that cheered me up too.
So it’s okay if you feel the need to cry when you feel overwhelmed – but remember that there is almost always a good thing about your day, even if it is just waking up and having a coffee.
Have a great day! And let the sun shine into your life.
