It's all below the surface.
Sadness, I think. Mostly.
Although it's murky below the surface...so I'm not always sure what's under there.
It was hard to say good-bye to my dad last week. And it's impossible to watch the news. I've got a "who I've let down" list and a "what I'm not accomplishing list" running through my mind. On repeat. Throw in a few hormones, some fatigue and a dash of humid, summer heat....and let me tell you....I've been pretty tough to take.
Do you have those days? Those weeks? When the smallest hint of sentimentality in someone's blog post...or a corny television moment brings tears to your eyes? Tears that surprise you? And are definitely over-the-top-out-of-proportion to the emotion called for in the moment....well, I've had a few of those moments. Murky moments...when things come bubbling out from under.
But I'm coming up for air.
Breathing deeply and seeking to enjoy the calm, clear waters from above the surface.
