Things have been good – really, really good. Yet moments come, and thankfully go, when I am overwhelmed with emotion. The difference is like night and day.
Last night was one of those nights where the smile on my face turned upside down almost as soon as the words “good night” were said. Indeed, I did not want to say good night. I wanted the good to continue all through the night.
As my head was infused with sadness, I wanted more than anything for someone to wrap their arms around me and just let me cry – no explanations needed. But I did not reach out. Instead, I curled up in the darkness with my iTunes and mug of hot water. And I cried my heart out until there was nothing left to do but go back to bed.
By the time the sun came up, I was seeing things in a whole new light. Once again, I see what a very different place I am in from before. I have grown and changed – and it’s all been good. I have so much to be thankful for and really no reason to wallow in sadness. Still, it comes. Thankfully, it goes too.
