Why are some days more emotional than others? One day you’re crying because you saw a little girl giggling and smiling as she ate an ice cream cone and another you couldn’t budge a tear even if you witnessed a military officer return home to surprise loved one’s. Why are we more sensitive at certain times and cold as stone others?
I just watched a video on Facebook about a nonprofit that finds foster parents for pets of deployed military members. And being that today is a more emotional day for me, I teared up immediately and pressed play. When the pet owner was returned to their dog after a year, the emotional reunion had me bawling like a baby! So why does this happen? We get caught off guard with our feelings. Just scrolling through Facebook, pressing play on a random video, next thing you know there’s not enough Kleenex in the world to dry the sea.
Know that where ever you are in the moment that invokes tears, it is the perfect recipe. Your heart is ready to cry, so don’t hold back and let it out. Release what’s ready to leave you. Our perfectly Divine and serendipitous Universe gave me exactly what was needed to open the floodgates. It wasn’t about the video, or the over zealous dog that could’t get enough licks on her owner’s face. It was about me being aware of my emotional state at the very moment tears came. And it was my choice to be present in the moment of opportunity or depart the emotions and stuff them back down. I chose to release which led me to share my experience with all of you.
