so today seems to maybe be one of those sad days.
or at least sad mornings....

i woke up with it, walked with it.

and think i'll prolly sit with it a bit....

i figure it's a balance.

ya know?

i mean, really, who can handle too much joy???

okay...maybe i could.
i'd like to try anyway.....

but sadness is part of that joy somehow,
and i know that.

so today will be what it is.

that in itself feels kinda good.

Thank you for acknowledging my unexplained blues the other evening. And thank you for reminding me about the joy that preceded it! Hugs, Joni

I have never figured out how you can just wake up feeling sad or blue. I can only attribute it to the dream process - something we've been working on in our sleep has touched our sad buttons.

I do agree that the joy and sorrow are two sides of the same coin. To feel one to its limits you must feel the other.

Sending you a crayon of your color choice to help color over the blue, but not til the time is right!

I remember reading that "your Joy is your sorrow unmasked" and Standing straight up and having an AHA! moment.
Now I keep visualizing sorrow as an onion, just waiting to be peeled.
and my watery eyes are getting me to the reward!

I felt that too... It's hard to learn how to just sit with it... Almost as hard as it is to learn to be in the joy... Lovely...
