Crying Time

These days, it does not take much for me to get teary-eyed or even to weep.

I weep when I read about someone’s good deed.

Or, I hear a song that brings back a memory, either sad or happy.

A first this bothered me.

Why the tears?

Am I depressed?

Not eating right? Not getting enough exercise? Medical issue?

I don’t think so.

I eat healthy foods, do yoga, walk 3+ miles per day, and lift weights twice a week.

In between, I have rambunctious, fun play sessions with Riley, my exuberant dog.

We dance to music videos on You Tube.

I dance “like no one is looking” because no one is except for Riley who loves it.

Such a big doggy grin on her face!

A+ Adult

I function quite well, even holding down a full-time job.

My adult sons and I get along and communicate often.

I have friends and a social life.

I am well-groomed and appropriately dressed.

Clean bill of health from my doctor.

I think I check off most, if not all, of the boxes for a healthy person.

So, I cry sometimes.

So be it.

  1. I find myself getting sucker punched by movies these days. Just watching along, minding my own business and suddenly crying.
    Top Gun: Maverick? Really?!?
    So, I feel ya. And, I agree…nothing wrong with me, and it actually feels good.

    1. I cried buckets watching the original Top Gun but have not seen the sequel. I have watched Goodnight Oppy twice and cried both times. The kicker here is that Oppy is a robot sent to Mars by NASA. So, I think we are in the same boat…I hope the holidays are bringing you joy. Stay safe and warm, Lori

  2. It is a simple thing…but very profound. Your releasing that wall we all build through our fears in life. All that ‘building’ to protect us, not realizing we are in fact holding those fears in, not resolving them. But this has a great purpose. As we go through those many painful things in life we experience so much that it builds something else, that empathy, compassion and love, and in doing so understand us so much more and break that wall down. So many things now realized that no longer matter, understanding that there is a greater love waiting within us so we let it all go…and feel, really feel as we allow ourselves to just be us…sing, dance and yes, cry often…simply because there is no more wall, no more blocking and just being us…a greater love we cannot give. Enjoy being you Lori, dance till you laugh and cry those happy tears 😀❤️🙏🏽

      1. My pleasure Lori, and I am indeed enjoying this wonderful day. Shortly to be encompassed with a nice coffee and a choc chip biscuit that has no preservatives in it (and actually tastes good), while overlooking the lake. What more could I ask. Merry Christmas dear lady, may it hold your favorites too 🤣😂😀❤️🙏🏽🦋🎅🏽🦌🕊🎄🎁⛄️
