Now, I'm letting it happen. Not excusing it away.
Nothing is wrong. Not by conventional standards. No death, sickness, or major disappointment. Nothing to warrant the unstoppable tears. But they have come from confirmation and from affirmation and from inspiration that it is simply just OK to do it now.
Something broke through the sarcasm and the quick retorts and the "shrug it off" attitude today. And today, it's just the time for it.
So I'm letting it happen, not rushing to be done or pull myself together, or making myself feel silly for it.
Nope, today it is OK. And I feel thankful for it.
Thanks to Not the Hero who had courage to post and the foresight to link to Haven, who did us a favor and posted this link. It's not normally how I would get from point A to point B, but it was the right path today. Sometimes you just don't know where you need to get to until someone else helps take you there.
