How are you doing tonight? I am feeling “up”, which is good. A few days ago, I was feeling a bit down. It happens to all of us. There are times when I am just dragging. On those days, I just want the burdens weighing on me lift or fly away. There really is no rhyme nor reason to the feeling. It isn’t that suddenly there is a whole lot weighing me down. Perhaps I just get careworn. Jesus had times like that, too. He would leave the apostles and go to a quiet place and regroup. He would go and commune with the Father. I have excuses regarding why I cannot take that time. You
know how that is. I have multiple things I need to get done. But if I do not take the time to regroup, it does not go well at all. That is when I reach the end of the day and I have no sparkle.
So I took a few days to regroup AND get some things done. As a result, going into this next week, things feel positive. Oh how I love that feeling.
My family and I sat down to watch the movie “Inside Out” today. My husband hadn’t seen it before and we snagged the DVD from the library. As we watched the movie, it struck me how strongly I could relate to the character/emotion Joy. Oh my, how she works at seeing the joy in everything. I do that too. She discovers some interesting yet simple truths during the movie. She discovers that Sadness played a vital role. It was a significant revelation. If you have seen the movie, is there a character/emotion you could relate to?
