Before I start this blog post. Many of us have woken up today to yet another tragedy unfolding. My thoughts and prayers go with the people who are right now in the midst of the London tower fire.
Sometimes you just need to laugh.
Someone said to me yesterday how amazed they were that despite how low I have been, I can still laugh and put on the face of well, Liz.
Actually I guess one thing I learnt from being the child of a psychologist was about how to take some of my emotions and go with them. I guess if you think about it, biting back and doing the stuff upper lip thing never helped anyone.
My dad used to say that there was nothing more human and healthy than letting your tears roll. That by doing that you release bad energies and make way for positive ones.
You know, I think he was right.
Since I was a child I cry just about every week. Be it a sob or a slight teardrop down my face. I don’t hide my emotions at all.
And no I don’t mean cry because I’m miserable. I mean cry with joy, cry with sorrow, cry watching a soppy film . That kind of thing.
What I have noticed is during the periods where I didn’t express my emotions because “it’s not done”, I actually found that I feel more pressured and actually more miserable. In actual fact when I visited the counsellor, I cried during the whole discussion. Because I was releasing bad energy, letting it go.
When I woke up yesterday, despite the slight puffy eyelids, I had a great day. (Work Miseries aside).
So there really is something to be said for shedding a tear or two now and then.
Today, I’m tired.
You would be too if you had a 8.2kg rag doll cat jump on you at 3am, 4am and 5am meowing to play!!
Now to the outfit. I need to go on a summer holiday in this….,
