I am in a really sad place today. I feel very emotional and overwhelmed. I am realizing it may have something to do with the fact that I started weight watchers again and struggle to focus on that along with all the rest of my life. This leads to the feelings of being overwhelmed along with thinking about going back to school. I have no place holding a pity party, I feel lucky to have the opportunity to go back to school. This day made me HOPE that in the future if I lose all of my reasoning there is a loving and compassionate person there to take care of me and keep me safe. I am grateful that I have a job, a house, three great kids and a loving husband. So, then why am I feeling so blue? I think it is an emotion and that is all. I am sad and may need to cry a little but will be okay. I know that this feeling is on the move and I will soon be feeling some other emotion and thinking about something else. Until then I HOPE I can accept this emotion for what it is and just feel my way through it. I read something recently that said, “when you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot in it and hang on.”-unknown.
