Giving ourselves permission for our feelings…

This poem makes me think about giving myself permission to feel what I feel instead of the expectation to always have a good day or always have a smile. The only thing I always have to do… is love. That includes loving myself.

Earlier today, I noticed I was kind of down.
I didn’t have the normal bright outlook,
Seemed like the world was moving in slow motion.

I hate days like this.
It’s not my normal.

It is not the weather because it’s in the 70’s and sunny.
There are no speed bumps in my life to speak of,
No water leaks in the pipes, the car is running fine.

I hate days like this.
It’s not my normal.

I got to thinking about all of those who do not have it so good.
I have a warm place to sleep,
Food to eat, a really good job with healthcare.

I hate days like this.
It’s not my normal.

If you know me, you know I have quite the relationship with my Creator.
There is something for me in this, there is a message…
I know this to be true and yet I am still perplexed and down.

I hate days like this.
It is not my normal.

There are those who feel like this every day,
It’s not fair, for sure.
I am grateful for it not being me, but…

I hate days like this.
It’s not my normal.
