Behind The Masks
Today is the day, I will sit down and write my blog. I kept repeating that sentence almost everyday for weeks. Honestly, I can’t even begin to describe how I am feeling and what I am thinking. I wasn’t even sure how I was going to write a clear sentence or have a complete thought It wasn’t until after my trip to the grocery store that I had a better understanding of what was going on in my brain and body.
As I walked up and down the grocery store aisle, I would look at people and not be able to see their faces. I couldn’t tell if they were smiling, frowning or even sticking their tongues out at me! What was in my view were the eyes. The eyes of each person spoke to me as if they were telling me a story.
They told the tale of sadness , depression, anxiety, fear and uncertainty. They also told the story of love, strength, resilience, peace and joy.
After I finished my shopping I realized that we are all feeling the same emotions at different time and that’s okay. It’s okay to just be! I invite you to be kinder to yourself, a little softer and just breath. Namaste
