After the tears.
Originally uploaded by completelyknown.
This picture was taken on a Sunday evening late in September. The week was a bit trying. (But I guess each week has its share of trials.) I had things on my mind about people and situations, stuff I was working on in my own life, things I was reminded about having received, and gifts that I was able to give. It all lead to a flood of emotion and tears. I got out of the place I was in and into my car and the tears flowed but only for a short while. (I do wish I could cry better sometimes, and just "let it all out" that way.) With my camera at my side I realized this was something I had not yet recorded. I had not recorded this part of me that rarely surfaces. I do have feelings and emotions. The things that I experience include happiness, thoughtfulness, anger, sadness, and more. I've been wanting to post this picture for multiple reasons. Maybe cause I just wanted to be more completely known by you. Maybe cause I wanted you to know you are not alone. Maybe cause it was important for me to remember the pain that I might more greatly appreciate the joys in my life.
I am doing better now. But then again I wasn't really doing that bad that night. I was just flooded with emotions and cried. I was happy and I was sad and it came out in tears. I am thankful for this.
