The Gift of a Tear

Moments ago, I felt a tear run down my face.

It was not a surprise to feel that tear.  It was not the first.  But when I felt it, as it followed its downward path, I appreciated it.

It was the absolute honesty of that tear that struck me.  It gently flowed from within.  It gently flowed because of the way I felt.  I was in tune with my feelings.  I am grateful for that.

Sometimes I want to cry.  I want to let out the things that are bothering me.  The tears won't come.

This evening, tears flowed freely.   It doesn't mean anything is terribly wrong.  It means I was letting myself feel some sadness.  That's ok.

I think it is helpful to let ourselves feel all of our feelings.  And to never be afraid to feel an honest tear.
