Emotions are tricky, aren't they?

We go through days.


Feel as though we're flying high.

On top of the world.

We rely on others.

Feed off of them.

Our emotions often echo those of the people around us.

Especially when we're empaths.

Yes - that really is a thing.

We have these gut feelings.

We follow them.




But we sometimes shove it aside.

Consider ourselves irrational.


Because emotions, they are so so tricky.

They can change in an instant.

A heartbeat.

A few words.

Mere minutes.

(I can tell you just how quickly if you actually want to know.)

And you find yourself falling.

Even when you knew.

You knew it wasn't permanent.

You knew things were changing.

You knew that it wouldn't be a forever sort of thing.

But damn it, if those emotions didn't get in the way.

And let you anticipate.



Freaking hope.

And dream.

And then.



On overflow.

Ridiculously so.

Even as you talk yourself through and remind yourself.




Deep breaths, y'all.

Today is an emotional day for many of us.

Social media is overpowering.

People reminding us to vote. Telling us it's horrible if we don't/didn't.

Then telling us it's totally okay, we can do whatever we need to do.

It's a privilege.

A right.

And yet.

Painful for so many.


They flare up, friends.

And it's okay.

Because even when we know.


That they are going to?

They can still knock us on our ass.


Hang in there.

And if you need a place to share your emotions freely? Reach out to me. I'm here.

I'll hold you. Laugh with you. Cry with you. Listen to you.

I'll listen as you pray, or I'll pray with you.

I'll wish for all the things you wish for.

I'll hold your hand.

I'll share my emotions as you share your own.

Those tricky little f*ckers.

Each and every one of them.


  1. I am eagerly anticipating the results of our local elections tonight. I hope I'm not extremely disappointed. I've seen so, so many people spreading the word about the issues and the candidates and I really hope we start to see some change. I'm lucky enough to live in a pretty blue city for such a red state, but I've always heard you've got to start local before you can make a difference statewide, federally, etc. So I hope all our locals helped put those wheels in motion, and hopefully that pays off in two years.

    This whole political landscape since 2016 has been so draining on everyone. I've seen friendships and even some family ties ripped apart. It's sad. I'm one of those "I'll still love you no matter who you vote for" types, but not if someone uses the situation to make fun of others or calling them names for not voting/feeling the same way. Respect is a two way street, and so many people have lost mine. Yours too, I'm sure.

    And those emotions? Damn. Are they ever present.


  2. I'm seeing this the day after. In our state things played out without a lot of surprises or major upsets.

    But, what you said about emotions is good for any day of the week. And, some of us are more sensitive, more emotional, outwardly/inwardly than others. I'm one of those people.

    I feel, and I can't turn it off. Sometimes it's good, sometimes it would be best if others didn't know. But, it's a part of me and what makes me: me.
