I was sad this morning. Very sad. I was in the middle of it, and it seemed endless.
My best friend said, “Remembering that this too shall pass doesn’t make the pain any less.” In that second, I realized I’d forgotten that this would pass. Sitting in the middle of it, it felt permanent. That reminder helped ease my sadness slightly.
Then I hung out the laundry, and that action helped me feel much better, so I went for a speed walk and got some exercise. I feel much better now.
I am really grateful for the reminder that feelings aren’t permanent.
