Even the sun cries sometimes
Amidst the lightness of life that was the summer holidays, there have been some pretty heavy days.
Tears, anxious feelings, worry.
Willing myself to push through. To stay.
Sometimes it feels like the darkness is trying to take over. Some days the clouds seem too heavy to lift.
There are even the moments that are just plain terrifying, when those clouds feel comfortable and I want to sink into them. I can see myself falling - wanting to fall - because it seems easier than finding a way not to.
But they're just days. Just moments within days, even.
It rained the other day, for the first time in weeks. "The rain is the sun's tears," Abbey decided. I like that.
Even the sun - the brightest, strongest force you could imagine - has bad days. It's okay for me to experience the same.
The strength to shine will always be there. Right behind that cloud, which, after all, is only made of water.
