Every Now And Then


Every now and then it gets to me

I am doing everything I should

Working hard, keeping busy

Seeing friends, being active

But every now and then come tears

I am going to let them roll at times

I am going to take breaks when I need to

Sometimes I am going to need to rest

Just every now and then when it is getting to me

    1. Thanks Nova ❤
      I have been ok this week since starting back at work. The thing that is odd is that none of my workmates or clients know what has happened. So much putting a brave face on is tiring at times. Every now and then I have to go and make a cuppa or disappear for a breather just to let myself have a few teary moments. I am quite good at holding it in until I can be back in the little nest and have a bigger cry.


    1. Thank you Sadje. I am ticking over. I wrote most of these ditties last week when it was all very intense. I do find being busy helps – people are so wonderful in general. But every now and then I remember what has happened and it does choke me up. I guess it will for some time to come.

    1. It’s like the poetry prompt Lillian provided – there is a time to weep and mourn. I don’t feel bad at all about needing to have a good cry at times. It brings a great relief.


  1. It’s a completely different situation & I am in no way trying to compare my situation to yours, however; I would like to share a piece of advice with you that was given to me during my time of heaviest grief.

    You must feel everything as it comes. Allow yourself to cry, scream, go running, listen to music, veg out in front of the TV watching reruns of your favorite show & eating junk food. Don’t beat yourself up, & do what’s best for you. Try not to go numb. The only way you can truly heal is to feel whatever comes whenever it comes. Those that truly love you will understand, so don’t feel bad about cancelling plans when you don’t feel like being around others. It is okay to not be okay.

    I hope this helps or brings you some sort of comfort. *Hugs*

      I really appreciate your lovely comment.
      I am letting myself have a few treats that I would not normally. The weather here in England is atrocious at the moment. When it improves I can't wait to get out in the countryside walking more. One of my family bought me some Scarpa walking boots and I can't wait to get them muddy!

      Goldfinch is being wonderful also. I love him so much. Even 10,100 miles away he is a great support.
