Sometimes tears come out of nowhere. I’m happy as can be, I will see something or hear something and all of a sudden a memory or thought will enter my brain and the tears will begin to roll. It happened two days ago in the car on the way to work. (It had nothing to do with having to go to work.) It happened again last night. The tear session lasted all of sixty seconds and then it was over.
I’ve noticed that memories seem to bring tears to my eyes much more regularly these days. The holidays always have a tendency to make me slightly more weepy but I’ve noticed it even at non-holiday moments as well.
I’m learning to just go with it. It doesn’t ruin my day or change my happy mood to sad. Sometimes I think the tears just need to come out.
