It's midnight to the cross over of the next day and I'm here almost to the end of this movie that I realize is so much more gear towards life than fiction. I like these kinds of movies.
The end brought welled up tears to my eyes.
My kids are sleeping.
I'm on guard in a sort of way mothers do when they are alone with their children.
And then it hits. That space of loneliness that makes you feel the need for something, someone, daylight, the phone, people,...something.
I'm not sad.
I'm just lonely and I hope by tomorrow, it will go away. For now I'll let it pass through me.
If it doesn't leave tomorrow. I'll give it incentive to leave.
If it still doesn't, then let it be until it's time is spent.
I'm used to loneliness.
“When I get lonely these days, I think: So BE lonely, Liz. Learn your way around loneliness. Make a map of it. Sit with it, for once in your life. Welcome to the human experience. But never again use another person's body or emotions as a scratching post for your own unfulfilled yearnings.”
― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love
