"I Need a Good Cry!"

“Yesterday, I cried.
I came home, went straight to my room,
sat on the edge of my bed,
kicked off my shoes, unhooked my bra,
and I had myself a good cry.” 
― Iyanla Vanzant, Yesterday, I Cried 

Today, I was mentally overloaded, and I thought about the above quote by Iyanla Vanzant. I could not wait to get home to take off my bra and get in the bed and have a really good cry....

I am not sad! No, that is not it at all!

It's just.......I can't find the exact words, but let me draw you a mental picture!

Since September, I have been on the grind mentally..I have read lots of short stories, poems, novels, essays, emails, and I have also read many, many books for pleasure. I've crammed a lot of knowledge into this brain.

In a given day, I make sooooo many decisions and not all of my decisions are good, but I have given up on being perfect. But, all those decisions, about and for children, will cause the brain's circuit breaker to come on and shut down the mental flow for a little while for preservation.

I'm not complaining, but after a day that started at 5am, because I need to do cardio before I go to work, writing two evaluations on students, teaching The Odyssey to two classes, listening and evaluating an AP student's presentation, planning for the day that I am taking off, and sitting through a presentation on how to fulfill the requirements for the new state evaluation system, my brain is on complete overload, and I feel the need to take off my bra and cry!

After a good cry, I will more than likely feel relieved, and my mental flow will start again, and I will laugh at myself real hard, and tomorrow I will attend to my tasks with joy.

So, I am off to cry, but.....Don't feel bad for me, because I am not sad; I just need a good cry!

Summer........where are you?
