Why I Feel Like a Little Green Monkey
That little green monkey seems sorta symbolic of how this transition - our move - has been. I found this tiny fellow, a tortured and abandoned eraser, on the ground outside of the storage area where my belongings were stored for the past 30 days or so. He sort of represents how I feel sometimes: well-loved, a little broken, sometimes forgotten and loss.
I am well loved by my family (especially my children) and close friends, but sometimes they forget to check up on you or forget what you're dealing with. I guess that should be: They forget to check up on me and forget what I'm dealing with. I'm feeling a little broken with the additional pain I've been going through from the move and then having to get everything situated here.
And then there's the feeling of loss.
It probably has to do with anxiety. You know that feeling when you walk into a room and are overwhelmed by what you see? Of having so much to do it doesn't feel like you can tackle it? Then, having so much to do before you can do the other things you need to do... Does that make any sense at all?
Yup, I got all of that from the loss little, green monkey. Who, by the way, I grabbed up and put in my pocket.
What are the subtle symbols in your life that may be giving you a clue into how you're feeling?
