Sometimes, some days … even some moments can be like that. A combination of colors sights sounds stress nerves all bound into the heart the brain the nervous system and we are in that moment, word finding. Just stunned and stopped for a moment looking for the words, those words that are right on the tip of our tongue yet cannot come out, lost somewhere in our brain and our thinking about so many things, so many people, so many issues, heartaches, good things all wrapped into a brain filled and nerves that are frayed or sending the wrong messages at the same time, mixing good with bad. Ever had those times?
Sure to be losing you ever loving mind, or wondering if dementia has set in or that you have just completely lost the word for “ammonia” as you search under cupboards shelves and closets knowing what you are looking for but can’t come up with the name of it… stress mounts and the desperation to find what ever it is you are looking for becomes more like a search and seize movie on CSI?
Or you could be involved in a conversation and hear the stories of another, trying to remain calm, remain neutral, knowing that each person has their own opinion, their own 1st Amendment rights, yet seem to have forgotten the responsibilities that come along with those rights, yet you are looking for the words to keep you from wanting to reach over the table and knock common sense into them? Ever had times like that… words are powerful, they sometimes get lost from the brain to the tongue before coming out from the mouth and we have to wonder if it is us or just the overwhelming amount of information we are already coping with. Sometimes when trying and looking for words, it may be that the best thing is to laugh, to reset and rest the brain just for the moment. to laugh hard and loud as when we are doing that we just cannot experience stress at the same time. It may just be that is the answer to those times I’m thinking.
In times of great stress, heartache, fear, or even those times when we read or engage in conversations feeling our nerves get taut and our senses get alert… as we find the need to word find or search for words. That is the time to take a breath, to look for the humor in it, to stop searching and just find something that we can laugh at, even if it’s at ourselves.
The worry will do no good, getting all jacked up will only increase the adrenalin and leave us weak afterwards… and unless we plan on lifting a car from someone in harms way I doubt it will help. folks will be a different as each rain drop, each snowflake, each sunset and so will we. We are each unique in that way. Each persons joys, pain, grief walk is unique.
And, that looking for words, word finding and losing your cell phone and car keys that are probably in your hand is happening to everyone around the globe cos’ everyone is stressing out over things that they cannot control today, things and people that have their own way, their own path, their own rights to say what they want about what they believe.
And that is what makes us a free country because of those who signed a blank check to serve, some gave all while all gave some.
