If someone could truly see inside my mind and tell me what’s going on with all of the feelings and thoughts that I have, it would be a miracle. God can see it, I know. Why He chooses to let some of us have minds that are so intricately intwined with relentless, racing thoughts and yet others seem to be able to think about nothing is beyond me. So much of me wishes to share my inner, deepest secrets or at least my journals that follow the paths of my thoughts through the years. And yet, if I did, what would the outcome be? Would anyone notice? Would anyone care? Would it matter if they did or didn’t?
Somehow I know that I’m not the only one to have ever pondered this. Here’s one of the things I just wrote in my journal,
So much of me wishes to just sell all that I have, get a camper (no matter how small), and travel North America. But, I find the idea daunting and overwhelming… despite the excitement and exhilaration of it. So, I revert to “hiding” behind a mask or screen… or fake smiles.
And then, I googled “hiding behind a smile,” and (to me) it’s amazing all of the memes, articles, and even songs that have been written about this.
One song’s lyrics stood out (mainly due to Google… how much money do they get for this, anyway?!).
And then a contrasting song which is utterly the complete opposite (and yet not). (How redundant is that?!)
(Does anyone else see the irony in the fact that the Snow Globe video uses a camper as the main setting?)
