When it is OK to Cry

Suzanne, Sara and I took Salvatore to see Winnie the Pooh.
We all loved it.
Before the movie, they showed a cute little short called The Ballad of Nessie.
Very. Well. Done.
If you have seen the movie already, then you could finish this paragraph yourself. If you have not, then here is a brief summary:

Nessie is looking for the perfect place to live with her little best friend. During her long search of things not quite right, she encounters another who makes it very difficult for her to be where she wants to be. After much disappointment and dismay, she finally starts to cry.
She cries and cries and cries and cries.
She also finally stops.
When she stops, she has cried so much, that she has actually created the Loch (lake) where she is to now live.
Her tears have created the perfect place for her.
Sometimes, crying is pointless. We all know that.
But sometimes, it leads you to a better place. A different place.
So, if it is pointless...then stop. Wipe your eyes. Move ahead.
If it is not, then cry away. Something wonderful could be just ahead.
