Have you ever just felt stretched. Like your on one of those torture machines. You know the one, where your legs are tied to pulleys at one end of a table and your arms are tied to them at the other end, then someone or something is cranking a crank stretching your body in all directions. I feel stretched in many directions often. I may feel like doing something that might not be right or good and being pulled the other way to do the right thing. I can be stretched when I know someone needs my help but I just really don't want to help. The thoughts I have can stretch me too. When I start feeling this way I want to run and hide, or at least try to. That accomplishes nothing. We have to stretch before we exercise, I guess before we make decisions we should be stretched also. It can be painful, but needed.
“I feel thin, sort of stretched, like butter scraped over too much bread.”~Bilbo Baggins ~ J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
