Me and My Moods

It’s frustrating to me when I seem to be doing fine one day and then out of the blue my mood takes a nose dive. I am left with no energy and no motivation to accomplish all that I need to do and all that I want to do in that day. Monday for example was a seemingly perfect day. Wednesday however was a really low day. But I have been there before, and I will be there again.
I know now through experience to just enjoy the good day and never mind what happens the next day. I just want to enjoy each good day! I cannot spend my time waiting for the next time that my mood drops because I might not notice or realize the good days and what I can achieve. There are times that my day is so productive that I almost feel that I won’t ever have a bad one again. Because when you are in a certain mood it’s hard to see the opposite mood. Well that’s how it seems to me. Even the down days feel like they will never end, and tomorrow will be the same. The best thing for me is to remember that life is ever-changing, and I want to cherish my good days and though I may have a bad day, I just seek out the best things of that day and keep living for every day. I want to see the beauty in every day. Sometimes I say to myself, why can’t I be like everyone else but perhaps having such dramatic mood shifts is a gift in a strange way. They help me see just how precious life really is and how grateful I am to be alive.
Without the rain there would be no flowers.
It finding the gem among the stones and treasuring it.

    Thank you Linda for writing this. I never thought to look at our dramatic mood shifts as blessings. On low days, I will remember to look for the gems among the rocks just like you said.
