I Swear I Have My Good Moods

Today, I am in a wonderful mood.

I don’t exactly remember the last time I was this happy

All I know is that I want to hold onto it forever

I know that is such an unrealistic goal, given my disposition to mood swings

Violent storms, thou art my emotions

But the eye, the perfect calm in my mood swings, does come

I swear, I am NOT always brooding

I swear, I am not negative (all the time)

Today, I am hopeful! I am hopeful that I will be happy until tomorrow, and beyond.

Today, a weight has been (temporarily) lifted

Thank Goodness, because the weight was crushing my body and spirit

Smiling comes easy today

Even my tears need a break

Even my brain needs a break from ruminating on my failures

So, I stay and enjoy the good mood, altering nothing lest it be disturbed

I am a graduate of the University of Mount Union. I work for ResCare HomeCare as a direct support professional. I was a psychology major and am hoping to get a master's degree in Business Administration with a concentration on healthcare... Somewhere. I am still interested in English and theatre. Writing had always been one of my passions until recently. It takes too much time and effort, which is why I just draw comics now. Believe it or not, drawing comics is easier for me to express myself than writing. I also love animals. When I am not working hard on whatever project I happen to have my hands on, I am at home playing with my animals. I live with two cats named Garfield and Oreo. I also love to listen to all kinds of music, such as The Birthday Massacre, Emilie Autumn, The Cruxshadows, The Cranberries, Celldweller, Emperor, R.E.M., Future Funk Squad, Symphony X, Einherjer, Borknagar, and Nightwish. And I'm married. But don't tell the government. They suck the fun out of it.

  1. is that due to chemical imbalance ? I think One doc told me this. if there is all good how we can know it is good. I think its a mix bag. But the question is can we keep a middle path? Not moving to the extremes. Keep well.
