Mood swings can alter how I feel. I feel sad now due to a mood swing. Sometimes, it shadows over me when I least expect it and the heart aches, even when life seems so perfect. Sometimes, it happens due to lack of self-care and sometimes for no reason at all! But I know that this feeling isn’t permanent. I know that things will become better as long as I take good care of myself. I know that the sadness I feel now is a visitor popping by and she’ll go away after awhile. I’ve decided to be kind to sadness. I’ve decided to open my heart and let her linger for awhile. She likes to remind me that I’m human. So, I’ll let her stop by, maybe offer her a cup of tea. Then watch her eventually leave.
