I've notice a definite downward cycle going on in my mood of late. It's time to figure out why and address it. I think meditation is a good way to begin. Open up my mind and allow underlying issues to come up.
So far, nothing glaring has occurred to me. Some things take time, patience and the willingness to keep delving into yourself to uproot deep issues. I am definitely not giving in to a dark mood simply because it's there. I will remain most grateful and thankful for a sound mind and see it rise up.
I am most grateful and thankful for my life and all the good things in store for my future. The doldrums will pass, of this I am certain. For if there's anything I've learned, it's life is change. Nothing stays the same.
So, whether times are good or not, remember, it's all subject to change. When it does, go with it and see where it takes you. Self discovery is a never ending journey. We are all complex individuals with complex relationships and circumstances. Embrace the down times to look up to the next peak.
It's in the climbing out of a pit that you build muscle to get you up to the high places. The journey is just that, it goes on throughout life. Run the race, don't give up and don't give in to a cycle. Better days are ahead. Or not. Either way it's just a season. I may not stay on a mountain top, but I'll always have what I learned there.
