Waiting For The Sunshine...

Feeling down sometimes is natural. But when that feeling just won't seem to go away, it can be even more discouraging. Have you ever realized that you feel happier when the sun comes out from behind the clouds? I started paying attention, and my mood really is affected by the weather. I think weather is a great analogy for the moods of our soul. There are times in our lives when we just can't seem to see things positive no matter how hard we try. It seems like a permanant dark cloud has settled over our head. These are the times that we need to remember that just like the changes in the sky, the emotional clouds will also pass away and the sunshine will once again return. If you realize that it is a passing emotion, that may linger at times, but is in no way permanent, it just might ease your mind. And don't forget that sadness and depression are common to humanity, and we can encourage and lean upon each other when we are down. Never isolate yourself or hide your pain. It's okay to cry.
