We all have experienced it sometime or another…rainy days. You know those times when your most cheerful friend fails to lift your spirits and is quite annoying to be around. When comedies are ineffectual and you lean toward dramedies instead. When days are gloomy and you barely peek out your window let alone step outside for some fresh air. Well I have experienced these dampening conditions lately; both literally and figuratively speaking. We have been having so much rain, I haven’t opened my window shades in about a week. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m appreciative for our liquid sunshine but when it pours consecutively, its hard to leave my house. Never been the singing in the rain type; I’m more like the I don’t want my feet to get all squishy. This weather has symbolized the mood I’ve been beridden in lately… Stormy, just stormy! It was a challenge for me to lift myself out of my slumpy funk. How did I do it? I turned towards reading. I couldn’t get enough things to read to boggle my mind. I read web articles, books, and magazines. I made sure to fill my mind with all sorts of issues to escape my own quandaries and…it worked. When you are moody, how do you relieve yourself?
