Mood Ring Exploded...

Have you ever had one of those days where you think your mood ring (if you wore one) would explode?
I have high highs and low lows. David had the same kind of thing. The only way to turn it around is to change the way you think -- but in the depths of the low,
all the bushes around you contain contain an enemy.

Ninjas ready to strike.

When I'm in one of those moods - I also tend to be desirous to rant about the things that I wanted to rant about before.

Like people who made no effort to communicate with me (even though I tried) -- and yet still want to pretend there's a relationship. I actually have an easier time communicating with people who didn't pretend there was a relationship, than I do with those that did. (I know it's because I was more emotionally invested in the relationship. And therefore more let down when it was one sided.)

or the one constant -- I don't like fake people. They make me twitchy.

or that time  --- when that thing -- and ... yeah, you see where I'm going with this.

It can be an interesting ride.  It's probably a good thing I don't have a mood ring.

When these moods strike- platitudes are my enemy. The disdain I have for them is enormous. Grate on my teeth kind of annoyance.

Generally speaking, I am fairly optimistic, easy-going, kind of person. (note that I did not say stress free)
but there are just times -- when the glass is half empty.
or - horror of horrors - just a glass.

Coming out of a low place, though - makes me cherish and relish life and the randomness that God has given me.

I can completely relate to David's psalms..going from one extreme thought (They're coming to get me) to the other (he puts my enemies at my feet) ... You know what?? I enjoy that God knows where I am even in the lowest of the low places. Especially when they feel so damn solitary.

I'm a WYSIWYG person. What you see is what you get. Which includes the random blog post from somewhere lower than a high place...

Even so - I know.....

I KNOW -

there WILL be something beautiful come from it.

ha- Cristina made me laugh.
Is it bad that I like to know that other people rant too? Sorry, but I still am a little glad about that! If I was there, I would climb down there with you and have tea, coffee, whatever...we could hang out, vent and eat goodies.

I try to at least have a fancy looking glass. ;o)

Hug? HUG.

methinks you are far, far too young for a mood ring. Mine, back in junior high, was awesome. But no matter how happy I was, my hands just will not warm up. So it only worked if I wanted black. :P

I can so relate. Last week there was one of those medication ads on tv & Blondie asked me if I was depressed. Ha!

Loved the video! Blondie got their new cd for Christmas.

Usually, when I have one of those days, the next day is, well, my time of the month. Or, at least, that's what Not-So-Classic hopes so that there's a reason...
