To avoid saying something I’ll regret later, I keep mum.
A barbacoa burrito bowl always makes me smile.
4. Watch “Will and Grace”.
My favorite TV show of all time. The comedic timing of that show was brilliant!
5. Pour a Drink.
Honey Whiskey is always available in my home.
Spend some time scrolling through pins and forget all about your bad mood.
Putting my thoughts/feelings in my journal relieves so much tension. When I go back to read it, I can recognize the catalysts that sparked my bad mood.
8. Take a walk.
Fresh air to clear the mind and get some exercise.
Put on some upbeat music and dance it out!
When all else fails, goodnight.
Sometimes, you just want to wallow in your own crappy mood. Really, you do. I have moments when I just want my emotional weather report to reflect thunderstorms with a 90% chance of lightning. It’s safe to say that my mood is less than stellar and I don’t see a problem with it.
Now, while I’m in the midst of my moodiness, I have these folks fluttering around with words of wisdom dipped in glitter and sunshine.
“You need to perk up.”
I refer to these folks as Optimistic Unicorns, aka walking emotional contradictions. Full of sunshine and the spirit of a well-loved mythical creature, these folks irk my damn nerves. Take all that optimism elsewhere and let my thunderstorm play out.
I promise I’ll return to my normal self…eventually.
Nobody understands the sadness behind those eyes
Like someone who lives that sadness every day.
Memories of the past
Emotional shrapnel tears through the soul
Shoulders heavy with burden.
A story spoken
The moment you cleanse your soul of all emotional toxicity, love, in all its forms, finds you.
Lemons smell so fresh to me. In the spring/summer, I keep some lemons in a bowl on my coffee table. During the winter, I usually light a lemon-scented candle. Instant happy mood for me.
Mae West described sex as “emotion in motion.” Regardless of preference, sex is the physical representation of emotion.
For me, there’s something sexy about scratches and bites. The need to just “take it”. Sometimes, that’s how you feel. Can’t have slow motion sex all of the time…just saying.
Ever have sex after an argument? Make up sex is awesome! Perfect combination of “I’m angry” and “Let’s screw and forget about it”. If you’ve never had it, feel free to pick a petty argument and see for yourself. Thank me later.
Break up sex is another fave. That last romp before lovers depart. You give it your all because you want to leave him/her with memorable experience.
Have sex responsibly.
