I realize my mood more as I age. I think when I was younger I either didn’t realize my mood swings or I didn’t have them. Maybe I blamed the way I felt on the external world more than I do now. Now I’m internal.
The outside world doesn’t effect me as much as my internal chi. If I feel good and I get bad news I take it well. If I feel bad and I get regular news it annoys me.
I think the way I feel has to do with sleep that day, exercise that day, sugar intake at the time, caffeine level, and fullness of belly. My good days and bad days depend on my chemical balances, not on other people and events. This is something that I can control. I have the power to effect my quality of life. -unfigurable
