Everyone always says that weather affects our moods and our bodies. What if it does more then that?
You know when it's one of those days where the weather outside is dark and cloudy. The wind is cold and the rain is falling and all you want to do is lie in bed with a good book or movie? Most people hate those days, I love them. I live in long island, the days here are always sunny and humid no matter what season it is. The last few days we had a storm for the first time in what seems like forever. For three straight days, we had cloudy, cold, rainy weather. Everyone hid inside, but I wanted to dance in the rain.
Ive been struggling for some time now. I cant seem to find any peace in my life. I am always sad and tired. I feel like I am constantly fighting just to stay up. During those three dark stormy days, I felt better, more alive. I had the energy and the want to do things. Everything around me was breaking. The trees were being bend by the wind. The branches were being broken. The animals hid away from the storm, but all I wanted to do is stand right in the middle of it all. I would feel the wind go straight through me and it felt like a breath of fresh air. Feeling the storm gave me peace. It was like I was myself again.
On the fourth day, the sun and the humid came back and I was once again sad and tired. It felt like I wanted to jump out of my own skin and disperse into a million little peace's. I missed the storm. I missed the peace that it gave me. The peace that I am desperately trying to find.
On the fifth day, it was cloudy again and once again I felt that peace. That is when I realized that the weather had an effect on me.
The reason I am telling you this is because I was wondering if anyone has ever felt anything like this?
