'Somedays I am the Flowers, Somedays I am the Rain'

'Somedays I am the Flowers, Somedays I am the Rain'

Eboni wearing Pretty Little ThingThis beautiful quote was something I saw around the time of World Mental Health Day. It was posted by a fellow blogger and I immediately screen-grabbed it. The words stuck with me because high's and low's are something I struggle with a lot. Not just your average PMS mood swings, but sudden spouts of depression brought on by a variety of things. My self confidence, my lack of sleep, my social anxiety, relationships, friendships and so on.

It's because of my highs, my happiness and my success, that I know the "storm" is only temporary and there is so much more to come. I know this, because it is a pattern that just repeats itself #Life (woaahh!)

I encourage myself to learn from all my experiences and most importantly, remain grounded. 
All flowers need a little rain to grow :)
Seeing this quote being shared around the online community reassures me that I am not alone in feeling this way. And that it is ok to not to be ok all the time, with no apologies!
I wonder if any of you lovely readers can relate to this quote at all?
