The last couple of weeks has been rainy and cold, impacting my mood. I feel downcast; the grey sky outside feels like a reflection of my inner state. The rain pounding against the window panes echoes the dullness that has settled inside me.

It is hard to find ways to lift my spirits. I’m waiting for it to pass.

Despite all this, I know that eventually, the sun will shine again, and so will my spirits. Until then, I’ll hope for a brighter day ahead.
