accepting the hand I've been dealt and work with it rather than against it. Creativity is one thing that has been heightened during my mania and an is escape from my depression; bipolar disorder has cultivated my creative mind- how cool is that?
Maybe this ^ is just me, comment if you're also bipolar and experience more brain activity (positive and negative) at night. Its like my brain finally starts working when I should be going to sleep, especially (& ironically) when I'm depressed and need sleep the most. This can be both good - providing moments of creative focus - and bad - prolonging the day's negative focus.
Here's a little gaze into a positive night of ferociously firing neurones that resulted in the writing of a song about my life, my mom's massive influence on me and the way she goes above and beyond her call of duty every day to be there for me.
All Bet's On You
Ive been tired for so long,
Just wait until the moments gone
To rest my head upon this pillow top.
Cause through the wind and through the rain
I follow down the path I came from.
In a stand off, im betting on you any day
When the bets are off, my moneys on you anyway
We could be a thousand miles apart
And you'd still be in my heart, everyday.
I've been known to wander alone
But I'll never forget my home with you
You don't care who's wrong or wright
Your strength has always been your will to fight
I smile your smile, you'd drive for
You'd drive for miles and miles, all
You'd drive all night, just to
To make things alright
