This is something that I thought of one night as I began to think of this title.

I wanted something to do. The moon identity switch-a-roo came in mighty handy when it was there. At first, the moon identity switch-a-roo changed people. I couldn't explain why its existence changed them.; I was thirsting for the answer. The full moon appeared in the darkness when the coyotes howled.

Only to find that the personality of my character was beginning to change, I sat up suddenly, trying to figure out who I was.
I began to think about how I could help people believe in themselves. My imagination took over when the engine in my brain started up in my noggin. It said, "Go for it. To the best of your ability, give it a try. It's best to do it sooner than later."

Feeling sluggish, the days went slowly by. I felt like this at various times in my life. It's the time in life when I look in the mirror, and find that I have to battle with all the negativity inside my head.. When this happens, the first thing that I do is to go to the sink, grab a washcloth, put it in warm water, and then wipe my face with it. This leaves me feeling refreshed. I go back to the mirror and say, "I am pretty. I feel pretty. I won't let you make me feel bad about myself anymore." Then, I take time to read a book to shake off all the bad vibes; this takes my realm of thinking to a better place. To put my mind at ease, I do some little relaxation techniques. The rest of the crud clears up when it tries to interfere with all the sluggishness. After that, I take a little walk. "It will be a good day", I tell myself.

At the beginning of the day, I am beaming! This is good for the moon identity switch-a-roo. As a person, I feel brand new. It doesn't hurt to give this a try.
