There is a grain of truth in the notion that the higher you fly, the lower you'll drop.
All grist for the mill and if you're prone to swinging moods my suggestion would be to go to a part of yourself where you can thoroughly look on in wonder at the sheer phenomenology of it. We get amazing insights at both ends of the feeling-good/feeling-bad spectrum both equally worthy in what they show us.
Wildly swinging moods are pretty exhausting and stressful and eventually debilitating. In their most extreme manifestation they are pathologised into psychological disorders such as bi-polar or manic/depression.
There is something you can do that will decrease the extreme-ness of mood swings.
Next time you find yourself over-the-moon-happy, absolutely blissfully tickled-pink and contented, perhaps even delirious with joy (wow), take a minute to quickly remember what it felt like to feel the complete opposite. When instead you wished the floor would swallow you up or that you could perhaps transmogrify into a coat rack or something. Take a snapshot of yourself in the moment and bring towards your mind a time when you were not feeling quite so hot shit.
Doing this will decrease the pendulum swing of moods, tending you toward equilibrium.
I'd agree that balance can be a bit boring. It can appear as if there's not much happening. However you can trust that your mind and body aren't geared towards inertia and something will inspire and excite you and get you up off the couch.
