I woke up feeling restless today. At first I thought that I just needed to sit down and come up with a schedule and some new goals for myself. Then it dawned on me. I feel this way every November. It's partly due to the shortened daylight hours and the colder weather. It's also partly due to the fact that I lost my father in November. The feelings don't come to the surface as often as they did in the first few years, but they're still there, lying in wait to hit me over the head.
I am going to take charge this year. I will spend today being as active as I can. I will spend time coming up with a schedule for myself. I need to look for new things to keep me active and occupied. It's time for new goals. It's time to add another volunteer opportunity. I'll stick with the one I have one day a week. But it's time to broaden my horizons a little. I can do this.
