I forced myself to go out for a walk today. I have a serious case of SAD. I grumbled, kicked and screamed literally all the way up the hill! I am absolutely sick of clouds, snow and wind!!!! It is only a 3 mile route but at least I can say I did something.
Funny thing happened once I got to the top, the sun came out for about 5 min. I actually stood in the middle of that sunny spot in the road until it went back behind the clouds. I put my face towards the sun and felt the warmth on my cheeks, oooooh.....I closed my eyes and listened to the birds chattering around me and I was in a happy place. At least for a little while. Then I felt something else on my cheeks....snow.
I had the sun for moment. Everything else stopped and I truely was in the moment. I believe the universe was giving me hope. I am closer to Spring and more sunshine everyday. We have changed into a new month and with it comes the promise of new beginnings and renewal. I am experiencing some personal new beginnings and as much as they may be welcomed, they are not easy to take. I have to believe that the sun will find me and the blossoms will begin.
