Winter Blues...

Friday, March 01, 2013

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.

    LOL! I grumble etc when I'm out for a walk, too!!

    I even wrote a song about it. (Gave me something to focus on while walking.)

    You can the song, in a blog on my SPpage. Written a while back. Maybe it will help you?

    Your sun moment sounds like a rainbow moment, too. :-)

    Spring is just around the corner! I am actually starting the first of my veggie seeds tonight and seeing those first little leaves poke through the soil is always rejuvenating. Maybe treating yourself to some flowers could brighten things up?
