Oh, I have it. Really, I have pre-spring fever – that overwhelming feeling of “enough already with the gray skies and the blustery wind and the still-need-a-parka-and-gloves-and-it’s-March, for chrissakes!” It’s that breaking point when, after slogging through January and February, I’m pretty sure I can’t take another moment without some sunshine on my pasty winter-worn face. Spring is so close, I can almost taste it, but it’s not here YET.
They say it’s always darkest before the dawn. Well, last Sunday’s dawn brought a glimmer of renewed hope – Daylight Savings Time has arrived! As I turned the clocks forward, I felt my attitude turning forward, too. A second wind, a warmer wind, is on its way.
It’s time to let go of the heaviness of too many cold gray days and trust the impending return of warm sun-filled spring to lift our spirits and our energy. Meanwhile, I think I’ll just take a nap ‘til it arrives.
