Part of my effort to shove myself into a healthier mindset involves reminding myself of my blessings, and, the blessing I'm counting today is definitely the onset of longer days. After work today, I took advantage of the sunlight to play with the Boomer dog in the backyard.
He benefited from it, I benefited from it, all was right with the world.
Daylight Savings Time ends in a mere 16 days, and the spring equinox happens thirteen days later. Easter is late this year, but, with any luck, the weather will cooperate and we won't be shoveling a path for the Easter Bunny through snow.
Spring temperatures, longer days, more sunlight, and a return to the porch are within sight! I can do this!
Also, this quote from the front cover of The Magnolia Journal caught my eye yesterday as Queen B and I were perusing the magazine section at the Hellmouth (she was down from Neighboring City for the night, giving me a chance to semi-celebrate her upcoming birthday, and, I was thrilled to have her home)...
...it spoke to my heart, and, reminded me that I am in this place, at this time, for a purpose; I just have to hold on long enough to understand what that purpose is.
I can do it.
