With the change of weather- that funkiness between winter and spring- many often find themselves struggling to rid themselves of the "bogged down" feeling. Their energy is zapped with the time change, over-commitments from the start of the new year, and too many expectations to be met. If this is you, you may also be trying to sort out the dampened emotions you are feeling (without any sort of basis for them) and attempting to find some sort of solution to get out of your "funk". Many women struggle with this time of year and the weather. We want so badly for plants to bloom, growth to begin, and the sunshine to light up our days! The weather teases us with slivers of sunshine and 5-minute showers, and yet, the snow and wind return to blanket our days with the morsels of cold winter once again.
I wanted to write this post today to simply remind you spring will be here before you know it and with it will come growth, renewal, and revival of the energy you so wish you had right now. Have hope. And if you are struggling to get out of your funk and can't seem to muster the energy to be enthusiastic about your plans for the day, begin to explore the simple pleasures of your day that make life so meaningful to you. Take more time to acknowledge what brings you comfort and what brightens your day. These things can be as simple as that first cup of coffee at the start of your morning, the bubble bath you embrace after a long day's work, or the subtle words exchanged between friends. Simple pleasures are meaningful and they can make a huge difference in an otherwise "bogged down" day.
Ladies, the light spring showers will come, the sun will shine, and the energy of spring and summer will soon be here. Find simple pleasures to highlight your day and get excited about what tomorrow might bring! Don't let the weather impact your days, but rather let your days impact how you see the weather!
