February is merely as long as is needed to pass the time until March
Dr. J. R. Stockton
It's Wonderful Wednesday and I'm still thinking Spring!
February is moving by slowly here at my house. Ever since they said that the groundhog predicted an early Spring, I've been waiting for it to happen. We've had some warmer weather and the days are getting longer, but still it's cold and there is a lot of snow on the ground here.
There's a noticeable difference between the amount of daylight we enjoy in mid-February compared to mid-December. A lot of people complain more about the darkness of winter around here than the cold.
During this dreary overload of cold and snow, I'm trying to remember the small things that can lift us from melancholy and a down mood. Little things like color, a scent, and even a bit of light can lift our spirit and soul.
The days are getting longer. Little changes abound.
The days are consistently and predictably getting longer, but the weather is not consistently and predictably getting better. We often have very cold snaps in February. So perhaps our subconscious minds are confused. Should we be up or down? Brighter but colder? Our minds say, I'm deeply bewildered. We've been in darkness and cold for a long time now. We just need it to end!
Remember that if you feel suddenly down and despondent this month, just know that you're not alone, and you're not crazy.
Try to keep aware and keep your heart and mind open. Smiles, rebirth, renewal, and light are everywhere
SPRING will come and it will be WONDERFUL! We'll be in the 40's today but I've heard some say they have seen 70 already this week. It's not so here in Northern Ohio for sure.
I hope your Wednesday is a WONDERFUL one!
