Refocus and Regroup
My mom used to say during sometime in February that she had "the winter pissies". I love winter and I am enjoying the cold. However, I think of her often and how she would one day state her doneness with winter, she was quite dramatic about it. After her declaration she seemed happy and content just acknowledging her state of mind. I work hard at holding onto positive thinking and sometimes it eludes me. The winter is not causing this (or so I think) but there needs to be an adjustment in my thought processes. My expectations of others and of myself.
So today I pulled out pen and paper. Writing lists are a clear way to discern my path. Exercise also helps and yesterday I was out walking and felt so much better after a week of crazy weather that held me indoors for too long. How about you? How do you regroup? How do you refocus? I'm curious.
Our son is visiting for the second half of his first spring break (he has two of them). Unfortunately, his train on Amtrak was delayed by two hours due to signal problems at the south station in Boston. I was reading the news online and it appeared both the morning and evening commute were disrupted. But he's home now, phew! We have plans for lunch out and some shopping.
Have a great weekend!
