In Like a Lion: Rebirth, Revitalization, Hope

In Like a Lion, Rebirth, Revitalization, HopeWell, here we are, the first of March, and I am in my annual armpit of winter funk.

Pre-holidays, and even into the beginning of January I had a lot of blogging and business goals. I was ready to hit 2014 running. I was full of energy, confidence, and hope. This was going to be my year.

And then Christmas and New Year’s happened, and I had taken a lot of time off. Time off is always good, but it makes me lazy. Complacent.

Then January and February happened. Bitter cold temps, school closings, illnesses. Now I am complacent and uninspired.

I take heart in knowing that I’m not alone. Mothers everywhere are feeling the strain of being locked inside with bored kids. Sick kids. Bored and sick kids. Everything in-between.

Old Man Winter still has a strong hold on many of us, but here and there we have had slightly warmer temperatures offering a glimmer of hope. The days are getting longer and brighter. Next week is Daylight Savings. I’m ready. It’s been very dark in here, and I am desperate for some light at the end of this tunnel.

Meteorological spring begins today. And today I turn 35. March is coming in like a lion, bringing with it renewed hope, energy, and confidence for the year to come. It’s time to pull myself from the dark funk and let awakening and rebirth revitalize and inspire me. My year – my life – is standing in front of me. It’s still mine. I just have to take it.

Are you ready to shake the funk of winter and greet all that spring can bring?
