Health Alert Warning!!! It may be impacting you as well

Here it is....blunt and to the point..... I have a terrible case of either Cabin Fever, Spring Fever, or both. I am SICK of my house (which I actually really love), my "routine" (which is boring and sucks), and Mother Nature. One day, The Great Mother Nature tempts us with the changing of the seasons by carressing our faces with sunshine, gentle breezes like a lovers kiss and 65 degrees, and then next day she balls up her fists and pummels us with ice, cold, arctic blasts, and skies so dull and soulless that you wonder if the sun will ever shine again.

The last two days, I have balled up on my couch and have done nothing-much. I am SOOO tired of "pulling myself up by my boot-straps" or "putting on my Big Girl panties" or whatever the latest term is. I just want to get outside, start a garden without the threat of snow or frost taking it out, maybe start walking to get ready for the Rad Run (not sure if I am going to make it this year), and start putting purpose to my life.

My journey to living a healthy, active, and balanced life has taken me far enough into it to know that I have missed it the last couple of days; but I have not traversed far enough on this road to see dramatic changes in the landscape of my life. I am ITCHING to be into where my life is going instead of this crappy limbo.

I have NEVER been someone who sits by and lets life's waves roll up onto my beach. I dive head-first into the foamy caps of life's waves and rhythms to explore, add to, pull up others who are struggling with the under-toe, and weep for those whom the waves have taken home. I am not a by-stander kind of person. And, sitting here doing nothing much, is making me CRAZY!

My life has purpose -- I have felt it in every cell of my being my whole life. I just don't know what my purpose is for this next phase. And I am NOT good at waiting to see.

Well - that is my whine for the day. Even though I am sick of it, I will "put my Big Girl Panties" on, re-engage in this journey, and go out to see where the road of today will lead me.

    Yes to the cabin fever! With the weird weather, my body is confused. Daffodils should be out but it's going to snow here next week? Spring will be here for real soon!
