Waiting For Sunflower Days

Since the beginning of the year, I’ve been feeling out of sorts.  It’s my normal cycle to feel blah after the Holidays and New Year’s Eve comes and goes, and then I start thinking about how much longer I have until warmer weather.  No matter what I try to do to pass this feeling and blah-ness, nothing seems to work and everything seems overwhelming to me.  It makes me want to hide out under a blanket and deal with things later.  I don’t like how dark it gets so early in the day, but I try to think positive about it and remember that it’s slowly staying light out a little more each day.  I don’t like the cold and snow, but try to remember that I can take pretty snow pictures.  I don’t like running in the cold, but try to remember that if I keep up with it I won’t have to basically start over and begin again in the Spring.  It’s still really tough for me to think positive and not feel so blue though.  All my New Year resolutions feel daunting to me right now and my To Do list seems to grow every day, not getting smaller.  I’m trying to focus on one thing at a time and cross things off slowly but it still makes me feel overwhelmed.  I’m also trying to find something fun I can do each day to make Winter go by a little faster, so I’m focusing on my photo taking every day and reading more (I’m reading Gone With the Wind now and I like it much more than I thought I would).  I’m also trying to cook more each day and eat a little healthier instead of the junk I normally gravitate to when I feel blah.  It’s just a tough time of year for me.  I can’t wait for warmer days to come again but until then: tomorrow is a new (cold) day and a new day to cross something off my To Do list.  (Picture taken 7/30/13)
