Being one of the months that brings us the day and night in balance often makes March a positive time. As the month winds down I am reflecting on how the longer hours of light change our very nature. All of a sudden we are such busy bees and we try to pack more into our days. Or at least that is what I do. A to-do list that was ambitious in January is just not enough in March.
Dave and I are both stretching the possible for ourselves. How much can you accomplish today, this week, this month? Oh, sure I'll add one more thing, I'm sure I have time for that. And then the inevitable sinking feeling in your stomach happens and you start to get a bit nervous that you have bitten off more than you can chew. The list in your head or on paper or if you are fancy, on your cool app list thingy becomes rather daunting and you run the risk of avoiding it at all cost.
But the light in its in your face brightness gives you a tiny bit more energy. You dig deep, you cross off one thing at a time. You delegate (maybe). And slowly but surely it will get done. It will get done. Spring comes, snow (if you have any) melts, the wheel turns. Those equal hours are both a blessing and a curse. You balance it or you do not. But as surely as spring comes you go on.
