March Magnificence

“In like a lion, out like a lamb” is the phrase I’ve always heard about for the month of March. With climate change, the lions and lambs are having a rave or something. One day it’s snowing heavily, the next day it’s 40 and everything has melted.

A friend who moved to California to avoid the snow and ice in Rochester had snow today!  Absolutely bonkers. Weather is a wild card in the life game of Uno. 

I feel like life is happening to me this month, rather than me being a part of life. Some months are like this. I’m working to get better organized so I’m not running out of steam, and my PTSD is less invasive. I’m being more generous with myself and others. Some days, it’s really hard to do. 

What’s happening in your life?
