Beyond things like a month long stay in Texas (pure work) and you know, life…I’ve been neglectful of the OBN. For that, I apologize.
Here’s a bit of an admission…every year I struggle keeping focused and forward moving during the small space of time between Winter and Spring.
To be honest, this year the transition has really demotivated me from just about everything I usually enjoy.
I often wonder how other people, especially outdoor people who hate being stuck indoors throughout the winter, are feeling this time of the year.
With old sayings like Cabin Fever, Spring Fever, Stir Crazy, Winter Blues, etc, etc out there, I know I’m not the first one to feel the blahs at the tail end of Winter.
I take daily walks and currently my quest is finding tiny little signs of Spring outside. The above photo I got the other day was my first proof here in Idaho that the tide is turning and life is renewing in view. It gave me a huge smile.
I’d love to get the wheels turning back on here at the OBN and I’m working on some ideas that will prevent ‘quiet times’ in the future.
In the meantime, I’d love it if everyone would share their thoughts on keeping uplifted during the Winter/Spring transition.
And….if you’ve captured any signs of Spring photos lately and posted them on your blog, I’d love to see them! I bet others would love to see them as well, so share the link to your post below:
Spring is Coming!!
