The Winds of Change are Beginning to Blow….

Ah… the uneasiness of February is beginning to wane, and once again, I feel somewhat normal as we blast into the month of March. I don’t remember all the verses of the old wives' tale, but there’s something about “in like a lion and out like a lamb” that applies to the roar of the March winds and the change they bring to the weather and, quite often, my mood. This year is proving to be no different. I feel the shift. I feel the change. And quite frankly, I’m truly ready for whatever may be blowing my way.

I’ve been working on a new project, nothing at all related to my writing, and I’m ready for spring to bring a change to the work environment. Good, bad, or otherwise. I’m crossing my fingers and hoping for the best. Time will be telling us soon which way this path will lead me.

Of course, the optimist in me always looks for good changes while seldom contemplating the negative. Sometimes, that’s a curse as well as a blessing. The jury is still out on this one, but the day of reckoning is slowly approaching. We shall see….

But, back to the writing and the very reason for this blog. I’ve been quite stymied in the writing department for a couple of years now. Sometimes writers and authors go through a dry spell. Mine has lasted longer than most, but I think I sense a change within myself…maybe the spellbound writer who has for almost a decade been enamored with Jo and Gina is about to make another appearance. I can only stay the course on this ride of life and see where the winds blow me next.

That’s the most consistent thing about me: the inconsistency. Stability has never been my strong suit; the need for change and changing scenery is often disguised as “adaptability” (which many value as a welcome attribute), but after looking closely for at least the last two decades, I’ve realized that it’s more of a fault than an attribute. I’ve also discovered after watching myself for so many years, that it’s not likely to change any time soon.

I’ve learned to embrace the woman of change and roll with the flow, always looking for the silver lining in each situation. Perhaps the sunny outlook and the optimistic attitude are the most lasting pieces of the writer, woman, and entrepreneur that I am.

Well, as I read back over this month’s blog, I can see one recurring theme and in my almost 6 decades of life, I instantly recognize that spring is coming soon…the restlessness within me is pinging around like a ricocheting bullet in a metal room. Ideas, feelings, and visions are bouncing around everywhere!

I’m going to bring this spring-fever-influenced blog to a close, and wish you all a wonderfully loud, roaring March!

Stay tuned for the next blog – I have some big news coming in April!
