Heart shaped surprise, New Paltz NY 

When the clocks change 

I change

The darkness nudges it's way into my mind

Pulling me down

Sucking the motivation out from inside me

And watches me struggle until the end of March

The winter is always a difficult time for me

I am going to try my hardest to be positive

and not let the darkness unveil it's


on my soul.  

I am going to seek out the beauty of what is around me

Taking note in what I am appreciative for

Pushing myself to smile more

And reaching out for a hug more often than I usually would

Today I am so grateful for:

* * No frost on my car this morning

* * The sun shining and the coldness staying away for the day

* * The thrill inside that arises when watching the NY Yankees

* * Lunch with a new friend

* * Finding something I have been looking for, for a long time

What are you grateful for today?
