We changed the clocks today. Outside of Christmas and the last day of school, this day may be my favorite of the year. Yes, I lost sleep, but who cares?! I am tired but happy. I need to move to a place that has sunshine nearly every day of the year.
When I was younger, the time change never bothered me. I barely noticed. My energy level was near constant and unaffected by most outside forces. But as I’ve gotten older I’ve realized sunshine = good mood and energy for me.
This is one of many things I’ve inherited from my father. In January I basically want to never climb out of my bed. I am a walking zombie by 5 pm. But then the time changes and there’s more daylight and I feel as if I’ve been reborn.
So welcome Spring! Welcome sunshine! Welcome energy! Welcome more pleasant moods! You’re right on time!
