I don't know about you, but March has always been a kind of "blah" month for me. Growing up in New England, March was the "in-between" month, we weren't quite out of the gray winter weather, but Spring had yet to arrive. It always felt as though I was waiting for something, in some sort of holding pattern, which made it very hard to motivate myself to do anything new. I notice that this "blah" phenomenon isn't exclusive to states with seasons, as I have seen these attitudes in people here in Florida too. So how does one get a boost during such blah times? Sometimes it is the way we "frame" things that can make all the difference. I think these days are the perfect times to try something new, to push ourselves, to stir things up. What if instead of staying put, you looked to March as a time for renewal?
