Positively Facing the Winter Blues, Face 17

Winter Blues Becky

Becky, at first believed she had the winter blues. But upon deep contemplation, she began to wonder if it was in fact the winter blues.  When she is doing her art, she feels energetic and motivated, but when it comes to doing other things that she has to do, like work, she feels bluh, unmotivated and unappreciated, and down right ready for a change.

 Her world is not completely blue, her house is purple because she is happy there. It is a place where she feels free to explore and try new things. Purple for Becky stands for hope, comfort, happiness and freedom.

Becky is positively pondering possibilities and knows that it is time to find her wings and take the leap to make some changes. Hmmm, where will her wings carry her?

It could be the winter blues, it could be her age, it could be her need for keeping things fresh and new, it could be her need to learn and try new things and feel like she is accomplishing something, it could be an earlier scare with her husband's health.  Hopefully these will shake her up to snap her out of her rut and seize the day.

It is said, "Seek and you shall find."  Now that it has been stated, the wheels are in motion...who knows what she will find...I bet it will be more than the winter blues that she will find!

Becky's eyes overflowed
