The Promise of April

Spring arrived in Northwest Oregon with a burst of sunshine this morning.  It lasted all of close to four hours before being overtaken with clouds.  However, my cat and I relished the sunlight as long as we could, thirsting on it as if it were water to a desert nomad.

Nevertheless, I like what promise April always brings.  New beginnings, flowers, budding leaves, and warmth.  The days get longer.  I feel inspired to do better and that fits in with my resolve to work on transforming myself into a positive person.  I want to let go of the negative diatribes my inner critic has been feeding me for way too long.

This month I have a few important appointments coming up.  I will find out what physical lifestyle changes I have to make.  Hyperthyroid, prediabetes, high cholestrol are the latest issues I must tackle.  Rolling up my sleeves, accepting that it is what it is, will help me get through.

And I hope April comes through also, with more much-needed sunshine to give us wet Oregonians a boost.
