A Tribute to the Sun

I feel like most people are suffering from SAD. It's a real thing. Seriously, I have been in the doldrums all winter, and every time I think it is over, I cry a little inside because I wake up to snow the next day. Case in point... In the last week I was running in shorts and a t-shirt. I was very excited for my run on Saturday (yesterday) until I looked at the weather. 39 degrees and chance of snow. We started the run and got through 6 miles and then it started pouring and started getting colder, and colder, and colder. As I was driving home from my friend's house last night, ice started falling from the sky, and then I woke up to snow on the ground this morning AND had to scrape my windows.


So upon further review of the weather forecast this week (I don't know why I bother), I found that the sun is officially going to appear. It surprised me today when it finally poured over me giving me a little taste of natural vitamin D.

So, this impacts my exercise, which impacts my mind, which impacts my eating, which impacts my desire to exercise, which impacts my mind, which impacts... I think you get the point. It is a vicious cycle. But in true Sarah fashion I continued to evaluate my attitude about the weather. I can often be heard saying, just because the last few things have been bad, doesn't mean the next thing has to be bad. With that said, I am experiencing that with the weather. Just because I got my hopes up 100 times this winter, I didn't give up totally and in turn am being rewarded with THE SUN!!!!!!!!

Forecast for tomorrow? 63 and mostly sunny. I think the weather gods are finally blessing me!!!

So to welcome the sun back into our lives, here is a little song by a little band that you may have heard of:

Here Comes The Sun - The Beatles

  1. OK I just finished reading February & March blogs...... I'm impressed with your creativity (cat tower). I'm happy for the support of your friends and family. I cried over Dukie and his slobbery kisses. And finally, I enjoyed singing along with "Here Comes the Sun." So happy the sun is showing its face a little more these days. Mom
