I’ve always felt strangely towards March. It seems to lie on the cusp of two emotional states: despair, as the winter drags on, and hope, as Spring starts to pop up here and there. These dreary, cold days are really draining me now; I can’t wait til it’s warmer and sunnier. There are small signs that the seasons are shifting, though – it’s no longer fully dark when I leave in the morning and get home from work. For those little changes, I am grateful.
After a couple of flat months, I feel like I’m back on track with my lunar intentions. With the solar eclipse and New Moon in Pisces, I feel ready to seek out and embrace positive changes. So, here I go!
| Follow my heart
The older I’ve grown, the less I feel like I let my heart rule my decisions. I’m a big believer in trusting your gut, but there are certain situations where I try to think more strategically, and often what I really want gets lost in the mix. This month and going forward, I’m going to try to let my instincts preside over my choices a little more; I’m good at knowing what I want, and it usually just takes asking myself a few questions to figure it out.
| Be grateful for my lot
I’ve been dreaming big recently; grotesquely, impossibly big. Big dreams are great but the dreariness of these first couple months of the year have meant I’ve gotten a bit carried away with wishing some parts of my life were different. There’s no harm in striving for positive change, but while I try to seek better, I want to still love what I have. I heard a quote recently along the lines of “Love the life you have, while you create the life of your dreams.” It stuck with me, and that’s the approach I want to enforce in my own life.
| Start a new writing project
Recently, I finished writing a short story – it was the first piece of fiction I’d finished writing in well over a year, and I’m so proud of myself! With this win under my belt, I want to keep the momentum going. I’ve bookmarked a couple of submission opportunities which sound interesting, so we’ll see where they take me.
What are your intentions for March?
