I know that I’m not as wound up as I was at the first of the calendar year. In fact, I’m kind of amazed at how calm I usually am these days. I don’t seem to be fazed by the thoughtless and cruel things people say and do like I used to be. Don’t get me wrong. I still think it is wrong for people to be insensitive and boorish; I still want to put them in their place. However, since being sick I, somehow, have learned to pick the times and places better for anything I say of this nature.
Hot and cold don’t seem to be bothering me like it used to, which I think is freakish. This time last year I had the air conditioning running. Just this last January I had the furnace running. Yet, once I was over the illnesses this past March, I haven’t had either the furnace or a/c on. Sure, March is a little warmer than February or January but it was only in the fifties during the day. Recently the temperature has been reaching the low 80s here. Yes, in states where the humidity is low, this is still a comfortable temperature. However, here in Tennessee, where the air is loaded with moisture, people are urged to not be in the sun long when the temperature reached 80. Despite all that, I sit here comfortable with just a fan running overhead.
I don’t believe in horoscopes, although I do believe when, during the year, a person is born can shape how they react to things in their lives. Albeit, when I took a gander at my horoscope last Friday that is part of an app I have, I must say I was a little bewildered.
Virgo Horoscope, May 11, 2018
Your ideas about life are going through some radical changes. None of the givens that you’ve taken for granted apply any more. Rather than lament the changes, grow from them. So don’t drag your feet! Stand up and move ahead. This is no time for a vacation. You have some rebuilding to do. ~The Free Dictionary
Even the rebuilding part fits me. I’m absorbed in a rewrite [rebuild] of a manuscript.
Now I wonder if the summer is going to be different too. Will these warmer months be more productive for me in contrast to how it’s been in prior years? Will serenity still be my norm instead of fluster and anxiety?
Something has changed, that I know. I just can’t put my finger on what it is.
