Day 1 – In like a lion, Out like a lamb

The saying goes that March comes in like lion and goes out like a lamb. The actual origin of this phrase was in reference to the constellations of Leo (the lion) and Aries (the lamb or ram0. Leo is the rising sign at the start of March and Aries comes in at the end. Today we equate this phrase with weather. March comes in colder with stronger weather and by the end of the the month the weather is warm and gentle.

This will be how I am going to approach this new month. As we start March and are heading towards spring, I want to start of strong like the lion. In order to be successful, I have to set clear, attainable goals for myself. I find (as I am sure everyone does) is that if I do not write it down, it won’t happen. Heck…sometimes even when I write it down, it doesn’t happen. So I am putting this out there for all to see.

Here are my goals for March:

  1. Write every day. This Slice of Life challenge will help me to attain this goal.

2. Drink at least 64 ounces of water. I carry around a large water bottle every day. But I need to actually drink it…LOL! I am hoping that without my mask, I will be better.

3. Show gratitude every day. It’s important that I let people know how much I appreciate them and the things they do.

4. Try to keep a sense of calm. There are 70 more days of school. The weather will get nicer. There is more daylight. So I just need to take more breaths.

So far the lion’s roar is strong and I have checked off each goal today.

  1. I almost wrote about this phrase too and then left it in drafts for tomorrow! Mine is going to be kind of the opposite, thinking about if the world around me is a lamb and/or lion… I like how you applied it to yourself instead! Looks like you have a great plan to help yourself be a strong lion this month! ❤
