I don’t know about you and people usually think I’m crazy but I love winter! Here, the cold has arrived. We have said goodbye to our very long summer and the trees are losing their leaves. It is fresh and crisp, I wake up in the early mornings and take deep breathes, I smell the air outside… winter is in the air and it smells glorious.
Winter is a time of fluffy blankets, warm drinks and cuddles. I prefer winter clothes, the layers, the wool… Winter may be harsh and difficult but I am blessed to find comfort indoors, wrapped in blankets, cuddling with my dogs.
Winter inspires me to ask myself difficult questions, find ways that I may grow and improve, going into the new spring months. I use the cold months to get to know myself again. I allow myself extra time and slow movement. I find winter the best time to write. To sit in a corner all warm and protected, going on grand adventures with characters in my book.
Then there’s reading, who doesn’t love curling up with a good book? The cold air coming in through the window, hot coffee in your hand while you read.
You may not agree but you have to admit there is something charming and intriguing about winter, the circle of life, death and rebirth. There is much to learn from winter.
Which season is your favorite?
Sending you all good vibes.
Until next time,
