It’s snowing, y’all.
It started out as just a few flurries, but now it’s really coming down outside my bedroom window. Fall is over, winter is coming, and there’s nothing we can do to stop it – the seasons must change.
Life is pretty similar, ya know? As much as we may want to remain in one season of our lives, there is no “pause” button to keep the future from approaching. We just have to go with the flow, and when winter comes, we must pull out our warm clothes to face it. We can equip ourselves with the necessary things to help us brave the new seasons in our lives, as well as the changing of the weather.
I love winter because of everything that comes with it. Most people criticize winter because it brings cold weather, snow, and ice, but I prefer to focus on the nice and cozy things this season offers. Lets make a list, shall we?
- Sweatpants, sweatshirts, sweaters, wool socks, fuzzy socks, and warm clothes in general.
- Fireplaces being lit
- Hot chocolate with lots of marshmallows
- Christmas break
- Good books
- Blankets and pillows
- Crocheting hats, mittens, scarves, and other things for my loved ones
- Going to sleep and waking up with a lovely blanket of snow on the ground
- Movie marathons
- Writing stories
- Holiday music
- Cozy pajamas
- Christmas lights
- Pine-scented candles
- Building snowmen
- Baking treats
- Evergreen trees clothed with snow
- Snow boots
- Building blanket forts and having sleepovers in them with your siblings
- Messy bun hats
We may be approaching new seasons in our lives as winter is coming, but even if the big picture is cold and unpleasant, there are always little things to bring us joy amidst the snow and ice. These things provide comfort while helping us face the season ahead. And just like winter, this new season will pass and give way to spring – a time of blooming and growth. But while we wait for spring, we have everything we need to brave the weather and embrace winter while it lasts.
So let’s admire the snow before it melts.
