For the past 6 years I’ve had myself hunkered down in Colorado after spending the previous 14 years living in Boulder City/Las Vegas Nevada. The difference in the weather is pretty freakin dramatic. Summers in Vegas ~110* compared to summers in Colorado being ~90*. Winters in Vegas being ~50* and winters in Colorado ~too cold. So, I’ve had this issue since moving here, every fall I’m hit with this dread of winter, a dread of cold weather. I just couldn’t stand shoveling snow and being wet and cold even though bundled up in fleece. I spiral. I just plain go into a mild depression from November till February. Thats a long time. Too long.
Well… Last fall some changes came about along with the cold weather kicking in. Because of some major health scares I had realized that life is too beautiful to waste away during the winter because “Thats how I am” “This is what I do every winter” “Wah wah, I’m a cry baby.” The selfishness in that hit me across the face and I became so much more grateful for life, for opposites. If there wasn’t the cold, I wouldn’t love the warm sun as much as I do.
Point being here… Reach for a different perspective. Life is good. Love is eternal. God created all these things for a reason. Lets enjoy it all:)
