In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was within me an invincible summer. 

Albert Camus 

To prove that winter is upon us, I thought it only necessary to add in a quote about forming icicles and slushy walks. Winter is here people so lets not forget it. At the end of a long day, you might want to go home to take a really long nap. But now that winter is here, you get home and you realize slowly that you need to break out the shovels and plow your driveway into submission before even stepping foot into your nice warm house. 

That sounding familiar? 

Cappachino, anyone?

Truth is, winter makes me nervous. It makes me think of all the time we have to spend getting from one place to another because everyone is so slow that they can’t move past 5 miles an hour. I get it. No one wants to be in an accident when you could be at home safe shovelling the frost infested driveway. But the fact of the matter is that winter, means slow. 

It means bears are hibernating. And people wish they were hibernating. Or flocking south for the winter like snowbirds. Get it? Cause those people are actually called…oh never mind. 

Winter is a beautiful thing though. It’s sparkly and white and fluffy, like shiny pillows sitting on our beds. Yeah, I’m not sure what that means either. Moving on. 

It’s a wonderland made for times like these, when Christmas is ever drawing near. Look, I know some of you are sitting there crying to yourselves because you aren’t sure of what winter will bring you this year. I can hear your sad little tears so just dry them right up and listen for a moment, okay? 

Because even though it looks like winter outside, summer is still living in your memory. It’s still blooming and heating up and waiting for when all that slushy stuff melts so it can become your reality again. You just have to believe in it.

Somewhere inside of you, summer is there. So find it, grab onto it like the reigns of a horse drawn sleigh and drive right through winter. 

I know you can do it 🙂
