About this point in the winter, many of us are dreaming of warm weather. While a warm weather escape can certainly help, we have to find creative ways to enjoy this season. I promised myself not to spend the winter wishing it away. Instead, I would embrace the opportunities it holds. You may question just what opportunities – but have you ever spent the afternoon in the snow and came into hot chocolate? If it’s been too many years to count than I encourage you to spend even a few moments enjoying the great outdoors. A brisk walk, filling a birdfeeder – whatever it is, find a way to connect with the outdoors. And, certainly it’s a wonderful time to embrace the great indoors as well! Have a hobby you’re behind on? What about the indoor project you’ve been putting off? It’s the perfect time to tackle it. Need a special retreat? A time to relax and rejuvenate? A short time away can really do wonders for the soul. Wishing you a perfectly happy winter.
