Spring will be returning to one half of the globe in a few months, and as excited as most of us probably are for it, we’ll want to appreciate the here and now if our goal is to get the most out of the earthly experience.
Difficult things like winter are necessary in their own way, and we might as well embrace circumstances we’d rather not face instead of convincing ourselves they’re boogeymen we should avoid.
I’ve learned in the past few months that winter can be just as beautiful as spring, summer and fall, but it’s beautiful in a different way. Nobody really likes the cold temperatures, but without them, we wouldn’t get the photogenic snow we enjoy so much.
We’d miss out on a lot of great things if we didn’t have winter, and I almost feel bad for people in the south who hardy ever get to see snow, if at all.
They get to enjoy beautiful, sunny weather while the rest of us have to deal with harsh, uncomfortable temperatures, but they also miss out on some of the amazing and essential experiences winter offers.
I think winter’s meant to teach us certain lessons, and as always, we can only learn what it teaches if our eyes and ears are open. As long as we’re open to the lessons each season brings, we’ll get the most out of them and we’ll welcome each change of season with as much joy and enthusiasm as the last.
Do you enjoy every season?
Wes Annac 🙂
