Living on the West Coast, we are often spoiled. We have mild weather all year round (mostly). Yes it rains a bit – but we are rewarded with loveliness just about everywhere. This winter, we have gotten a bit of snow. Not a ton of it -but definitely more than normal. Most of the people I know are ready for spring. Not me! I’m loving the snow – and here is why:
When spring comes, people tend to be more social, there are more events, the weather is better, we go outside and talk to our neighbours, go to the beach, and barbecues, and block parties. I like those things too – but Im happy to go to one event per season, not every weekend. I prefer to be alone. I need the rest. Just having a regular day exhausts me. Spending time with others does me in for about 2 weeks.
I think nature is feeling the same way. It needs a rest. Its exhausting being pretty and social all the time. Let the world recuperate for a bit. Stay home, build a snowman in your backyard, go ski if you love to be outdoors in this weather. There is much to do. There’s lots of time to get everything done that you need to do. Summer will be here eventually.
Let the world gets some rest. Hibernate just a little bit longer.
