Blog Thoughts: See. Trust. Be
Winter is here. It is the hardest time of the year for me and countless others. How you frame it, is going to help you walk through it. It is just a season that will pass.
There is beauty where you least expect it if you pause to be with it, see it and embrace what it offers. It can be a time to reflect on your journey; what is frozen will soon thaw. What can you say in your life regards to this idea?
There are simple pleasures in winter where a cup of hot cider tastes better than any other day of the year; a moment to be aware of our senses and encourage us to do so in all things. Resting is a gift. When we rest, we are able to see, learn and essentially grow. In other times of the year, it is incredibly hard to do so; this forced stillness if offering you something. Can you see it?
The roar or soft crackling of a fire can be mesmerizing. Many local places will have fireplaces this time of year if you don't. Take a moment to marvel at the beauty; better yet build one in your backyard. There is no greater beauty of a fire under the stars and that cider will bring it to life!
While this time of year is challenging, no doubt. Find at least one bright spot as we make our way to the new year. Hold it. Be with it. Find gratitude; then share it with someone else who is having a hard time finding their bright spot today.
