Be like melting snow — wash yourself of yourself.
Looking through my kitchen window, watching the snow melt a dull headache pain throbbing since this morning. Embracing this state of in-between to the best of my abilities. Nature is showing me to accept and to just be. Rain and heavy winds have been instrumental in this change of weather.
I am getting my cues from the surrounding beauty I see just watching out. Breathing in and out slowly letting my worries melt away, the way the snow does in my backyard. I have often wondered about Winter, why I always feel so drained this time of the year. This year I am just learning to be, trying to embrace my circumstances and be at peace with it all.
Beauty is found everywhere, it’s just a matter of looking with a loving heart. As I am writing this, I understand how it applies to my word of the year’s choice. Simplicity has been in my heart for a while now and it will guide me through, one day at a time. The rain is keeping us company for the whole week and I know it will wash away most of my worries.
