I don’t like winter. I’ve tried to change my mindset about winter. To find joy in the season. I haven’t been successful.
Spring and summer are my favorite time of year.
But, I’ve started to realize that I need to contrast of winter to fully enjoy spring and summer. I need to know that the days of sun and warmth are only around for so long.
I suspect that if summer were all year long, I would take that time for granted. I wouldn’t make plans to go on picnics or go kayaking. I wouldn’t get that thrill that I feel when I put on shorts for the first time in months.
Maybe one day I will learn to like winter. Until then, I’ll try to be content with knowing that this season increases my appreciation for the times of year that I truly enjoy.
