Winter Blues…

For anyone who is thinking about giving up because they have nothing to look forward to.

Winter is a horrible time to make decisions like this. Depression lies and winter just eggs it on. Wait. Just wait.

Wait for your first chance to head outside and go for a real walk, one with trees arching above you and flowers opening through the brilliant green grass.

Wait for that first gentle breeze. The one that drifts smoothly across your arms and wafts the smell of green and growing things past your nose.

Wait for the sound of tiny frogs peeping in the ponds and the singing of -spring birds. They aren’t quiet but every sound drips into your heart, relaxing it, telling you that all is right in this world.

Wait for every colour known appear in gardens and meadows. For bumbling bees to come out of hibernation and bobble along, wiggling and dancing into and around the flowers.

Wait for all of this to happen, then decide if you have anything to look forward to.
