Is it?

I fought the winter for years! Then I gave in and just complained alot. Now I like to embrace what I can. I’ve made a truce. My fighting and running and complaining and, yes, whining about the cold weather did not serve as a shield to keep me safe and warm. All of that behavior just consumed me with thoughts about the cold. It kept me down.

How does a truce manifest?

For me it was a reframing. What could I effectively change about my circumstances: a super warm (although ugly) sleeping bag of a coat; better (even uglier) boots; and sometimes an unlimited metrocard.

What else could I change? Well, no amount of my New York whine could stop the cold-just the invitations! So I set out to reframe my nemesis as a wonderland of loveliness. This is not the same as lying. In fact it is the opposite. It is finding truths that existed all along, but that I was blind to due to my preconceptions.

A practice FOR SURE.

It has been many years now that I have been casting my winter wonderland spell. I still whine-its New York baby! But this practice has definitely made facing the long dark much more manageable and dare I say …

Wishing you all the most wonderful of winter wonderlands!

Light, Love, Magic, and Peace!!!

Be well.
