Cold

Can you find the warmth in the cold?

Hello again!

The past few days have been cold and we are only a few weeks into winter.

Some people like the cold and snowy weather but for me personally I can’t stand it. As I get older,  the more and more I just dislike it.

Some days it feels like you can’t put enough on to feel warm. When it snows, however, I will admit it looks pretty as it falls but then comes the aftermath.  Salt gets everywhere. As it starts to melt, it gets slushy and messy For a person who likes to where different shoes, the snow is just not the best thing for it.

Today it is snowing again and although I may feel how I feel about it,  there is something that seems very calming about it to me. It looks pure, clean and almost magical as its falling. Almost like a clean slate until you step in it of course.

While the temperatures have been quite cold, somehow something about it seems warm. Warm because as I think about it I’m alive. I am able to see, feel, hear, walk, something that perhaps some may not be able to do.

It’s amazing that although the temperatures may be cold and it may feel very cold, somehow warmth can be achieved.

The thought that comes to mind is this, if it’s possible to find warmth literally why can’t we find warmth figuratively?

At this time I think about those that may be going through something that may seem cold. Whatever the situation it may feel like it’s freezing, like you will never see the warmth, but just like winter comes and goes, so will the times of coldness come and go as well!

As the new year has started, maybe there have been things that have gone on that you wonder will they change? Maybe it’s a relationship that needs to be mended, perhaps within the family. Maybe it’s a job change that you’ve been fearing. Maybe it’s finally starting something that you’ve dreamed of starting. Maybe it’s your health or financial situations that you’ve been struggling with. We can probably go on and on.

Whatever it is, find the warmth in it because just like the snow will melt and warmer days are soon to come, so will things in life change. At the moment they may feel cold but hopefully in time and with effort, they too will get better and warm.

Thank you

Stay Warm!

2017

A year coming to an end

Hello again!

Today is the last day of this year! As it winds down I think of the next coming year.

I would say 2017 was a lot for me. Physically and emotionally.

I went through some changes in my personal life. Reconnected with old friends. Some helped me to see things differently. Some helped me to see that if I can’t be loved for who I am now than you shouldn’t love me when in your eyes I’ve become better.

I still have a lot of growing to do but I think that growth is a never-ending process. Personally, I’ve learned a lot about myself and the direction I want to go in. Some may agree some may not but for once I need to think about MeMe!

The one thing I’m excited about is that I started this blog. It has been an outlet for me. Going into 2018, I have some visions on where I want to take it and things I’d like to work on to make it and me grow. We never really know where things may lead us but one thing that I know is I can no longer live by FEAR.

I found this acronym for fear: (I do not take credit for this I found it through google)

F-Forget                      F-Face

E-Everything             E-Everything

A-And                         A-And

R-Run                         R-Rise

I must admit that I have always been the type to run and sometimes it is easier to do just that. However, by me doing just that I’ve gotten the same results. So however hard it may or will be, I have to choose the latter. I have to rise and face it. I may fall lots of times along the way but I must continue to get up. It is true some things are easier said than done but whether small or big steps the point is to keep taking them.

Some have said, well you don’t live by what you say and to them they are entitled to their opinion. What I do know is that I’ve taken some steps that for me were hard to take. I am a work in progress and I think it is safe to say that as a human race we all are!

Anyway, what are some goals you all would like for the next year? Remember, keep growing, keep learning but above all do it with a smile because after all a smile is the best accessory one can wear!

Tomorrow is the beginning of twelve new chapters, 365 new days. We get to write the story!

Thank you to those that keep pushing me and have supported me along the way!
