As The Winter Solstice approaches ,and having hit Hermit Mode a few weeks ago. I've been in a reflective mood since .
Winter has always been pretty much a fav season of mine . I love how everything seem's to slow down and go "beneath" ready to come and shine in a few months after being still and replenished.
I love the "Grey days" where it is nondescript and you could gaze out and wonder at winter wonderland. The fading sun and gentle or torrential rain. The mists, fog, crisp air and the cold!
Yep LOVED it. It almost seems past tense.
Something's changed however? I miss the sun, I miss the blue sky's & I miss the warmth!
WTF? is going on! I look out now and feel a bit gloomy, where as once I would come alive with the winter energy. I'm cold and feeling it ? Which is quite bizarre to me. People used to think I was mad for loving winter( especially my husband) who craves the warmth.
There is a disorder called SAD ~ Seasonal affective disorder (SAD)
( Google it) that can affect people in winter or summer.
I'm still unsure what this shift may mean, but I'm going with it anyhow. Me a sun person? Ohh the horror of it all ! As I'm typing this : the sun has peaked his head around the clouds and I'm smiling. Maybe I'm developing a "sunny disposition" !!! Bah Ha! Yeah, that might help :)
