Recently I have heard a lot of my friends, members, and people around me talk about how sick of the weather they are. It has been a very cold winter for many states this season, but I haven’t been terribly plagued by it and I believe it is because I got mentally prepared.
My husband and I relocated from Los Angeles to South Dakota, and while it has been nothing but sunny days and heat waves in LA it has been below freezing and snow all around here; and I would not have it any other way.
The grass is not always greener on the other side. Yes, it was wonderful to have great weather all the time but there are a lot of other circumstances that come into play that people forget to take into account. While the weather is nice you always have to sit in LOTS of traffic and deal with LOTS of people all the time that also enjoy the weather. In South Dakota the weather is not always the best but you have a wonderful supportive community, sometimes it is just nice to have to stop and smell the roses. When you have a snow day and you literally can’t do anything it is a great way to recharge and allow your body to take a day!
Here is a great bunch of quotes to focus on when you get those Winter blues!
It is all in how you approach it! If you know it is literally just a season and embrace it, the weather just doesn’t feel as bad!
With each new day becomes one day closer to spring :]
