The days continue to grow shorter in the northern hemisphere. Nights are colder. Winter is only a few weeks away. It is a season where the north winds bite our face and turn our ears red. It is a season where snow will cover the ground and life enters a dormant stage. It is a season for reflecting on where we’re heading. If we’re not happy with our direction, we can think about where we want to go. It’s not by accident that spring follows winter and is filled with new life and hope. After this winter, a new spring awaits you. It’s still a way off, but it will come. Use winter to prepare for the new life that will arise in you.

    1. Hi Terveen, Winter, dark days, and hot drink, maybe some good music playing in the background, a good recipe for reflecting on where I am, where do I want to go, what will I do when I get there? It’s a chilly, cloudy, rainy day here. I think I’ll make a cup of hot tea, put some music on and see what happens. Enjoy the day and all it brings. Ray
