I heard this week that we were half way through winter and I paused to reflect on this. I have the feeling at the moment that winter will never end. Getting up in dark mornings, not seeing the sun and a general feeling of greyness that seems to be there day after day.
Winter in Denmark this year is very grey. So far we have had very little snow and very few of the beautiful cold winter blue skies. There is more light now than around Christmas but it feels like a continual succession of grey days. The craving for sunshine grows and I know that just as we feel we cannot stand the winter any more, spring will arrive.
This last month I have felt very inward - reflecting, working hard, spending time alone, resting, spending a lot less time online. Normally I love to write and share what is going on in my life. Recently I feel I have made some big shifts that I have needed to process them before being able to share.
I love this quote by Albert Camus. I feel like this at the moment. I am coming out of the winter a different and stronger person. I am more focused, more structured, clearer on what I want and don't want.
In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer.
Next month, we will be welcoming spring. The wonderful magic of nature as we shift into a season of growth and more light.
I will share with you the steps I am taking and changes I have made to my life over the next few weeks and you can follow my journey into spring.
