But this year, I decided something. I decided that instead of being completely miserable for an entire winter, I was going to embrace it! Of course it had to end up being the coldest winter in 30 years, but I still embraced it! While others were complaining about the cold (non-stop it seemed!), I was making sure that I was bundled up at all times, wearing my snuggie in my car, and looking for good things about the winter! I ended up with this list. Most of them are silly, but the point is, that I have enjoyed this winter so much more than I usually do! And that is because looking for the good in things will always make you happier!
So here is my "7 Reasons Why Winter is Awesome!"
1. I left a cup of milk in my car the other day.
It stayed in my car for almost two weeks. And it didn't smell! And even better, after two weeks of being in my car, the cup inevitably fell out of my cup-holder, but because it was frozen into a solid chunk of ice, it didn't spill all over my carpet! Yaaay!
One reason I don't like winter is because coats always hide my fabulous outfits. So I decided that I just need to get fabulous looking coats! Problem solved!
This is one of my favorites! I loooove being by myself. During the summer you can't hide away in your house, or people start to wonder if you're ok, but do the same thing in winter (and add snuggly sweatpants!), and it's fine! Yessssssss! Fuzzy sweatpants, fuzzy socks, netflix, and crafting all winter for me please!
Ugg Boots, Combat Boots, Converse Boots, Fur Boots, Knee high boots, Hooker Boots, Herman Munster Boots, Moon Boots, oh yes, I looooove my Boots!
And just leave them in my car until I get home 7 hours later! I just did this the other day, and it made me sooo thankful for winter! Especially because I work at night, and grocery stores are closed by the time I get done!
(or at least not as often!) All you girls can relate with me on this one!
7. Once summer finally does show up, I am so grateful for it!
And all because of winter! When winter is ending, it's like magic! I have forgotten what it's actually like to be warm, and the whole process of re-juvination, and new life, and new warmness, is just absolutely MAGIC! None of that would be possible without winter!!!
Peace Love and Winter
