As the days get shorter and the days colder, we start to feel the Winter approaching. I am someone who loves the sun and as soon as it starts to loose its warmth I start to feel such loss and wish it had been a longer Summer!
This year though I am going to take my lead from nature and turn my energy inwards. As the leaves turn, the trees give one final burst of beauty and then they rest for the Winter. Many of us feel we have already had a long rest with lockdown but the reality is many of us are overwrought and tired from the anxiety of the last 6 months.
So seeing Winter not as a fallow time but as a time for regeneration and healing might help us as we move through to the end of a very difficult year.
