Winter can be a time for blissful hibernation. Recent snow and ice here in NJ has forced people inside, off the roads, and home from work.
Looking outside my window the other night, I marveled at the quiet streets, and glimmering village beyond. I thought how amazing it was to have so many people inside all at the same time.
Though I’m certainly no fan of the dangers and damage that accompany the swirling snow and ice — I cherish the time inside. It’s a time to cozy up by the fire with a pile of good books. A time to create a pot of hearty soup, and keep it simmering on the stove. Or, a pan of roasted root vegetable, fragrant and delicious.
Most of all, for me, it’s a time to go deeply within. When I allow myself to embrace winter’s quiet stillness, I bring myself back to center.
Times of hibernation can help us focus on our inner spaces. It’s a chance to see what’s really going on. An opportunity to transform what’s ready to change. Winter’s quiet stillness, when we allow it, brings us back to center. Fueling our inner power, we prepare ourselves for Spring.
