yes, this greening world: thank you


the greening of the world around me

makes me feel like anything is possible

makes me feel giddy and calm all at once

makes me feel like the world is good again

the greening of the world around me

reminds me that the long winter is over.

I could wish that I didn't detest the end of winter, but that would be a lie. That wouldn't be embracing my need for green growing things. That wouldn't be embracing my inner need for warmth.

I could wish that I wasn't a different person when it is deep winter, but that would be wishing myself different. And I won't do that anymore. I am who I am. I can do things that don't make me happy. I can live through winter. I am strong and I am willing to be here because I need to be. I do not have to like it. I do need to help myself get through it (thank goodness for swants and ski clothes and essential oil sprays).

And I can spend the warm months soaking in the sun, soaking in the warmth and loving it all. And so I will.
