March 20th was the official first day of spring. Say what?! Is the weather playing some kind of joke on us? Because looking out my window, I don’t see any signs of spring, whatsoever. I’m gripping my coffee mug a little extra long to keep my hands warm.
Every day I hear at least one person complaining about the weather. It’s like one of those things you just blurt out when you can’t think of anything else to say. “Ugh, this weather! I’m sick of it.”
Yeah… I think we’re all still suffering from that good ol’ winter blues. Thinking about it, it’s crazy how something as simple as the weather can affect one’s mood so much. But for real. Aren’t you desperate to feel the sun on your skin, to leave your winter coat in the dusty closet right where it belongs, and to people-watch in the park while sipping on iced coffee?
Admittedly, I’m drifting off a little just thinking about it. While staring at the ocean sunset view on my screen. Busted.
It’s all we can do, really. But in the meantime, let’s enjoy the few things we do like about the cold, like snuggling up to our dog/boyfriend/roommate with a cup of tea, watching Netflix all day without having to feel guilty. And while we anticipate the actual arrival of spring, let’s remind ourselves: all great things are worth waiting for, as they say.
