So it’s officially that time of year and there’s no denyin’ it – not in the UK anyway, it’s FREEZING right now!!!
That’s right – it’s WINTER! (HOW fast did this year go by the way? But that’s another post entirely!)
And what’s not to love? There’s less FOMO for a start – I mean, WHO wants to be out all the time in minus degree weather? I’ll happily take the warm and cosy nights in, fluffy blankets, hot chocolate, or even mulled wine (mmm!) instead. Winter is amazing.
Having said all of that, when winter first hits it makes me feel kind of…sad. Just in the initial few weeks. I think it’s just that there’s so much darkness all of a sudden – we go from the having longest, brightest days and so much sunlight in the summer to hardly any in the winter. It’s a lot to adjust to.
That’s why for this month’s Mini Monthly, I’ve rounded up 20 uplifting quotes I love. If you’re feeling the winter blues right now, I hope that these will give you a positive boost.
