Over the years life has taught me many lessons but one of the most valuable was about friendship. I have on my life journey met some really amazing friends but in reality and on social media networks.
The lesson I have learnt is that not all friendships are meant to last forever till I am old and grey. Some of these friendships believe or not have expirey dates and we should try and keep those that have expired.
People come into our lives for a reason or a season and once the lesson has been learnt they leave,but us as humans try and hold onto the person and ask questions and beg for that friendship.Over time I have learnt these lessons wisely and now if these friends decide it time to go I thank them for helping me on my journey with valuable lessons and say ciao.
But on the flipside some of the most amazing humans ever have enriched my life , held my hand and stayed through every storm and rainbow.
The lesson is learning to let go if its past its expirey date……
Winter is my favourite season. I love this season as it brings images of fireplaces, hot chocolate and snow.
I dont like extreme heat so hence Winter is for me.Since experiencing a proper change of seasons and Winter I fell more in love with this season. I love the fact that you can actually dress up, full make up, hair done and not worry about the heat damaging your hardwork.
Winter clothing is so playful and fab colours all the deep rich tones. Boots, scarves, hats and coats ooh such choices.
Winter brings yummy food treats in every home from cakes, pies, stews, spicy crab curry, samoosas and lots of warm drinks. Generally one tends to put on a little more weight during these months.We tend to snack more and look for comfort food.
My favourite winter moments where in London waking up to snowflakes falling and the sky so light. Walking to work as there were no buses running and then seeing the paw prints of foxes and birds in the snow totally breathtaking. I recall fondly standing at the window with a dear friend Travis watching snowflakes fall, just silence between us while sipping piping hot cups of tea to warm us. Such a blissful moment taking in the beauty around us. Later on that day, I had my first snow fight with my friends it was awesome, we instantly became kids running around throwing snowballs at each other and making snow angels.
For me winter also has a romantic notion of cuddling by the fireplace, in a log cabin sipping Mulled wine. Winter is associated in my mind with Christmas.
I love Winter no doubt about that……. Mother Nature, I waited with bated breath to welcome Winter with open arms and recall all my wonderful memories…..
