On Snow


As I mentioned on Tuesday, I was lucky enough to wake up to snow. Unfortunately I had to go into school because there wasn't enough snow for it to be a snow day but, had I not gone I probably wouldn't have ventured outside into the snow at all, so in a way it was a silver lining. And, although seeing snow from your window is beautiful, it's nowhere near as stunning as walking through it and taking it all in.

I suppose it sounds silly that frozen water falling and settling in white flakes can brighten someone's morning, doesn't it? I, for one, have never been all that wowed by nature, but snow just 'does it' for me. Walking to the bus stop on Tuesday morning I felt so calm and peaceful and happy to start the day. Which, let me tell you, isn't the usual occurrence leaving my house at 7:30am on a weekday!

The snow just made everything beautiful, and in turn, that made me appreciate everything around me. Instead of spending the bus journey on my phone or with my head in a book as usual, I spent it looking out the window and admiring how the snow affected everything and how happier everybody seemed because of it, or maybe that was just me.

There's no doubt about it, I am definitely a snow person. I know that it can be rather annoying after a few days when it turns to slosh and limits your travelling, but there's nothing quite like waking up to snow to bring you back to the present and make you appreciate everything around you. Or, at least, that's what I found on Tuesday morning.
