When snow falls on your cheek, think not of the cold and how winter sends you shivering and sick and solitary. Think of sunshine, and beaches, and playing in the sand. Think of hot chocolate warm in your hand. Visualize a spectacle of colours, like fireworks, ablaze in the sky. Hear the birds chirp. Smell the roses. Walk without the fear of sliding. Quiver in delight. Bundle up with joy. Cause it’s not the season that puts people down, it is people. We define what keeps us cold and frozen. So when snow falls on your cheek, think of love. Think of books, of movies, of dancing, of music, of food, of family, of God, of belief, of passion, of dreams, of whatever… Think of you.
