The most wonderful time…
… of the year is when?
I am a summer person so I should say summer, shouldn’t I?
But there are days in winter I like as well so here I already have a tiny problem to define my most wonderful time.
And if I think further I gave birth to my son in spring, so this time would be supposed to be mine.
Our wedding in August, we are going on summer vacation in August as well, August has long warm summer evenings and we wake up because the bright summer sun is lighting up the bedroom.
What about the golden September days, the end of the summer where we enjoy the still warm sunshine.
In October the first real autumn days are approaching us. Leaves are falling and make funny sounds when we walk through the park.
In November I’ve been born, winter is slowly showing us its face. Nights are starting to be colder and the air in the morning already smells snowy.
In December we like the snowflakes dancing through the cold air, the kitchen is warm and we start to bake Christmas cookies and look forward to spend the Christmas days with family and friends.
In January a new year just begun. We feel as if we have a million possibilities of things we can do throughout that year, we plan, we hope, we look forward to what it has in store for us.
In February my parents have their birthdays and a snowy Phase often starts before we will see the first signs of spring. We settle slowly into the still new year and wait for the warmth to return.
In March the spring feeling hits us, we drink coffee again outside, still in warm jackets but the outside season starts after we were inside for a long cold winter.
In April some days can we really warm already. Our son was born and lights up our life each second since. My sister and best friend are also having their birthdays in April.
In May everything blooms, this time of the year is so wonderful, I start to hear people outside in the evenings and this “life” in the city raises my mood. Almost everyone seems to smile because the dark days are over for a good while.
June is always my busy month to plan our summer vacation. I know there are early booking advantages but somehow I am the last (very last) minute person. However, we spent great summer holidays so far so it doesn’t seem to be too bad.
July is packed with sunshine. We try to spend as much time outside as possible and enjoy this summer atmosphere in the city.
Vacation time starts mid August and ends always with my husbands birthday followed by our wedding anniversary ❤️
So now, how should I decide which time of the year I like most?
If I would ask my son he would answer NOW, simply because he does not have this time feeling yet. If he wants something he wants it directly, not in 5 minutes and surely not tomorrow or next month or even year.
He lives NOW and this is one of the biggest lessons he teaches me day in and day out.
Now is the best time of the year, now is the best time of our life, now is all that matters.
Everything I do now will influence my tomorrow so if I complain the whole day long I may think the next day that I wasted a whole day for nothing, which will make me mad again – this is a vicious circle, it draws me into a life of complaining.
But if I cherish what I have and start to make the best out of even the darkest moments, then I wake up the next day and I will be grateful for what I have.
Be here now and love your life the way you want to – we only have this one!
Much love to you, you are in the most wonderful time of the year now, tomorrow and every day after!
