Winter To Prepare for Work Ahead
In the context of healing from trauma or brokenness, "winter" is waiting time. Positive personal moratorium. You may use this season to set schedules, resources, and supports to have time and space for your needs as well as goals. The "winter" of personal recovery lets you repair and put important things together, settle in, and get ready for growth.
Indeed, it's not "winter" forever! There is a next season. But, in order for a full harvest to take place next season, you need to adapt to and use your "winter" time in the context of the personal struggles you are currently experiencing. Keep working, keep repairing, keep making a way.
