"One kind word can warm three winter months"
- It is officially winter for me as today marks the first advent sunday and it snowed for the first time since October! Winter is finally really here :3
- I am receiving positive feedback from friends and family that I am getting better and looking healthier.
- I love my mom for telling me this quote today.
Regardless, for me, the 'three winter months' symbolizes my road through recovery and all the battles and hardships that I face along the way. Like winter, recovery is bitter, raw, arctic, and frosty - in other words, not pleasant. So hearing positive feedback and encouragement from others concerning my journey towards getting healthy and gaining my life back really does make the fight worthwhile. Upon receiving heartening and morale-boosting through just a few simple words, my world can be turned upside down, as I become joyful and ecstatic to know that everything I am dealing with is paying off.
As cliché as it is, you only live once, and it's up to each of us to make our life worth living.
