Nothing wakes me feel more alive than cold water. It's a rush I am addicted to and while I am traveling in the colder months I always make it a point to jump into freezing cold water. A swift reminder that I am more than alive. Today I walked around my neighborhood and felt the cold again, it felt good but it's a sting that reminds me how easily we take summer for granted, how easily we take life for granted. Today was a good day. Stay positive, Winter isn't the end of the world it's a time to celebrate with family and friends, and to remember the warmer months when things are easier.
