Sometimes our lives fail: sudden illness, death of a loved one, divorce, job loss – all this can derail us. Catherine May went through her own “winter” period: her husband fell ill, her son stopped attending school, and health problems forced her to leave work. This is an insightful story that offers us ways to take care of ourselves and recover during the winter. Moreover, sporadic severe winters are beneficial. We need to stop perceiving these periods of our lives as something meaningless, a nervous breakdown, a lack of willpower. Do not try to ignore or reject them. They are real and ask us for something. We must learn to invite winter. Let us spend the winter not of our own choice, but we can choose how to do it.
