Every winter, I don’t realize how much the darkness and weather affects me until the beginnings of spring and sunshine seep into my skin and I can definitely feel the transition. Of course, it’s usually paired with a major adjustment to my sleeping patterns. Which is to say that my sleep and patterns go to shit until I can adjust to the longer days.
I've been thinking a lot about what a big role the space I'm in plays in my sense of comfort and competency lately as well. I think it's worth prioritizing! "When a place feels like my own, I feel a comfort in being myself" resonates deeply.
Ugh watched half of the fifth episode of Queen Charlotte and hit pause. Will finish it off in one sitting when I have time to fully devote to it.
