Solstice & the New Year
Celebrating the longest night knowing that after the night passes the light begins its journey back.
It’s ironic that the light starts coming back in the deepest, coldest of winter, when you want to hunker down, hibernate and keep warm. I always see it as a time of nourishment for the physical, psychological and spiritual. It’s a time of quiet: less doing, more inner work. It is a time of writing, of dreaming, of building ideas and strategies for the coming new year. What to do differently? What to do the same? What challenges do I set up for myself? What’s the game plan?
Living day in and day out without thought: days turn into weeks, weeks into months and months into years. Then its over. Take a step off your routine path and do it often! Re-invent yourself daily.
Plant seeds now so 2016 is a year of courageous new experiences, attainable challenges and a year well lived! Happy Solstice and a happy creative new year!
