Solstice Has Passed! The Light is Returning!

Winter solstice has passed. THE LIGHT IS COMING BACK INTO THE WORLD, YOU GUYS!

Thank freaking goodness.

For one of my best friends and I, 2019 was a pretty volatile year. We decided to embrace the coming light and the change it can bring with a small ritual yesterday to let go of the dark and bring in the light.

Beforehand, I was actually afraid to do it. I was afraid because I started to reflect on the things I really want in the coming year and those longings are so deep it terrified me to give them a voice or a shape. After all, even if I fully recognize them and if I try to bring them in, they still might not come. And then what? I didn't know if I could handle that kind of heartbreak. But avoiding desire does not make it go away, hearts break whether or not you were ready for it, and courage is a thing. I did it.

It's still scary. It's hard to recognize and admit to our deepest longings. But hope is real and powerful, and if the light returning isn't a symbol of that, I don't know what is. Join me! Embrace the deeper longings that scare you and let's step into another year, shaky, but doing it!
