Winter Solstice

winter-solstice-2016

Today, December 21st 2016, marks this years Winter Solstice. In Mallorca, the longest night is a very rainy one and I’m looking forward to the days getting longer, the sun climbing higher in the sky.

I did a little investigating. What exactly IS this solstice stuff and what I found was pretty interesting. It’s a time for new growth and renewal. Time of letting go, releasing old patterns, rekindling hope, welcoming the light, seeking new inspiration and beginning a new cycle.

Take the day or the rest of the days of December to acknowledge what you need to let go of, how would you like to grow in the coming year, how do you want to live in the coming year. Not easy questions. I will do some soul searching myself. Happy Winter Solstice.
