It's a day to reflect and to look forward.
It's very good day.
Every year, on the Solstice, I make lists. I like making lists. They give me a sense of purpose... and accomplishment... and direction.
My Solstice Lists are as follows:
- Things I'm thankful for
- Things I need to let go of
- Things I want for others
- Things I'd like to happen in the coming year
I put a lot of thought into them... a lot of care. They're detailed and specific... and general and sweeping.
After I'm sure I've gotten everything down I need to get down, I burn them. I send everything -- all my thanks, my fears, my hopes, and my wishes -- out and up to the heavens, to the Universe.
I've been told they're prayers... and maybe they are.
I'm OK with that.
In the end, I feel good -- less burdened, less hurried, less worried.
It's a very good day.
Happy Solstice, everyone! May your welcoming back of the sun leave you less burdened, less hurried, and less worried! XO
