Happy Winter Solstice

Today marks the shortest day of the year, where darkness engulfs the light. 
Various traditions invite us to shine light into the darkness by stringing colored lights and lighting candles. Similarly, we can invite light as love and joy into our hearts by shining an internal light into our shadowy parts and consciously releasing our own darkness. As lightness makes it's way back into the darkness, the days get brighter, lives lighten, and we can shine our light in all we do. 
I like to play music, dance, and do yoga to chase away the shadows and invite back the light. What do you do to lighten when you're feeling the darkness?

  1. For me, walking outside is key. That, and taking pictures, seeing a life perspective through the camera lens. Happy Solstice to you!

    I clicked over from Colette's, enjoyed browsing here.
