Winter Solstice – My Favorite Day of the Year
The shortest day of the year is December 21st. Every year on this day, I breathe a sigh of relief because afterwards, the days start getting longer. We will begin to have more daylight. May be a false sense of reality, but I believe more daylight can disinfect the sadness, stress, anxiousness and the emotional toll of the past year. Recently someone asked me to share how I was feeling in five words. I ask each of you to take a moment to find your five words. Mine are, I feel hopeful, but cautious. I have asked others to share theirs, and some that really spoke to me are; concerned, optimistic, caring, busy, happy, connected, gratitude, weary, isolated, emotional – all have touched my own life this year. As the year ends, I want to say thank you for being a part of this journey. Not one we may have chosen, but a journey we have all traveled together. Hang in there. In the words of one of our newfound heroes, Dr. Anthony Fauci, “Help is on the Way”.
