Have you noticed it? The days getting longer? It seems like just last week it was dark when I went into work and dark when I left (which I find very depressing). Then all of a sudden I noticed that it wasn’t the case. There aren’t rays of sunshine, but it’s light out! Hallelujah, I’ll take it! In the middle of winter, it’s important to find the bright spots, the little gifts, the happy miracles.
This week, I am celebrating the fact that we have reached the mid-point. We are just as close to Spring as we are away from Autumn and it just so happens that there are 333 days left in 2017. This is a special number for me, so I’m taking notice!
To celebrate, I’m lighting a candle, thinking spring thoughts and reading about the history of Imbolc, Ground Hogs day and St. Brigid’s day. These are all holidays about light, rebirth and new beginnings; perfect for a day of planning, goal setting and some early spring cleaning.
I invite you to take a moment today to light a candle and think about what you want to create this year. Write it down, meditate on it, set goals around it and make great things happen! Every day is a new beginning!
