Yesterday was the single darkest day you will experience in your life due to the lunar eclipse that occurred on what was already the shortest day of the year.
And today is my favorite day of the year. Today the darkness will start to melt away and from now until the summer solstice, we will see more and more light. Spring is being ushered in, even on the first day of winter and darkest day of our lives.
Today I am reminded that our lives mirror nature.
I hope that even on our winter solstice kind of days, we can look ahead and see that inevitably things will start to brighten and spring is on its way.
People always say to live every day like it's your last. I do not believe that it's possible. We are all sucked in by the mundane; it's a part of life. But give your family an extra hug, say an extra 'I Love You!' and don't let the stress of the Holiday season take your focus away from the people and relationships you have. Some people won't have the opportunity to even take that time for granted this year.
