Winter Solstice 2018 - Seasons of Renewal
As the year is coming to an end I am reflecting even more on all of the different experiences and lessons of 2018. Tonight I was scrolling through social media because I finally have an hour to myself now that the kiddos are asleep (hahahahaha —- mama woes)! I am inspired by so many different content makers and the encouragement they are constantly pumping out via video, manifestation quotes, photos etc. Winter Solstice is not something I usually acknowledge consciously while living in the moments of the grind but, today it stood out to me more than ever before and well,….I felt compelled to write about it!
This week was quite hellish when it came to foraging and it has made my direction clear as to where I will be in the next 3 years regardless of how uncertain the journey may be prior to reaching this destination:) I have learned so much in these last (almost) 3 years about myself, the world and I do not believe I have scratched the surface just yet…..but I will;)
The fact of the matter is Winter Solstice is upon us and as an avid Forager of food this time of year is quite challenging in New England. However, It is a reminder of the beauty of nature and its’ amazing provisions to our mind, body, spirit..... and just LIFE overall. Metaphorically it is a cleansing in prep for new beginnings. Hence maintaining gratitude for all of the harvest past, present and future is key to not only nature’s survival but also our own. The Earth provides natural unaltered nourishment......as I forage through New England for fulfillment of this blessing I am constantly reminded of how the seasons are the similes to the different cycles in our lives.....each season brings a lesson and an opportunity for renewal/growth.
No matter the trials or tribulations in life we have to remember that we do not have control over the plan that God/Universe has prepared BUT we do have control over how we respond during our seasons.
Happy Winter Solstice 2018 and wishes of positive vibrations, abundance and favor in all areas of your life️!
