The summer solstice is such a joy – the time when we receive the most sunlight and have the longest day (yay – you know I love my summer time!). In thinking about the light shining on us more, it really represents a time to step back, breathe, and allow the nourishing Sun to surround us.
It is also a time to allow ourselves to relax more, to look at the sky and take in the gifts of light and nature. There are beautiful moments right in front of us – if we accept them. The Light is there to nurture us. In stepping back a bit and taking care of ourselves, we can also gently nurture others. Self-love first so we then can have that wonderful energy to give without depleting ourselves.
Take this time to create wonderful happy memories in spite of what is going on in the world around us. Take a moment to create even just one little thing today that will make you, and those you love, happy. Smile, sing, flourish, blossom, and just Be. Nature is doing the same – follow her example!
