Happy Summer Solstice (to Most)! 🌞
(And Happy Winter Solstice to Mali! ⛄)
To learn more about what this day means, I found an article I like. I enjoyed a lot of its ideas:
- The article describes the solstice as a time for reflection and, as it signifies the changing of the season, a time for new beginnings.
- In particular, the seasonal change of the summer solstice is marked by the peak of sunlight which symbolizes "the triumph of light over darkness in the individual."
- The author also writes that it is a time to slow down, saying "the seeds of spring have been planted... It's time to let nature take its course."
So, here's to reflecting and beginning again. Here's to also slowing down and allowing what we've already worked for to come to fruition. Here's to honoring our own light and sharing it with others.
