Today is the darkest day of the year. It is a day for reflection, rest, and deep inner work. I like to take time on the winter solstice to look back at the year behind me and start to welcome in the new light of the year ahead. 2013, much like today was a bit dark for me. My career is starting to flourish but there has been challenges and now change happening in my personal life. I am ready to let go of this dark night so that I can truly start to shine in 2014. I have a long road ahead of me but it will be a road of self-discovery, and self-care that I am really needing and looking forward to. Take a couple of minutes tonight and go outside and say your words of gratitude to the universe. It is a powerful night, honor it and yourself. What new light will you be bringing forth in 2014?
