It’s the winter solstice today, which means we’ve made it through the hard part. Sure, January may be long and full of toxic smog, but we’re going to have more light. I’ve been walking more (10,000 steps every day) and that’s really helped with the S.A.D. this year–but it’s still nice to know the darkest part is over.

According to the hippies, “A solstice is always a powerful time to release the past and to welcome and anchor in a new cycle complete with a new set of intentions, resolutions and goals.”  I’ve been thinking about what I didn’t do in 2017, how I can actually get it done in 2018, and what new things I want to try.

Some things I’ve been reading as I ponder:

Happy Solstice and good luck with your own plans.
