Today is winter solstice and trending all over is a photo of a young girl twirling amongst the snowflakes. That photo takes us back to a carefree time in our young lives when nothing, including a few flakes could stop us from having a fun-filled day.
These days, most of us Leftat50’s are probably not snow-twirlers. Perhaps we need to put an end to that!
Winter Solstice is the shortest day of the year. Ironic that it comes during the time we have the most to do. Who says Mother Nature doesn’t have a sense of humor?
It seems no matter how long or short a day is, the trivialities of “Life Stuff” keep us from taking the significant actions we need to create change. To start the life that’s been twirling in our heads for so long.
When we were stuck in the awful relationship, we no doubt had fleeting thoughts of escape. And with those thoughts came the inherent fears. How can we end this? Where would we go? What to do with all of our material possessions that seemed as though they would fill ten miles worth of boxes?
Of course, when these things actually had to be dealt with, the reality of it was nowhere near our worst-case scenarios. It’s okay not to trust our catastrophic fantasies anymore. It’s not healthy for us.
Let’s toss our worry-seeds into the winter solstice wind, trusting they will grow into exactly what’s needed to nourish our souls. Our own personal “Soul-Stice.”
Mother nature is painting a beautiful picture for us with sky full of stars and it’s time to stop and be. Just be.
We all go through major life transitions when relationships end… Through this website, I will share my thoughts as I walk the path of “New-Self” discovery. It doesn’t matter which side of 50 you are on. The real question is, Are you ready to live life? To forge a Path of Your Own Making (For a change!)? Then stop dwelling over the What-Might-Have-Beens and join me. Share your thoughts here, comment on mine, and let’s do this together!
