It’s the shortest day of the year. Make the most of it!

Today, Tuesday, December 21, 2021 is the winter solstice.  Here in the northern hemisphere, we experience the fewest daylight hours of the year within this 24-hour period.

For those of us who love the winter and long nights, today is very special and we must savor it.

For those who loathe winter and miss daylight, today is very special for you, too, because tomorrow the days will start to get longer – and the nights shorter.

No matter which group you fit into – or maybe, you’re a little bit of both – today is a gift like every other, so don’t just rush through it.

Embrace the challenges. Cherish the moments. And make each second count.

When we face each day with gratitude and accept it for the gift that it is, our perspective shifts.  We can find magic in the most simple and mundane of tasks. Be mindful and be present.

Make time to celebrate the solstice – and celebrate the day!
