Last month, I made a point of driving around the neighborhoods near me to look at the beautiful lights. There was something thrilling and offbeat about intentionally taking a long way home, slowly cruising neighborhood streets and admiring light displays of every configuration and color. The lights lifted my spirits. They gave me a sense of joy. They disrupted the darkness during the longest nights of the year.
As the holiday lights begin to disappear, how do we keep the light burning bright for ourselves as we begin 2018 and continue throughout the year?
(Here in Austin, Texas, we leave our outdoor twinkle lights on all year ‘round, so feel free to follow suit if that’s what makes you happy!)
How do we begin a new year with an abundance of light, joy, and positivity?
I quietly sat with this question and here’s what came to me ~
Say to yourself: As I embark on a new year and a new beginning, help me to align my heart to my highest self so that my path might show me the clearest way forward.
