This year was hectic. The dark part of last year was full of danger, sadness, fear, and pain.The light part of the year has been full of change, from both forces beyond my control and from within myself, and anxiety. I have learned a lot this year about myself, and the value of what I have has shone brightly. I have seen some of the places in which I need to grow, and although the light months were stressful, they were rewarding and incredibly fruitful in the way of self-improvement, growth opportunities, and abundance.
The equinox is a time of balance, and for that I am grateful. I am taking today to reflect upon the value these light months have had for me, and the many gifts the universe has given to me. I am most grateful for the new perspective I have gained - I know why I am where I am, I know I am where I need to be, I know what I need to do. After spending over a year of my life feeling lost and often times hopeless, it is refreshing to feel the firm ground of my decisions under my feet once again.
For the first time in a long time, I am truly looking forward to the dark months. I feel a calmness coming, one I look forward to greatly. Dark months have always been quite trying for me, as I suffer seasonal depression, but I think I will be able to be stronger through them this year. I am looking forward to the lessons the dark has for me, and the stillness I sense in the nearing future. I am also looking forward to the thinning Veil, and being able to celebrate with my past loved ones more vibrantly.
This equinox, I celebrate this perfect balance of worlds - light and dark, life and death, sun and moon, growth and stillness - and look to the darkness with new eyes. These Dark months will be different! I can use my "toolbox" of life in a new, strong way, and I have many loved ones protecting me on both sides of the Veil.
Tonight, I will go out into the slightly bitter, truly autumn night with my thoughts humble and thankful, my spirits uplifted and at peace, and gifts for the loved ones and guardians who have helped me through this groundbreaking year.
Have a wonderful equinox! :cheers:
