I was staying pretty strong through the Darkness this year, but it finally started to get to me after this week from hell. The snow is beautiful and the holidays are nice, but I am very susceptible to the Darkness' negativity. I believe I need to work on harnessing the Dark, and using it to process emotions and calm chaos - I do not know how to utilize the stillness of the Dark, only how to react with the absence of Light. I think some more outdoor activities will help me this winter... how can one connect to a season if one stays in the house, cooped up all winter? If anyone has suggestions on dealing with the Darkness in a positive way, I will gladly hear them!
