In the depths of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer. Albert Camus, Awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature at the age of 44 in 1957.
Tomorrow, we celebrate the Winter Solstice—the longest night of the year. On Tuesday, we begin the slow crawl towards Spring.
For many, the months since the pandemic have been a sort of winter marked by isolation and inactivity. The distribution of vaccines is similar to what we will experience on Tuesday—the beginning of more light, yet, darkness still prevailing.
On top of all this, tomorrow night, (12/21/20) Jupiter and Saturn will align in the night sky in an event astronomers call the “great conjunction” — also referred to as the “Christmas Star” — marking the planets’ closest encounter in nearly 400 years.
What a year!
Affirmation: I celebrate the return of “light” in all it’s forms.
Coaching question: Have you found an “invincible summer” within you this year?
