The 2014 Summer Solstice was yesterday, longest daylight day of the year, the astronomical seasonal transition from spring to summer, et al. It will only get darker for the next six months. Cheerful thought eh.
Way back in December/January, many if not most made New Years resolutions. Hows that working out for you? Me, not so good. Yes, there have been a half dozen or so pounds lost, other poor habits persist. The best intentions of exercise have withered into stagnation.
What IF there were more bifurcation points in the calendar year? There are many to choose from. Celestially, there are two equinoxes paired with two solstices. Birthdays, anniversaries, national holidays, Hallmark holidays, et al.
Why not use these days for personal reflection and resolution renewal? Doing this challenges the easy denial of waiting until the next new year.
My 2014 Summer Solstice resolutions are simple.
1. Be Kind
2. Live healthier by eating less & exercising more
3. Fiscal Thriftiness
4. Read, write & think daily
There, that ought to keep me centered until my next selected bifurcation point.
The world is round and the place which may seem like the end may also be the beginning.
