It’s the summer solstice and wow, summer most definitely is here! it’s hot hot hot in the uk!
I love the summer solstice, I think it’s such a magical day. In days gone by I would be marking it by spending the night at Stone Henge or packing for Glastonbury, some years we would sit on at the seafront with a fire on the evening of the solstice and burn our fears in the fire, or send out wishes off into the summer sky, sadly this year I am doing none of those things but I thought I’d mark the occasion with a happy list of all the things I am grateful for on this years longest day….
☀️I have so many awesome people in my life, friends, family, I’m constantly overwhelmed by how many people I want to spend time with and how little time there is for them all, isn’t that a wonderful problem to have?
☀️I am able to look on the positive side of life most of the time, for some people seeing things positively is almost impossible at times, (I have those times and and then too) but being able to see things positively is a huge gift and one I’m unbelievably thankful for.
☀️The Sun! We brits are wilting in our heatwave at the moment and I’m such a sun wimp that I’m seeking out constant shade but at the same time I’m so grateful for all that vitamin D and seratonin making me feel all chilled out and like anything is possible
☀️Music – playing in my ears, making me feel like I’m somewhere else, taking me back to different places in time, filtering memories and love into my brain
☀️I have more emotional and mental strength than I ever thought possible and I hope it continues to grow
☀️I have developed really good self awareness which helps me continue to develop emotionally and helps me think more rationally.
☀️I may find me job as dull as dishwater but it does sustain us financially, we’re always broke because I’m a shopaholic, but actually when we’re sensible with money we do have what we need
☀️creativity – leaving the theatre has made me realise what a creative and imaginative person I am and I feel really lucky to see the world through these eyes 👀
What do you feel grateful for today?
Happy solstice everyone!
