Today we celebrate the winter solstice as the northern hemisphere heralds in the shortest day. A special moment in the earth’s annual cycle, it gives us the opportunity to take time to reflect on past events and future possibilities.

No one knows for certain what the coming year will bring, but we do have a choice; we can either allow ourselves to be overwhelmed by the events of the past or accept, let go and move forward.

Acceptance of what we have no control over is strength. Move on, be prepared to explore, commit to, and work towards new possibilities that the coming year ahead will bring.

Today is also very special to me as it would have been my mum’s 92nd birthday. Happy birthday Joyce! xxx
