Spring Equinox/ Summer Solstice: In Remembrance

 

 

Spring Equinox/ Summer Solstice: In Remembrance 

 

     My spring has been blooming. I have been an uprooted flower in another location in hopes of prospering or continuing where I detached myself from my natural talents. This Spring I was able to clear the unwanted weeds from my soul's garden. I allowed myself to feel deep within my natal, to heal my chiron, to be delicate with my how I feel and my connection to the world around me. 

     I would be modestly lying to myself and you as a reader if I wrote that my Spring has been peaches and cream. I was shaken by not acknowledging and displaying my abilities to those I wanted to behold as a friend. Starting a new chapter in my journey and being my authentic self, entirely with all the life lessons and experiences - in a sense mentioning that I graduated and outgrew many of what I was around. 

"A prophet is not without honor except in their own town." - Mark 6:4

      Traveling mostly my home country has allowed me to sample many of the diverse and intricate take of what makes life enriched with culture, beauty and how the people are intertwined as one. I knew that I didn't want to be the archetype of the big fish in a small pond by allowing myself to become comfortable.

     

 

Spring Equinox/ Summer Solstice: In Remembrance

I knew that I didn't want to be the archetype of the big fish in a small pond by allowing myself to become comfortable with what I already knew instead allowing that to become a foundation. Spring equinox was a tree allowing its branches to reach the sun, feeling its warmth and digesting its nutrients.

   Today is the first sign of Summer Solstice and it had already began with a kick! On my spare time I plan on enjoying plenty of nature, lots of music festivals, short and long travels, trying new restaurants and finishing a long waited mixtape that even I am calmly holding my breath for... okay, I just exhaled :). 

   I don't know what this season has in store for me or how my well being will be. But I decided to take the chance of full visibility, learning to integrate my old self with who I am today. I'd like to remember that life is always blindfolded or in the dark. And the walker has a candle, or a voice guiding them through. 

And I continue to walk.
