Embracing the Darkness

“It’s always darkest before the dawn.”

I love Winter. I love holing up and going inward. I love the soft, grey light that flows through my giant picture window. I love how it gets dark early(I know, you probably think I am crazy) and then the slow joy of Spring starts to show itself as the days get a tiny bit longer each week.

I love how dark winter can be. I love going in to my darkness and then emerging again with a new and better perspective. When that happens, I feel like I’ve slain a dragon and my confidence in myself and who I am as a human gets stronger and more in line with who I want to be.

Is any of this striking a chord? This feels like the perfect time of year to go there.

Above is my latest weekly painting.

I wish you all light and courage on your journey through life,

Love and peace,

Allison
