So this is the last day of the year. How are you feeling? I’m a little trepidatious. I mean, I have never hated a number before. But 2020 is the worst number ever invented. Nothing but a big wad of Suck in my opinion. But I’m not feeling too confident about next year, if I’m honest. And I think some of you may share this feeling. Now, I’m not trying to get you down. Who knows? This year could bring a lot of good things! So for this post, I’m going to focus on those possibilities instead of the scary ones. I’m not one for resolutions. I think they are a bad idea, generally. But I am one for setting S.M.A.R.T. goals and I am also a fan of self improvement. Check out my post that covers these special goals here because today we are going to talk about personal growth.
Hello dear readers, and Happy Halloween! May your hearts be merry and your candy buckets overflow! Today is a special holiday for me and my fellow pagans everywhere because today marks the last of the “light” half of the year and the beginning of the “dark” half. This has to do with the amount of sun we get per day, not positive and negative. The night that falls between October 31st and November 1st is celebrated in the USA by dressing up and knocking on strangers’ doors to beg for candy. But it wasn’t always about that, and to some of us, it still isn’t. Yes, I take my son trick-or-treating on Halloween. But I also keep him home from school if it is a school day because we have far too much to celebrate on this, the day of the ancient fire festival, Samhain.
