Project 52 weeks is back thanks to The Equinox!
Yesterday as I was waiting to cross the street, a single leaf fell in front of me. It fell gracefully, and gingerly as if it were in a movie. I looked up at a tree it fell from. It was green with a patch of orange and it reminded me that it’s time for change. With the first day of Autumn, I decided to get back engaged with you all to see this writing project through.
I owe you some posts!
What’s an Equinox anyway? What’s the difference between an Equinox and a Solstice?
Equinoxes and Solstices are phenomenons that happen because the earth tilts.
- Equinox is the day when daytime and night are about the same duration because neither the North Pole or the South Pole is tilted towards the sun.
- Solstice is when one of the poles are pointed towards the sun, so that the sun reaches its highest or lowest point in the sky. You’ll either get the longest day or the shortest day.
False Start followed by a Fall Start
Now let’s talk about False Starts. I know a lot about them in life. Thankfully, unlike Olympic sports, the consequences aren’t as bad.
Take this blog. Life bubbles up, I get busy, and it’s tough to get to a new post every week. It drops off every once in awhile but I feel that true failure comes by not trying again.
But what does this mean to my life you ask?
Well reader, think about the earth’s tilt and what it means to live in the north or south part of the earth. It gives us four seasons. Every Equinox and every Solstice is a chance to begin anew. I challenge all of my readers to recall something that they have previously taken a false start on, and to give it another go. Reset your intention. Try again.
Push aside beating yourself up. Stop listening to the voice in your head that says that you can’t do it. Try hard to find other voice in your head. The kind voice that says that maybe you can.
Every season is a new, natural opportunity to try again.
