The Longest Day of the Year

As a child, I have fond memories of playing outside on the longest day of the year, the summer solstice. I remember the joy of running up and down the alleyways behind the houses of the close-knit neighborhood in Brooklyn, NY where I grew up on the day when it took FOREVER for the streetlights to come on. 

This feeling of freedom and joy that came with playing outside on the first day of the summer season are unforgettable. It was a time of magic and wonder, a time when anything seemed possible.

Now, as I mature mindfully, I understand that the summer solstice holds a special significance energetically and spiritually. It marks a time of peak energy and light, a time to celebrate growth, abundance, and the fullness of life. It is a powerful time to connect with nature, to honor the sun and its life-giving energy, and to tap into our own inner light.

I encourage you all to embrace your inner child on this day and every day. Take time to play, to laugh, to explore the world around you with a sense of wonder and curiosity. Nurture that spark of joy and creativity that lives within each of us, and let it shine brightly on this special day. Do you have any childhood memories of playing outside on the longest day of the year? Please share them in the comments below!

One of the ways you can experience child-like wonder is though traveling. Travel encourages new and unfamiliar experiences, sparking curiosity and a sense of adventure. It rekindles the excitement of discovery as you encounter diverse cultures, landscapes, and ways of life, reminiscent of the boundless curiosity of childhood. I invite you to travel with me and experience the magic of Morocco next spring; come play with the Grown Ass Mamas!

May the summer solstice bring you renewed energy, inspiration, and a deep connection to the magic of life!!

With light and lots of love,
