Glad Lucia! ✨🕯✨
Today, on this officially the darkest day of the year, swedes and some of their nearest neighbors are celebrating Lucia dagen, or Saint Lucy’s day ✨ a mix of pre-christian and catholic traditions, this festival of light is not only kicking off traditional Christmas festivities in Sweden, but also is a great opportunity to learn about Swedish culture for anyone living abroad - wherever you can find a Swedish embassy or other representatives, tonight will be held a little party with lots of beautiful songs and probably even some free drinks - highly recommend visiting 🥂some Q&As about Lucia is up in stories, don’t miss out ♥️#watchmystories
Сегодня самый темный день в году, когда воинам света явно не помешало бы подкрепление - и оно таки явилось в виде святой Люсии, праздник имени которой как раз и отмечается 13-го декабря шведами и им сочувствующими по всему миру ✨🕯✨ отличный, кстати, повод прикоснуться к культуре и непосредственно шведам для всех, у кого в городе есть посольство, консульство или другое представительство Швеции - вечер, наполненный чудесным пением, а иногда и не лишенный бесплатных напитков (!!) подходит для этой цели как нельзя лучше - очень советую посетить 🥂а чтобы не ударить в грязь никакими частями вашей славной личности - загляните в сториз, там сегодня мини-ликбез на тему этого милого праздника ♥️ волшебного вечера
On our roadtrip last month, I knew that time was not going to slow down for us. And of course, before we knew it, we were home again. It's true how they say that time feels as though it goes by faster the older we get.
I want to share an important lesson I learned one morning in my 10th grade English class. During a lesson our teacher stopped and asked us, "Do any of you take the time to stop and look around in your life?". I remeber it was still early and most of the class was either not paying attention or had no idea what she was going on about. She continued, "I mean, do any of you just stop whatever you're doing, maybe not physically, but more of a mental pause to really SEE your surroundings. Do you watch closely how the leaves on the trees catch the wind, or how sun light can cast shadows and dance all around us. You're all so young and don't realise just how fast time can slip by. The next time you're walking home, just take the time to pause, you'd be surprised what you'd find." I'm sure 90% of that class didn't absorb what she had said. I also don't think most 16 year olds felt that it was important to stop and smell the flowers more often, they've got more important things to do. But her words resonated with me and it's something that has stuck with me since that morning 12 years ago.
With that thought always present over the years, it has forced me see things more deeply through my journeys and try to have a greater connection to this earth and all the beings that inhabit it.
So, wether you are traveling, enjoying time with a friend, or simply out walking on a regular route. Take that moment and really SEE your surroundings and the people that fill your life. You'd be surprised what you'd find. And im sure, your soul will thank you for it.
