There’s a total solar eclipse AND it’s the first day of school today. And if that ain’t reason to think about hitting the reset button, focusing on a fresh start, acknowledging the magic of beginning again, and recommitting to living a better, higher, more authentic life, then I don’t know what is.

Hello, friends. I’ve been gone from here for quite a while. Perhaps the longest blogging break since I started this space 6 and a half years ago. It was a completely unintentional break, and it was completely because of summer travels + summer fun, but it was also completely right.

So right that I am only popping in here today to give you a little solar eclipse greeting.

After today, I’m ducking back into my life for a few more days. My parents are still in Sweden, it’s the first day of school today after summer break, and we’ve got visitors coming this weekend after my parents have returned to the States. So, it’s still full speed ahead for Lina + me.

But, this eclipse tho. We can’t see it at all here in Sweden, which is super disappointing to me. And, yet, it’s ok. It is what it is. I’m reflecting on all of the effects of it anyway and joining my heart with the collective heart, as the viewing of the eclipse happens right over the States, probably right exactly where it should be in this time + space in history and in the world.

Whether we see it or not, it is happening. And, while it is a scientific marvel, if you just happen to be someone who also feels a great connection to nature + the cosmos, it’s an incredible day for the soul as well. But, I’ll have tons of reflections about the eclipse in a later post, because it’s got me really reflecting, thinking, and reevaluating my life.


So, today, as I head off to greet all of my new students on their first day of high school + jump back into my regular work day routines, I do so knowing that there is this great cosmic event occurring. Inspiring me, teaching me to slow down, to stay true, and giving me pause to never stop resetting + recreating the life that I feel called to live.

Oh, my dear wild ones, I wish you the deepest, most soul-filling eclipse blessings as we start a new phase in our global + individuals journeys to continuing to become our highest selves.

xoxo. liz.
