Let's Fly!

Another year ends and a new one starts. Sometimes we all need fresh starts and new beginnings and a new year is as good a time to reflect on this as any other. By chance I found this video clip of a garden toy we used to have in our old house. I used to be able to see it from our kitchen window and it always made me smile as it seemed a physical representation of fun and positivity. I also kept a copy on my computer desktop as a mental prompt to not take life too seriously. This year I have no new year resolution as such but after having randomly found this I have put it back on my desktop. There have been a few life challenges over the last couple of years and this clip will help remind me to reframe some of my thoughts and to seek out fun and positivity even during challenging times. 

This month's free download to prompt reflection

What do you see?

How can the clip be used as a metaphor for something that is happening in your life (good or bad)? 

What does it spark inside you in terms of seeing a new way forward you had not previously considered?

Let me know how you used the image julie@julieboyd.co.uk
