Your personal roadmap

I saw masses of green bluebell shoots poking up in the woods this morning plus we’ve had a week of fair weather. Spring is definitely coming…isn’t it?!

I can’t help noticing the parallels with this week’s announcement here in the UK for a roadmap out of lockdown.

Regardless of how things unfold, things are changing (again!) from 8th March. As someone who works with women in transition, one thing I know is that transitions are icky!

Completing the year powerfully

It’s easy, and understandable, to just want want this year to be over, to cross everything and hope that next year will be different.😳🤞

In so doing, might you be missing the opportunity to acknowledge and feel good about yourself? Also, to let go of ways of habits that no longer serve you? What we resist persists and all that!

Over the next couple of weeks, in our family, we’ll reflect gently on the year that was.
