The turning of the year always begins a process of reflection and renewal. It’s an opportunity to think about what is good in our lives, and how much we have to be grateful for. It’s also offers a space to reflect on our hopes and aspirations for the seasons that lie ahead, things we want to do, or how we want to be. Although I really know at one level that happiness is a lot to do with how we respond to events and situations as well as those things themselves, its hard not to just react with emotion, or give out a pre-programmed habitual response. So I’m going to try to be a bit more centred and mindful this year and try to ride out what occurs with greater grace. We’ll see!!!
Anyway – it was hard not to react with awe as this little beauty of a long tailed tit came up to say hello to the fatballs.
