August 24 – September 22

Life is often a series of roundabouts, cul-de-sacs, traffic lights and ring roads. Just when you think you are making progress, and you put your foot down, some temporary traffic lights appear as some unforeseen roadworks filling a pothole take up the path before you. It would be easy to feel frustrated at these seemingly random hold-ups, but when you take a step back to look at the bigger picture, these hold-ups really do only take up a tiny proportion of your life. Yet, they take centre stage because they thwart your progress and they irritate you. Therefore they grow in shape and form, and just like the monster in the wardrobe, they get bigger over time. It’s only when you step back and apply your usual common sense, that you see just how entrenched you’ve become in those minor irritations. As a result, you’ve lost sight of the magnificent roads you’ve travelled and forgotten about rather magical terrain you’ve seen. In other words, maybe it’s time to stop sweating the small stuff and to instead use those moments of pause to breathe deeply once again?

So, when you find yourself going around and around the roundabout or you find yourself sat at traffic lights, either metaphorically or literally, just take a few moments to take a deep breath rather than feel irritated you’re being held up or delayed. Life is never as straightforward or as clear-cut as we may like, but it becomes a choice as to whether or not we let this take over or whether we choose to see these obstacles merely as obstacles, and let it go. It’s time to look beyond the frustration in order to re-connect to your passion and to realise that all of these little hold-ups really haven’t thwarted your progress, it’s just your perception. So, take a deep breath and start to travel lightly once again…
