Taking time out

During the renovation work we are doing on our new house we found a fire fighter toy figure stuck behind a radiator. He had clearly been there for a very long time with only an odd sock and a lot of dust for company! Many weeks of tier 3 Covid-19 lockdown followed by an announcement of a national lockdown had sent us a little stir crazy so we decided to take our new housemate on a tour of the local sights. This was a very silly bit of fun but we had a great time looking for photo opportunities. For a little while we forgot our everyday problems, as well as the unfinished pile of work we had left at home, and just had some fun. We got some funny looks but it was a great reminder that sometimes you need to take time out for yourself and be just a little crazy. Not only does it add some fun to the day but it can be a great way to revitalise your energy and thinking.

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?
