How Do Your Butterflies Fly?

I watched it yesterday,


lightly settling on the lavender, shyly showing me its beauty.

A welcome breeze lifted its wings for a few seconds before it perched again, ignoring me.

Without warning, the lavender trembled as the breeze increased.

It fluttered and danced, higher and higher, before flying away.

I gazed into the summer sky, into the space where it had been,

and smiled…

This blog is evolving. 

I’m finding my ‘voice’.

As you know, I  wrote an On-line Confidence Workshop on a forum in Woman & Home magazine at the beginning of this year.  The positive feedback encouraged me to start my blog,  focusing on the need for some of us to be more confident.

I had butterflies…

I’m sure it won’t have escaped your notice that I’ve decided to change the name of my blog.  The new title, ‘Positive Spin’, encapsulates the way I view life events and leads me to find  confidence clues in unexpected places.  I hope you will enjoy sharing with me as I write about ‘noticing the small stuff’, looking for that Positive Spin that can make all the difference to our confidence and self-esteem.

When I began I had butterflies.

Now I believe they’re beginning to fly in formation.
