If you were a firework, what kind of firework would you be right now? A strong and solid roman candle? An erratic catherine wheel whizzing around at 100mph? An explosive rocket? A sparkler that needs to be handled with care? Would you be noisy or silent? Colourful or monotone? How quickly would you run out of pazzaz and sparkle? How long would you stay ‘hot’ and dangerous for? Would you have some difficulty igniting?

Take some time to think about your mood right now, and how this firework represents you, your emotional needs and the internal and external challenges that you are currently facing. Is this the firework that you want to be and are contented to be, or does this signify a need for change? What is it that needs to change in order for you to feel good?
