Three observations from flying a kite recently:
(1) A kite needs to be launched against the wind.
(2) The kite stays in the air as long as its head (/nose) is pointing upward. If its head points to the ground at any point, it will likely crash.
(3) The kite is most unstable as soon as it is launched. Once it reaches a certain height, it becomes easier to control it.
Lots of parallels to attempting something new in our lives.
