I’M MOVING ON
There is a saying which goes “It is what it is”. Some people use it as kind of a mantra to accept the situation, understanding they can’t change the situation but they can change their response and actions. Others loath it!
I’m pleased to report that I am part of the first group, mind you, it took me some time to get there. When I was younger, I would get consumed by the moment and overwhelmed with self-pity….. I felt so trapped. Having become involved with personal development for nearly 10 years, I learnt that the situation was not happening to me but indeed happening for me. There was a lesson in there somewhere, enter COVID-19.
We are barely a month into a level of enforced isolation never before seen in my lifetime. Businesses closed, mass unemployment and emotional stress off the charts. Much has been written and said about the virus, its origins and the endless amount of conspiracy theories but it doesn’t matter what your view is, it is what it is. As individuals, we can’t change the situation. We can certainly do our part to reduce the spread and hopefully get back to normal (whatever that will look like) sooner rather than later, but what we can do and what we have control over are our actions and thoughts in light of the circumstances.
To that end, I’m moving on! The last few weeks, my content has been about and revolved around the COVID-19 crisis we are all facing. It’s all been positive content regularly emphasising that this crisis WILL end, we don’t know when, but it will end. So for me now, my content will get back to my purpose and core message, and that is that improved communication skills will improve every area of your life. That’s not to say I’ll be like the ostrich with my head in the sand but I want and need to get back to delivering content that provides value for my readers and viewers for now and for later.
For now? I hear you say. Yes, for now!
And so, my valued reader, I’m moving on but all for the better. I hope you enjoy my content, tips and hints to help you become a better speaker, presenter and communicator for you, your loved ones, your friends and your future employer or business venture you undertake
