One of THOSE Days!

Sometimes you go about your business and at some point in the day you wonder why you got out of bed!

As we have navigated the pandemic there have been a lot of people having THOSE kind of days … and despite my very optimistic nature, I have had a few myself!

Over the last 18 months or so we have been restricted in what we can do, many people lost their jobs, businesses went out of business and everyone has been stressed.

It is not over yet either! Vaccination rates, our only way to end this pandemic, have dropped off, we have seen third waves and the variants are killing younger people.

It is all very stressful and the stress is cumulative over time ... we let it build up!

So ... it is EXTRA important to be nice to yourself and to those around you!

"Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud."

Maya Angelou

Seek out those positive people who make you feel good … and don’t forget they need a boost sometimes too!

Take a few minutes to count your blessing and NOT focus on the negatives.

Remember that when the tough times end you will be a stronger person/company for working through it!

Apologies if you find this blog entry a little “preachy” … but EVERYONE has one of THOSE days sometime or other!

I write these articles with the intent of sharing MY experience and knowledge gained during MY life journey. From the 16 year old joining the Royal Navy, through many incarnations, to the grey haired guy who built a business. If you find a nugget here, then I am happy. If the message offends you then I apologise, that was never my intent. I know and recognize there are many people and groups who have a far bigger challenge than I have had and I only wish you well.
