📅 Thought for today:
‘Life doesn’t get easier or more forgiving, we get stronger and more resilient.’

As the end of all lockdown restrictions seems to be in sight in the UK, so a new wave of anxiety is rising.
Returning to unrestricted public mingling with no facemask is triggering real anxiety and fear.
I have felt some of it myself.
I have to say I have enjoyed some aspects of being isolated and working from home for fifteen months.
So the thought of going to a shop or pub with lots of other people, with no mask and despite being fully vaccinated does not fill me with joy, it fills me with dread.
I miss friends, contacts, business colleagues and until this weekend, family contact.
I reflect on how we all have become more resilient in our own way in this year of lockdown.
We are stronger, we are more resilient, and we can overcome our anxieties and get back to spending time with people.
However, we will each do this at our own rate and should factor that in with the people you know.
What is their preferred rate to return to life somewhat as it was?
