Being a triumph of hope over experience and other related matters…..

A current situation that had already run into difficulties has turned from treacle into molasses but it holds a number of ‘flags’ and hidden messages and I think the trick is to keep moving forward and learn how to read them.

No matter how things appear on the surface it is helpful to keep your perspective, remain calm, take the next step and keep thinking your way forward. There are other ‘keys’ though that grease the wheels of motion; drop your voice and keep it calm when others call and they have simply got lost in emotion as it helps them to breath and get their balance back, be clear in communication, be kind (always kind) and treat everyone as you would wish to be treated. There are deeper messages too and for one I am going to use the word ‘never’. I usually shy away from using that word, but it is necessary sometimes, so……never, ever kick someone when they are down. They feel bad enough as it is and everyone is doing the best they can at any given moment and taking the opportunity to dive in when they are down is unkind and unhelpful. To give it a humorous angle take heed as they could also bounce back and bite you on the bum when they recover!!

We all have a powerhouse of stored experience, memories and contacts within us, so pause and let your thoughts roam as the answer, the one person you need to contact or a route forward could well be in your head.

Hold hope and love in your heart and keep moving forward, be kind to yourself and rest as often as possible, it doesn’t mean you are neglecting your responsibilities it simply means you are looking after yourself. We need to look after ourselves so we are able to take care of others.
