Will the next six weeks be a tunnel to get through or a bridge to a better you?

TUNNEL VISION OR BRIDGE THINKING? 🤔

There’s a difference between going TO something and going THROUGH something. If we’re not careful, this whole thing could become a tunnel, and we’ll miss all. we could learn on the way.

When you’re asking yourself if you’re making a difference, remember that the tip of the iceberg is all you see

Never measure the fruit of your labours or the impact of your life only by what you see. Because what you see is only the tip of the iceberg.

The hamster and the covid test 🐹

Ok, so this isn’t one of my proudest parenting moments. But I’m going to share it because no doubt most of us all have to go through this rigmarole at some point in the next few months, and as well as being mildly amusing (only in hindsight, I assure you), let this be a warning not to promise rewards in the moment you aren’t willing to deliver on; you may regret it.

The struggle is real, but what will we let it bring out in us?

The struggle is real, but what will this crisis bring out in you and me? A flame of judgment, or a blaze of compassion?
