How Are We Feeling?

Strange times are upon us. It is hard to know how to react, isn’t it? Personally, I am trying to look for the positives in the whole situation, remain active, and keep my moods under control. That last one is not always easy, just ask my poor wife. So I have got to find some way to cope with this lockdown. Working from home has always been my dream, but it’s a bit different when the whole family is there too, and you are restricted in your movements in the outside world.

Is fun really to be had?
Yet I feel fierce
This is duty
For love and family
My tour ends soon
Will I have to return?
Or can I be free?

Confusion Reigns : Blog

Getting priorities right is a difficult thing when you have too many commitments, interests and intentions. Sometimes those thoughts competing for attention just cause a battle which cannot be won. What to do when they all seem to have a similar weight?

Sometimes it’s best to just take a holiday, just a short trip away from your brain. Forget about those conflicts and just put them to one side. Make your priority your sanity and then maybe when you return your clarity may have returned. Then you will be able to see the way forward.
