This week I have become somewhat engrossed (again) by the rising tide of COVID, the increase in people needing ICU beds and the fear that we won’t have enough – beds, people resources, people vaccinated – to stop the rising tide. Thoughts of “when will it all end” float in my head.
Our dreams are often filtered through what we think is possible for us to achieve. If we want more substantial dreams, and I do, we need to change the way we think about ourselves and about our capacity. We need to increase our tolerance for disappointment, uncertainty and discomfort. We also need to surround ourselves with the right people.
This week I’ve been made aware again that it’s often the small things that make the difference between feeling like things are going well and they’re not or feeling like you’re coping or you’re not.
