I’ve been absent from the blogosphere due to a few blips in the preverbal road, some work related others personal. My biggest revelations from this time have been; Being mentally tough means (to me) taking big things and chunking them into smaller pieces making them easier to take — For example; eight weeks of an insane schedule of activities, can be viewed as one activity at a time. Lack of staffing might be seen as a creative scheduling challenge or an opportunity to mentor someone new into the role. A health concern should be followed through one step at a time without assuming any kind of outcome. I know this all seems to be a bit obscure without all the actual details of what’s happened, but it’s a safe bet anyone reading this has been or is in that kind of space right now. Where everything is happening at once when all the aspects of your life are on a collision course with your sanity…
My advice is old and simple be present take one moment at a time and know there is light at the end of the tunnel, and with time, faith and mental toughness you’ll arrive better for it.
