CORNER STONES

Carrying on with the rebuilding theme. I got to wonder about corner stones.

I am well aware the image is of foundations but there are corner stones in there too.

I got to wonder about all this rebuilding somewhere else stuff and, being me, started researching the how.

How does one build a house, cabin in the woods, sky scraper, whatever safe place you might want to create?

Dig the foundations for sure but first, find your corner stones.

Definition: A cornerstone is.a stone that forms the ba…

What is the opposite of isolated? Populated?

What is the opposite of overwhelmed? Managing ok?

During a ceremony as the New Year, women shared their sense of isolation. Many stated that they could not bear having plans and dreams crushed again and again.

Then someone said, "I guess the trouble is that I keep making plans to take me back to 2019".

I understood her immediately and was amazed. Because I was doing it too. Do you know what I mean?

For example, I dream of going to Paris in April …

It's the Full Moon on Saturday. 

What do I care, I hear you mutter under your breath as you try to remember whether you have bought a present for your neighbour's dog or whatever it is that is making you stressed at the moment.

My brain is tired and frazzled too.

Christmas is in a week and my mind is wondering if my little London family will make it through Wales and actually turn up? What ifs are buzzing around like irritating wasps.

And it is the Full Moon and I like living my life followi…

Brain not working quite right?

I have heard it called Pandemic Fatigue, Covid Fog, Covid Brain... but it matters not what we call it.

What I know and experience myself is that my brain is not performing as well as it did way back when.

When what? I hear you cry.

When the world, our world ended.

And I find I am not entirely sure when that was. Do you have that problem too? Not remembering when things happened before. You know, before the Great Shutdown.

My friends and clients can be equally vague. We don't remember when o…

As you might have read before, because, let's face it, I am pretty open about my own personal struggles, I suffered from a terrible bout of anxiety before I was due to go to London, last week.

Of course, I "tapped on it".

Tapping kind of helped a bit but was not as effective as it usually is.

Now, in my long experience of the technique, if it does not work very well, it is because I am tapping on the wrong thing or using the wrong words.

This is why prospective clients often tell me they "tr…
