Today marks the first day of “Roadmap out of Lockdown” for us here in England (Scotland, Wales and Ireland have different rules). England’s educational places are open again from today which will be a big change for a lot of people. I think if my son were still school age, I would have been nervous about sending him back out there. Having said that, I’m not sure how well either of us would have coped with home-schooling either! I’m wishing every single one of the parents and kids the very best of luck on their first day back for many, many weeks.
It’s also International Women’s Day today. Part of me loves that we have this day and part of me feels aggrieved that we need one. Sometimes I wonder what these “International Days” offer, even though I quite like some of them. Perhaps they’re purely to raise awareness or just give us all a good reason to stop and take a moment to celebrate the good stuff? Either way, I guess it’s good that we have something else to focus on other than Covid-19 or political issues.
Last week I started another business eCourse by the wonderful Leonie Dawson. She continues to make me laugh and inspire me to Get My Biz Stuff Out There. If you haven’t come across her work yet, you can check out her world at Leoniedawson.com
I’m still having fun creating my latest offerings that I’ll be releasing into the wild soon. I’ll talk more about that in a later post.
I’ve been topping up my energy reserves with my trusty Bach Flower remedies recently. Today I went with the ‘Hornbeam’ remedy (nicknamed The Monday Morning remedy) which is a great one for lifting that drained feeling when you think about all the work you have ahead of you. I also chose a few drops of the remedy ‘Larch’ (a favourite if you’re a fan of the Monty Python “Lumberjack” sketch!). Larch is great when your self-confidence has dropped, and you feel the need for your inner cheerleader to appear and cheer you on.
I’m hoping this week will feel a bit more optimistic now that we have started the slow road out of this country’s third lockdown. Fingers crossed!
Sending you hope, health and happiness,
