I am not quite sure what to say for my first post. Several thoughts and observations today.
There are so many things happening in the micro and macro environments that it is difficult to make sense and cope with it all:
- Friends, colleagues, and family members are being terminated from their employment for all sorts of reasons.
- Folks I know well are struggling with serious health issues, or are support providers for family members with serious health issues.
- The volatility in our economy and the noise about it leaves a person not knowing what to think.
And so on.
It is interesting how we react to this. We take granted that we live in a secure environment and when things happen that shake and even crack the foundation, we don’t know what to do.
For me, I have found that focusing on the good in the world and in people at large makes a tremendous difference. I can’t change the world, but I can change my corner of the world, particularly the part that exists within.
