On a recent flight across the Atlantic and in the middle of the night, the captain’s voice came over the loudspeaker to inform us that we were entering a patch of turbulence, the seat belt sign was to be illuminated, all in-flight services were being suspended and cabin crew were to take their seats. There was however, no reason to be alarmed, this turbulence would pass and normal service would be resumed soon.
Many of you know of my love of metaphor for telling stories of life and this seemed particularly apt. I am indeed entering a patch of turbulence and need to pull back from a couple of commitments to keep me strong and in balance. I will not be posting here for a couple of weeks, you can however find me and follow me on www.facebook.com/BestKnickers/Always.
Maybe, there is a lesson here for us all. What do you do when your life enters a patch of turbulence? Do you have anything set up in your routine to support yourself when the going gets tough or do you plough on blindly through it? What would be the wise thing to do? What would you suggest a friend do? How good are you at taking your own medicine?
The picture above is where I go to re-charge my batteries, it’s where I grew up in South Wales and yesterday the sun shone gloriously.
Let me know what works for you. Let’s share.
Normal service will resume shortly!
