Before you rush back to normal

Life feels like it’s getting back to normal but it might be a trap. 
 
2020 and its forced changes showed us that something was wrong. Very wrong. We had to take five steps back to reassess and reorganise. In doing so, we lost some freedom but we found ourselves.
 
Sure it was tough, but there were countless silver linings for each of us. Some have to look harder to find them. 
 
As your diary fills up, as you book back-to-back meetings, dinner dates and trips every weekend, remember that for a long time you had stillness. Quiet, space, peace and calm. 
 
What seemed weird and different contained magic that can continue if you make it so. It’s as simple as saying no. Saying not yet. Protecting your time and calendar as if it were a legal requirement.
