Trying to See You …

I am awake, I am alive, and this morning I am contemplating the two sides of my career coin …

Before Covid, my work required travel, lots of it. I missed being home. I missed my comfy bed and I missed my furmate but I loved interacting in person in real time. I loved the laughter and the hugs.

But then Covid …

Now my work is primarily on Zoom. This means I now speak at global, national and provincial events, reaching more people than ever before. I am at home with my comfy bed and my furmate, at no time missing the exhaustion of travel.

But this morning, I realized how quickly I now move from one event to another. More may hear me but I meet so few of the participants now (and sometimes, just the organizers). It is harder to remember a group of amazing people when I never stand in the same room with them but I so want to. I so want to.

So today my friend, flip the coin. Cherish that human who tries your patience at times knowing they love you during the other hours. Enjoy the food but not too much (second helpings are rarely our friend). Live each moment of this day but know you only get to live it once, so don’t waste it.

Today as always, my journey continues. Another event this afternoon but this time, I get to see FACES of people I KNOW and that is pure awesomeness because even during Covid, we are all so much more than a name on a screen.
