So how are we feeling? Personally I am missing my family and friends, even though we have been using Zoom and House Party to stay in touch, it is not the same.
We have had a few family birthdays and over the last couple of weeks it has been difficult to try and make it fun for everyone, as we are a very close family and we are also missing each other, but I think it is bringing us closer together.
As for my work that has gone out of the window, I am struggling to be creative I started my business a year ago, offering small businesses help with getting publicity. To be honest it has not been easy, I have run into all sorts of problems, my biggest has been that little voice in your head, which tells you are no good and your not fooling anyone. I guess most of us that have tried something new have felt this way, and it is quite a challenge to push past it. But I had just started to make some headway, my business and my confidence was growing and then the Covid 19 hit and it all came to a sudden end, and I was left feeling bewildered not sure what to do.
So after spending a few days just sitting on my bed contemplating, I thought of my mum who passed away a few years ago and how she would tell me to stop thinking about it and just get on with it, I have nothing to loose and everything to gain.
So now I have a plan, whilst in isolation I will make good use of this time and work on my online magazine World Wise Women, with podcast and blogs from women that I hope will inspire and encourage other women to leave their comfort zones, and try something new. This is a project that I have been working with for a while now but whilst working on my other business never had the time to make it happen.
I am looking for other ladies to write blogs, which I can post on World Wise Women I am also looking for ladies to record interviews on zoom, which I could post. It would be great if you would like to get involved. Tell us your story, why are you doing what your doing and how are you coping with the uncertain times? Could you inspire others by writing a blog about it?
I can’t wait to hear from you, please just give it a go, please email me with your blog or if you would like to try doing a zoom interview. Gillian.firstname.lastname@example.org
