Age is no barrier. It’s a limitation you put on your mind.

Busy (and reliable)

The thing that made you busy might have been the reputation you earned for being reliable.

Ironically, that very busy-ness might destroy your reputation. That’s one reason that so many service providers stumble once they begin to gain traction.

There are two things you can do before the crisis hits:

First, say “no.” A lot. The gigs you would have taken when you were struggling might not be the gigs you should take now. Your reputation for reliability earns you more trust, and that trust gets you invited to work with better clients and on better projects. The cost (benefit) of that is that you’ll need to turn down opportunities that you would have been willing to take on just a little while ago.

Second, tell the truth. It’s hard at first, particularly since our self-conception might have been built around independence and invulnerability. But being reliable doesn’t mean being perfect. It means being clear.

Two mottos that might help:

“You’ll pay a lot, but you’ll get more than you paid for.”

and

“Our secret is that we don’t lie to get the project.”

My Mother fell very ill! Sadly she was prescribed the wrong medication! My mother has low blood pressure but was given High Blood Preeaure tablets and the anti inflammatory medication caused a bleeding ulcer. Hence my Mum had lost a lot of blood! The procedure to travel is so complicated but I do believe very necessary! 

Before you travel please make sure you have checked all the rules and regulations.

The hospital told me I needed to be at the airport 5 hours before for a PCR test.

I had just missed the lot that had gone for testing. 

We arrived at the airport at 3pm. Did the test and was told that the test was sent out at 5pm.

My flight was at 10:25. They kept my luggage back as they were not sure of the results! 

The results came just on time and I was allowed to board.

Wearing a mask for the 11 hour flight was Aweful but at least when we were given food and drinks we could take it off for a short time.

On landing and fetching the hired car, I got hopelesly lost! The sign boards had changed.

No GPS, no cell phone 🙈 ALWAYS ensure you hire a car with GPS and have a second phone for the country you are travelling to.

Another 2 hour drive and I finally got to see my Mother after 3 years.

My mother was frail and week and I made it just on time.

Thank you all for your support and prayers!
