As I travelled from Queensland to Victoria over the weekend, I was reminded of that old song – ‘On The Road Again’. I know that shows my age, but it was weird travelling again and seeing airports and planes full and apart from masks, it looked like things had returned to some form of normal.
Now I don’t know about you, but I have been avoiding going out and have been giving restaurants a big miss, but I realised it is now time for me to re-enter the big, amazing world we live in. To begin to do the things I love again and face things head on.
We have to be careful and do the right thing, but fear is not an emotion that I want to foster and yet it seems that the past two years have allowed fear to re-enter our lives more than it should.
I think that we can sit passively and wait for everything to change, which it won’t, or we can take the bull by the horns and start to realise that – It is what it is and begin to take back the controls of our own lives and businesses.
Now, I know this is a personal opinion and I would never tell people what they should do in this situation, but I will throw out the challenge – what are the things that you need to reintroduce and start doing again? What are the fears that you need to confront head on?
Maybe it's personal adventures, maybe it’s education, maybe it is going to the theatre or a restaurant, whatever it is, start to do it again.
Our mental health and the health of small businesses across this country need some real and positive attention right now and we can play a role in the healing of both.
I will be careful, and I will obey the rules, but I won’t be dictated to by this virus any longer.
Let’s get our lives and our businesses and our communities up and running again.
This culture of uncertainty, fear and frustration must be tamed, and I make a commitment to live my life to the fullest again.
I commit to not making the restrictions the centre of my conversations, but instead look at what I can do and just do it.
I know it sounds simple, but life is simple until we make it difficult.
So, do something awesome this week and take back the controls.
Have a great week.
