It’s times like these during a pandemic that you have assess your feelings and daily mood to not give in to despair. Learn to recognize the downward spiral so you can turn and spin a different direction instead of crashing into the ground. Turn around and focus on a different aspect, a new way of thinking to turn despair into hope.
At the potter’s wheel, “turning” is another word used to describe the process of creating a “foot” on the bottom of a vessel or bowl. Your focus is on the end of the tool used to carve the clay away. Imagine yourself “turning and focusing” to rise out of the desperation of today’s pandemic. Create a focus to move you forward towards your next goal in life.
Around me, some businesses are finding ways to survive, mostly by getting items for sale online or taking their store or restaurant outside, and it seems they are being supported, while some businesses are not getting the support they need. Instead of giving in to despair, it’s time to ‘turn and focus’ on what are our unique talents. It’s time to change up the business model. It’s time to think “What more can I give and how can I do it?”
