Find your local role…

Just one experience from last week. I feel that local community is more important than ever. I know hat most of us are online for many hours and connecting with the ‘global village’. I have realised that internet always takes me mile away to different continents which is lovely but I do have less andContinue reading “Find your local role…”

Getting ready…

I was totally unprepared. I admit that quite openly. I did not have any face masks at home. Did not have food supplies. My Wifi was not able to handle long online sessions. Now it is different. I am usually so organised and equipped with my lists right? So I have decided to mention aContinue reading “Getting ready…”

Self-care as a part of routine

One thing that I have noticed around me is an increase in tension. Many people seem to be under a lot of stress. They seem more stressed and more sensitive. I am not saying everyone but definitely a large number of people. And I am one of them for sure. Staying at home uncovered lotsContinue reading “Self-care as a part of routine”

Going back to what I know…

Well, in times of crises I have always done it. Went home, talked to my grandma, met up with dear friends, looked at old photos, played old song…So this time I am going back to something I thought I have experienced and shelved. I even wrote a post about it and thought to myself: “DoneContinue reading “Going back to what I know…”

That is what I have been doing during the lockdown and it occurred to me – that instead of having a big creative block or a big burnout, I experience a series of small ones. Not sure why it is, butContinue reading “Mini-blocks and mini-burnouts”

Working from home – because that is the only way now…

So…I have completed several weeks of work from home now. And just few months ago I thought that I will never work from home again…. This time round I found it quite hard. I was distracted by what was going on around me. I spent hours watching videos about the pandemic; what to prepare, howContinue reading “Working from home – because that is the only way now…”

Working from home again – what next?

Working from home become the new norm in a last couple weeks. Even people who never intended work from home – simply have to. I found myself paradoxically at home again. Nothing new to me and I eased to it quickly. However, my old fears and problems reappeared: …I can be made redundant any time.Continue reading “Working from home again – what next?”

On toxic people and on being yourself

 I am just putting few thoughts on the paper about toxic people and how to deal with them. Mainly because I came across few of them quite recently.
