Staying Empowered while Panicking

Am I panicking? I don’t really know.

I guess it’s just body sensations – tightness in the chest, quickened heart beat, brain not thinking clearly,………..

When does it happen?

When I don’t know what to do………when I stop to think……when I am annoyed or mad at someone……when I am not getting my own way……..when I listen to someone tell me how bad everything is and not to go out…………

Interesting, right?

When I’m busy I’m fine. When I’m staying present, I’m fine. So, ………(duh)…….I’ll stay busy and present then. It’s just a matter of remembering.

I can always stay busy by writing blogs, recording videos, reading, reaching out to people, getting on a web call, and, oh yes I forgot, even working……….

I have to do an interview in 5 minutes so I am trying to type fast.

This is the first day in 3 where I have felt the panic so I am using it to empower others….

How to Stay Empowered during a Crisis

[OMG – I was on the phone with my daughter and while talking to her I posted that video to Facebook. Breathe, breathe, breathe – out of my comfort zone – who am I to have something to say, etc. Well, it’s done so let it go and move on………OK, thanks.]

LATER:

I just had a lovely interview with a potential high school intern. She was mature, poised and knew what she was looking for. As a high school senior back in the day, I would not have been that mature. I would have been more interested in fun, boys, and enjoying my life until college started. I’m very impressed with both young ladies I have interviewed so far.

OK, gotta go back to work.

Hang in there. And, if you know anyone with Corona, please let me know. I have a friend in healthcare who knows how to reduce/eliminate the virus early. I’m not publicizing his cure, but I could get you in touch with him directly. That knowledge has definitely calmed me down and I hope it will calm you down as well.

More soon.

Thanks for listening,
