We are experiencing a situation that is almost what was only seen or experienced in 1918 where millions of lives were lost. At the moment we are not there yet by the grace of God. However at this time the worst enemy is actually the fear originating from numerous sources of information. Our communities need to know how to cope with this fear.
This is my personal experience and I believe its an encouragement someone.
How i am copying with the Fear:
- Reaching out to others – I check on the people i know and those not known to me too. I do this by either calling them, sharing positive messages like the one you are reading. We also identify a few families that are less fortunate for a small uplifting & support. This has been an amazing way of life’
- Staying connected – I spend my Monday’s on inspiring the teams, Thursday’s on training them on Zoom, prayers on Friday’s and Wednesday’s and Zoom bible study on Thursday’s. Once in a week I plug in to the Kenya Private Sector Alliance ( KEPSA) discussions. These help me stay connected.
- Be creative – Thinking of something that you can do differently. There has never been a time like this that ideas flow like a river. These ideas will and are changing Optiven Group in a big way going forward. Don’t forget to note them down. This is also the time to test ideas that you needed more time out of the busy schedules.
- Unplug – I do unplug by turning off the negative energy. Stay away from WhatsApp groups that only post scary videos, massages or news channels that only talk of bad news. I love listening to Hope FM for spiritual nourishment. Choose what inspires you.
I wish you well and feel free to share.
