The 2020s have been a ride. I consider myself versatile, and I played by the COVID rules as much as I could. I’m a deeply one-on-one, face to face person. I want to hear every single bit of what we are going to learn together. That includes body and eye movements, small-ish facial changes, and I am always trying to unpack the words we are sharing together. It’s fun for me. With COVID, at least half of my ways of meeting were not allowed and online conversations can’t equal the body changes, even online.
It also hurts my head when the rules aren’t the rules. Everyone should have a mask but they don’t, including me since a year ago or so. The YMCA is full of people working out, even early on. The children were supposed to be stronger than us, but now they are getting ill. Who’s in charge of this mess?? New confusion brings new rules, new anger, new helpfulness, and we’re on another ride.
It’s helpful to learn about yourself and others who work with you. I like to use the Target Training International profiles. I’ve been checking out my profile every six months or so to see if it has changed. I’m pretty sure I have changed. But I really haven’t. With all the change swirling, I’m usually back where I started.
So, where should we go now? What happens now? Should we fall into whatever is sitting there? Should we completely change everything? Or should we pretend that everything is the same? I’m going for “let’s see.”
