We are all on a journey!
After mulling this over for some time, I have a new blog where I aim to highlight the importance of:-
really listening to people
and the impact this can have on both our and their well being
but it does take two!

My first post on this blog shows my big leap in a new direction in my life journey. Some of you may think this is hardly relevant to shutting up and really listening to people…
Throughout this new stage of my life I have needed people to really hear me when I have been struggling with how to move forward.
From my own experiences, in this new strange way of living, those people interested in what was really happening for me have helped me to take a step at a time.
There have not been too many of them!
In a more isolated working environment I have needed to connect with people and learn to talk in a different way to people met along the way. If not loneliness, lack of motivation and low mood are just around the corner!
This is the reality for many home workers and finding new ways to network in our home and work environment can be an increasing challenge.
Really listening to people, on the phone, on the dog walk and understanding how life is for them helps to keep your own concerns in check.
A win win!
