It has been a good while since I have written on my website. I stepped away from my business for a couple of years to work full time in the Corporate World and the World of Academia. I cannot begin to tell you how much I have learned since doing so, even though I had worked in the Communications/Media field for so many years. However, I am back in a small attempt to help people in a time of crisis by writing about it.
Among my experiences over the years, I trained to be a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist. For several years, I worked with several individuals, associations, church members and groups,who wanted to learn how to cope as a result of suffering the loss of a loved one or any type of loss.
The world is in a time of extreme crisis right now and we all can relate to a Pandemic we now know as the Corona Virus or COVID-19. World-wide we have all heard of it, share it, get-it, try to avoid it, succumb to it and some are dying from it.
Which brings me back to why I am back to writing blogs as of today. I have accrued many skills and this site was designed to illustrate that to promote my business as a Virtual Assistant working from home. What brings me back? The COVID-19 crisis that is running ramp-id today and I sit home in quarantine like so many, wondering what I could do to help. It then came to me that I could offer my services by just listening. Listening to anyone and everyone that is suffering loss right now. Not only the loss associated with death, but the suffering associated with the loss of jobs, paychecks, family togetherness, activities, learning, social isolation, students missing their pathways of growth and socialization and in particular, students who are losing their rites of passage such as Prom and Graduation and the loss of celebration for their hard work.
Our students/children are learning the hard way that life isn’t fair. It can be destructive, and challenging to our mental health. It can be contagious so easily in life and death. But it can also be shared and conquered by learning new lessons, finding new growth and spiritual healing and finally, sharing in the healing of all countries world-wide. THE ENTIRE WORLD IS UNITED IN OUR GRIEF RIGHT NOW…tied together by an International and National crisis that no one can deny or run from – with only one goal in mind...Survival.
