Once the Storm is Over

And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.”– Haruki Murakami

You don’t need me to tell you it’s been a tough year.

It has.

Incredibly tough.

One of the best things about doing the job I do is being witness to other people’s resilience and courage.

I’ve learnt never to underestimate our capacity as human beings to endure, to change, to grow, to overcome, to evolve, to recover, to thrive.

I have no doubt we’ll come through this.

I have no doubt we’re capable of learning the lessons we need to learn.

I have no doubt we can change and survive.

It’s been quite a year for me – both professionally and personally – and I need a complete break. I’m unplugging for Christmas and switching off until after the New Year, and I look forward to catching up with you then.

In the meantime, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Stay safe wherever you are.

With very best wishes

Julie 💙
