Little by little the wedding planner in Tuscany had found her way. It took a lot of blood, sweat, and tears to get the business going especially with the Covid outbreak and all related difficulties for the specific wedding industry. Rethinking her business was part and parcel of working as a wedding planner in Tuscany for customers worldwide during a pandemic.
Besides the socially accepted worldwide pause for languishing and stagnating here, there, and everywhere, at one point you had to start finding the flow and get your skates on! I am sure that most of us decided to reconsider our long to-do lists or linger between that and a to-don’t list while enjoying the calmness.
The wedding planner in Tuscany was one of those with a good track record in her business and the year 2021 should have gone great guns if it had not been for Covid. So after having a sinking feeling due to the first postponed events, she ended up down in the dumps with no real solution in sight.
She still had hope and had energy. She just felt a little bit aimless and a little bit joyless. On those days we were changing our minds and plans on a day-by-day, hour-by-hour basis, keeping an eye on the case counts, weighing risk and reward.
If you were working on living in the present, that moment might prove to be an effective teacher. Let everything happen to you: beauty and terror. Just keep going. No feeling is final.
By saying accept terror or sorrow, I did not simply mean suffer but experience suffering to understand the meaning and the sense of the situation. The answer remains the same: hope. In that little flame of hope resides victory.
My momentum might work, and it might not. I need just to suck it up and see.
