Inspirational Sir Tom Moore
Congratulations to the magnificent Sir Tom Moore. There’s nothing like the likes of beautiful people like this man to truly motivate and get under your skin. A fine figure of a human being embodying the very essence of sheer resilience and determination. Capturing a moment in time that will go down in history with him being one of the leaders of the pack and who stole the heart of millions.
He, for sure, is out of this world and will be hailed a hero for centuries to come as the man that raised over £38 million for the NHS. It’s people like this that keep me going. I know that for sure.
They make you believe you can do anything. They inspire so many to make good of a situation and adapt to life for the greater good and as best you can. They make you believe in your ability to strive, be ambitious, to challenge yourself. They create a sense of fun and humanity and bring humour to the world.
Through hardship there can come an unwavering ability to muster up an inner strength to achieve. They restore some faith in kindness, humanity and create the greatest sense of patriotism. They believe in what they are doing with great gusto and they make you believe in them too.
I’m so grateful to people like this. It’s been another very busy week at work. I got to last night absolutely knackered and a bit sad as most of my team have agreed to be furloughed. Saying goodbye to them was actually very hard. Albeit temporary. But it’s ok. It’s because of the likes of Tom that I am here, and healthy and able to work. Not only for his support of the NHS but for fighting for our country all those years ago.
Life through this pandemic has been so surreal and weird. I have taken it all in my stride really but it wasn’t always easy. However, what it did do was emphasised things in my life that I am so proud of. It’s highlighted a pain I keep well hidden most of the time. But rather than focusing on that and what can’t be done or what I don’t have it’s good to try to use this as an opportunity to just be, believe in yourself and focus on what can be done.
Each to their own with how they cope through times like this. So many people criticising others for how they are dealing with it. I see a lot of hate towards people that are being positive. Urm why? What a load of old tosh. I find this concept just bizarre. In a world where suicide is on the increase and mental health and wellbeing is such a hot topic why on earth would people turn on those making good of a situation? Our education in this area is to find elements of positivity in our lives, focus on the now, focus on what you have and what you can control. How strange people can be. It’s laughable in some cases. I know it’s human nature but it’s still sad to see people deflect their own worries and fears towards ones that have found their new normal and getting on in a positive way.
I digress a little but everyone is struggling one way, shape or form. Everyone is sad in some way. Everyone is currently living a life they’ve never known before or dealing with the aftermath of lockdown. This is hard for all. And no one ever truly knows what’s going on in someone’s mind or indeed what the future holds. Be kind to those being positive. It might be all they have to keep going. Sir Tom Moore encapsulates positivity in flourishing abundance and I love him so much for it.
One of my go to ways of coping through this time has been my challenges. Adding it into the mix has definitely helped. Not only for my mental wellbeing but to try and keep some level of fitness and normality going. Seeing this legend do his walking challenge and the magnificent heights of awesomeness he has achieved makes me even more determined.
Like Tom with the NHS, I am so very proud to be supporting another great cause. The British Heart Foundation. Both charities mean the world to me for a multitude of reasons. My challenges are a tiny tiny snippet in the grand scheme of things but like Tom it keeps me going. Keeps me strong. Keeps me fit.
Inspirational Sir Tom Moore. You legend 🙌
