Finding Calm in the Chaos with Fiona Redding
These are certainly strange times that we are living in.
But the reality is, that what is going on, is what is going on.
How we navigate ourselves through this experience is up to us.
We do not need to allow ourselves to be overwhelmed and consumed by fear and anxiety and worry.
It helps nothing, and achieves nothing positive.
The only thing that we have any control over in a situation like this, is how we choose to think and behave in each and every moment.
We always have the ability – even though it might not feel like it – but we do have the ability to choose not to buy into the fear and the panic that is going on, and to be considerate about the conversations we are having and the actions we are taking.
The best thing we can do is to remain as calm as we can. To conduct ourselves with dignity and integrity, whatever comes to pass.
To try and live in the moment.
To try and maintain a real sense of humour. Laughter is such an incredible antidote to stress.
To use this time to reconnect with friends and loved ones and to start or finish those projects that you’ve been wanting to do for a long time.
To remember that we live in a community made up of other human beings, and to make decisions that are civically minded.
To care about each other, and to look out for each other.
It’s in times like these that the human spirit can truly triumph.
We can all choose to be that light for others.
And to remember, like all things, that this too, shall pass.

My mission in life is to share everything I have learned – and am continuing to learn – about turning my own life around and to really help you understand that happiness is to be found in the overcoming of obstacles and challenges in your life, and not in the absence of them.
To achieve your potential in life, you need to become your potential. And for that to be, you need to understand yourself, and learn how to harness your strengths and overcome your weaknesses.
You have the power within you to create whatever reality you choose, and I am here to help you know that if you don’t like what you are experiencing, then you can absolutely change that.
But you do have to choose, believe, and be open to all possibilities, and to keep showing up every day, even when it feels really hard.
Because if you do what is easy, your life will be hard. But if you do what is hard, your life will be easy.
