Max People Update - Alert Level 1

Max People Update 12th June

A couple of words

Well well well said three holes in the ground. We have done well! This level one thing is the way to go for sure. It's not quite normal but we have come a long way.
Another downside to what we are continuing to go through is that personal distancing may take a while for society to get over even after a vaccine has been found.
Have we forever changed how we interact in public?
Trust will be rebuilt given time. However, there may be some that will continue to struggle. Anxieties, fear, misunderstanding, depression may come and sit with one or more of us for a spell. Now is not the time to close off. Be open. Seek a friend, a workmate, a family member or someone you trust and talk about how or what you are feeling. The other side of it is to keep an eye on each other, check in with colleagues. Be there for others as you trust they will be for you.
The effects of what we have just come through and will continue to go through may be felt for years. You can make a difference, be caring and look after each other.
Remember to laugh and have fun peoples.

The final word

"Success? I don't know what that word means. I'm happy. But success, that goes back to what in somebody's eyes success means. For me, success is inner peace. That's a good day for me." -- Denzel Washington

Success is whatever you chose it to be. Pick a path, pick a thing, it's up to you. As long as you are happy, then.......you are successful. Make your own destiny, laugh and enjoy what you have.

Life is about choices. Choose you! Have an awesomeness weekend team!
