Coping With The News

I can’t bring myself to watch the news today. It was so utterly horrific and depressing yesterday. If, like me, you’re finding the news a bit hard to take, here’s a quotation that might help –

When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’
Fred Rogers

Whether you’ve got some experience or none at all, my Developing Your Media Presence course on 4 July is for you. I’ll give you loads of tips, then you’ll be professionally recorded and filmed, with playback and constructive feedback.
It’s in central London, near the BBC, at 76 Portland Place. You can book online, with earlybird discounts, or just ask me for more info – ian@ianpeacock.com
And it’s a Last Word Group course, so it will be fabulous.

Every Day Is The Best Day In The Year

Write it on your heart
That every day is the best day in the year.
He is rich who owns the day, and no one owns the day
Who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can, tomorrow is a new day.
Begin it well and serenely, with too high a spirit
To be cumbered with your old nonsense.
This new day is too dear,
With its hopes and invitations,
To waste a moment on the yesterdays.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
