I’d written and scheduled today’s blog about three weeks ago. I was going to talk about this fantastic online course I’d done, based on finding inner confidence and wisdom, hoping to inspire you to find a little more of your own.
Of course, I hadn’t predicted the global apocalypse.
If nothing else, this is a big, glaring reminder that ‘stability’ is a lie; that control is indeed an illusion.
However, it’s also a time of togetherness, kindness, compassion and generosity, even amidst social distancing and isolation. In that spirit, the lovely creator of the course I was going to tell you about, award-winning confidence coach Jo Emerson, has made the course free to anyone struggling with anxiety during this time of crisis.
If that’s you, email firstname.lastname@example.org for an access code requesting a link to her free online course.

I cannot recommend this enough. Did I mention it’s free? Did I mention that Jo won an award for ‘Confidence Coach of the Year?’
Perhaps I should also mention that this course left me – someone who has read and acted upon a library of self-help/therapy/meditation – with a sense of inner-calm and connection that I’ve never experienced before.
I’ve learned about the different aspects of my character – the critic, the feelings and the voice of wisdom. I’ve learned that I have a choice about which voice I listen to; that I can take my council from a place of inner-wisdom, a place that I didn’t even know was there. I’ve learned that I don’t have to block out feelings or critical thoughts… I can speak back to them, reassure them, let them be heard (without being in charge).
The world’s upside down, but I feel uncharacteristically calm, resourceful, proactive.
If any of this sounds appealing to you, email Jo as above, and start unlocking your own inner-calm. I can’t think of a better way than to take something positive out of all of this.
