When listening, I suggest you make notes or listen a few times to ascertain what affects you so you can plan and live your best life possible. As always, think things through, be discerning (for example, I disagree with her views on Putin), and be personally responsible with your decision-making. Being forewarned enables us to make the best choices for ourselves, our loved ones and the issues that concern us.
Penny refers to the continuing floods in Australia. My loving thoughts are with all those impacted, particularly in the areas of the five states where flooding is affecting movement, destroying livelihoods, homes, businesses, animals, wildlife, roads and massive numbers of crops ready for harvest.
Australia is a vast country at 7.7 million square kilometres, and the map below indicates the widespread waterlogged and flooded areas that are also the most heavily populated.
Seeing how communities have come together to look out for each other with so many volunteers helping the authorities and emergency services, including school children helping with sandbagging and cleaning up, has often brought me to tears. So keep up your remarkable resilience and goodwill, Aussies. Thank you to all those helping in myriad ways. We'll get through this too. ❤
