There’s something about London. The vibe is completely different and unique to anywhere else for me.
When out of the City, I don’t appreciate how lucky I am to have the flexibility of working in such a diverse, creative environment.
Of course, some might say ‘that’s rose coloured glasses’ but isn’t everything about the way we look at it?
Walking towards the offices today, I noticed the melting pot of diverse buildings, intricately carved ornate old buildings – still standing 100+ years after being built – without power tools! – standing proudly amongst the glass array of newer office structures built with the climate in mind.
IThe diversity of the people who have walked these streets over past generations and those who will in the generations ahead hit me. What would they make of the way we live now? The lessons #Covid have taught us, or not?
The overwhelming thought I was left with was how brilliant us humans can be. Of course I won’t dwell on the disrespectful few on the train into London this morning who just had to be first off!
I’ll focus on the view instead! The atmospheric Tower Bridge with the glass structure of City Hall in contrast.
Wherever you are, whatever you are doing – focus on the positive.
