“Relationships are the oxygen of human development” - Peter Benson

Based on my experience and observations at the moment, here are 43 things to think about…

  1. Don’t do scaremongering, do caremongering
  2. Were all in this together. Even when we are apart
  3. Build good will on good days
  4. Focus on what you can control and not what you can’t
  5. Love is the answer – spread it thick
  6. Check on your neighbours and let them check on you
  7. Services aren’t the solution, communities are
  8. It’s even more important to do the right thing, whatever the right thing is
  9. Like they tell you to on the plane, put your own oxygen mask on first
  10. Smile, it’s good for everyone
  11. There’s no right way to respond to this
  12. Give consistently, receive occasionally
  13. Staying positive doesn’t mean you have to be happy all the time
  14. Fear can sometimes be a liar
  15. Don’t believe everything you think
  16. Empathy drives connection; sympathy disconnection
  17. Do not read the next line
  18. You little rebel, I like you
  19. Less is more only when more is too much
  20. Be a no-ego doer
  21. Work on things that matter the most today
  22. Don’t think less of yourself, just think of yourself a little less
  23. It’s all about making common sense common practice
  24. Engage in dialogue with others even when it’s difficult
  25. Eye contact is good, unless you’re eating a banana
  26. When people don’t feel heard they get louder
  27. A bridge is the coming together of two sides
  28. Conflict, properly managed, is absolutely essential
  29. The removal of threat is not the same as creating safety
  30. Do you remember when you wished for what you currently have?
  31. Other people’s negativity isn’t worth worrying about
  32. Some people don’t need a good talking to, they need a good listening to
  33. Everything works somewhere but nothing works everywhere
  34. Be careful you don’t hit the target but miss the point
  35. Relationships aren’t built in a day; they are built daily
  36. As the saying goes, if you only have a hammer, everything looks like a nail
  37. Homelessness can be solved quickly when it impacts on the wealthy
  38. Social change moves at the speed of the relationships
  39. Results come in action not in discussion
  40. Physical isolation doesn’t have to equal social isolation
  41. You’re not stuck at home. Your safer at home
  42. When your hair needs dying or a cut, you’ll need a hat
  43. #Onlyconnect. [ITL]
