It is true when they say life is an unpredictable journey full of surprises and miracles. As we began the year, I taught my learners a small self affirmation dialogue to motivate and remind them that when faced with challenges or had thoughts of being a failure they can do anything.
Lockdown helped me to introspect and I realized that I needed to develop my skills as a coach to interact confidently in my occupation. I experienced fear from the thought of starting something new, but soon realized that courage is the answer to continuous development.
I was excited on 21 March 2020, as it was two days before my birthday. My twin sister and I had plans to celebrate it in a special way, but on that day President Ramaphosa announced a national lockdown due to COVID-19.
