If there’s one pertinent aspect of the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, it’s that it has virtually left no person on this planet we call home, untouched in some way, shape or form. Even if you haven’t fallen ill or been an asymptomatic person who has actually had the virus or have had to live under the restrictions of several lockdown levels, you will know someone out there who has.
Here at Datafin, one of our own colleagues, Michelle Roberts, is now thankfully on the mend and going through the recovery process after she became infected and was hospitalized. It definitely rings true when they say you don’t really become fully aware of the wrath of this deadly virus, until it hits home. Below is a reflective piece written by Michelle about her personal insight and fighting spirit as she takes it day by day to regain her strength to eventually fill the missing spot in our Recruitment Family.
“As I sit in my hospital bed after a week here, with an almost clear mind for what feels like forever I reflect upon what this devastation means to all of us.
The lives changed forever; the lives forever altered never to go back to where their journeys started. No one on this earth has been left untouched.
Next time you let the small things in life get you down, put some thought in it and re-evaluate what life means.
Slow things down, take stock of your passions. I love Recruitment and can’t wait to get back to what I love but it will take time to get there fully. I am still not out of the woods yet but am trying all my might to get there. I will emerge stronger than before. I have so much passion for my clients and candidates. All of you who have dealt with me can attest to this. I will be back.
Show a little kindness where you can.
Work your passion tomorrow. Love your work and find your calling.
Datafin Recruitment is my home and they have shown me all the compassion in the world to guide me through to the other side. Not quite there but almost.”
