No room for doom and gloom!

I just had a lovely lunch with my dear friend Ayesha and we talked about the repercussions of the Volcanic disruptions to the economy, the travel industry in particular and the world at large. It’s no surprise that this eruption has caused havoc and losses of millions of pounds already, not just to the travel industry but also other businesses due to missing staff, canceled meetings, the cost of chartering transport etc., etc., etc. Individuals also stand to leos money if insurance companies don’t pay out.

Lots of pundits are predicting “dire consequences” and I just think – here we go again. Thats what they said for Y2K (The Millennium bug – remember that?), 9/11, the recession – that the world’s coming to an end very rapidly or “we will never recover”.

The thing is though, that we did recover from all the above, even though it was painful, arduous and downright difficult, we recovered. Why do we keep arguing for our limitations??? In the long term, things do always get better and some day we will all look back and maybe eve chuckle at how a little known volcano caused so much disruption.

Even though Optimism appears to be so unfashionable as to be frowned upon these days, I for one am going to be the last holdout!
