A great host or hostess is usually only identified and singled out when a mishap occurs and they handle the situation with great aplomb.
When troubles arise, we too have a decision of where to turn for answers. Maybe there’s; a fire, an accident, a fall, a shortage.
For the great host or hostess, a mishap means a time for; a pause, a moment of reflection, a moment of assessing the situation for the best possibilities. A time for ‘unchecked imagination’.
It’s a time for a prioritized answer that will best palliate the troubled situation as quickly as possible.
But isn’t that what we all want – all the time . . . the best answer? That hostess will also be a great hostess of life.
Unchecked imagination: allowing all possibilities. Censoring none.
This is not about continually monitoring the weather report for rain.
It’s owning the best umbrella.
