The Power is yours… Quote No.87 “Encourage Yourself Encourage Other”


Quote No.87 from Encourage Yourself Encourage Others by Anne Devine.

While we are in lockdown maybe it’s an opportunity to unlock your talent.  Take advantage of time, nurture a dream you have had…”Embrace it and celebrate it. Share it with others.”

What talent have you neglected? What talent have you unlocked during lockdown?

Use everything you have been given…that’s the path to happiness and that’s my goal for life!

Cead Mile Failte – A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

A Heartfelt Irish Welcome!

Hi, I’m Marie and this is my SPACE where I get to CREATE and indulge my love of writing, learning and reaching out to you!

I love the interactions and connections I’m making here on WordPress and I’ve mentioned it in this post

I believe writing is cathartic and sharing our stories opens us up to conversations that can broaden our perspective and enhance our world view.  I also believe we are amazing human beings with endless potential and we have the power to empower!

I will leave you with one of my favourite quotes

Grace Paley wrote “If you say what’s on your mind in the language that comes to you from your parents and your street and friends you’ll probably say something beautiful.”

My door is always open, please pop in to visit anytime!

Much love,

Twelve Days of Quotes…Seven…Create.

“Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.”
George Bernard Shaw.

I love this quote…as it reflects my blog title “Create” Space.  My goal in starting this blog was to create a little “me” space in my life, a space that would lift me above the daily concerns of family life and living and that would allow me indulge my love of writing.

We give years of our life and vast amounts of our energy on a search for our real selves when all along we should have realised we weren’t lost or missing or in need of being found…instead we just needed to value ourselves and continue to sculpt and shape ourselves into a better, more advanced creation!


Creating comes in many shapes and forms and this beautiful creation is the work of my amazing daughter Emma, made with love from scratch over two evenings.


Emma lost in flow!

Thanks for visiting my “Create Space” and please feel welcome to visit and comment anytime!  What do you do to create yourself? I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Much love,
