The Power is yours… Quote No. 1 “Encourage Yourself Encourage Other”

Quote No.1 from Encourage Yourself Encourage Others by Anne Devine.

20200613_110423

Today we have reached the end of our journey!  And what an enjoyable journey it has been for me.  We counted our way down through Anne Devine’s Encourage Yourself  Encourage Others and down through the worldwide lockdown.

I set out to share some of Anne’s insightful and encouraging posts and in doing so I found myself  less focused on Covid19 and more focused on encouraging others.

Without intention or realising it these posts gave me a sense of purpose during this strange new experience of retreating into our homes to curb the spread of Covid19 and became for me, a source of encouragement, thanks to your lovely company and enjoyable conversations!

So, I hope you will take something away from these posts and “Begin each day believing it will be a good day” as you continue to Encourage Yourself  Encourage Others.

The Power is yours… Quote No. 4 “Encourage Yourself Encourage Other”

Quote No.4 from Encourage Yourself Encourage Others by Anne Devine.

I’d be lying if I said that today’s quote didn’t apply to me.

As a matter of fact Anne must have placed this quote right here especially for me to find it today!

It has been a challenging few days but I am in a good place thanks to a number of different things, namely,

The support of my wonderful family, good friends, time, acknowledging and accepting my emotions, owning my voice, speaking my truth, non-judgemental love allowing me accept that I can’t control how other people react but I can control how I react and accepting that my private logic is my perspective and that others are entitled to their private logic or their perspective too.

Knowing that “Each challenge helps you to grow” is a great insight and I am blessed being able to understand that without challenges we would never flourish or reach our potential.  “Today is a good day.  I Choose to make it so.”

Thank you Anne for this wonderful tool kit brimming with love, forgiveness, self-care reminders and boundless encouragement!
Le grà,

Quote No.20 from Encourage Yourself Encourage Others by Anne Devine.

When my children were bullied into silence, I hadn’t realised that I was bullied too.  It took professional support to help me see this.

I’ve had to relearn the importance of my own voice and how to use it to good effect.  My opinion matters and now, I can say it with confidence!

Have you had to relearn the importance of your own voice?  Are you confident that your opinion matters?

‘Thank you,’ two simple words that are often not so simple to say.  Sometimes we brush off a compliment rather than acknowledging it and saying thank you.  Sometimes we have the best of intention but being busy or complacent, we neglect saying thank you for a kindness received.  Remember “A simple thank you is all that is needed.”

Thank you” for your visit and company today!

When have you struggled to say thank you?

What have you done during Lockdown that’s been new to you?

I’ve taken part in a Zoom poetry club and a Zoom Cafe Adler.  They were fun and they gave me the opportunity for some new learning.  I enjoyed the sense of community and it helped replace the social interaction I’ve been missing!  I’ve also been busy sharing and enjoying these positive quotes and the lovely interactions they are creating for me!

Please share something you’ve never done before, something new and different that you’ve been doing!

“Remember that you are not a victim.”  What attitude do you choose today?

Quote No.67 from Encourage Yourself Encourage Others by Anne Devine.

20200417_104023

During this pandemic it is important to find and trust facts only from reliable sources.  If negative thoughts arise, challenge your thoughts by asking yourself if they are true and just.  Isolation and too much time to focus on negativity can throw things out of perspective very quickly.  “Encourage yourself to see the positive in yourself and others too.”

In times of change, self-doubt can creep up on us.  What was normal has vanished and we are learning to adjust to a new and different way of life.  Be patient and encourage yourself.  “Know that you are good enough.  Each of us is.”

Quote 91

Did you have to adjust your phone or other technology in order to read this quote?

Did that throw you off momentarily?

I’m deliberately trying to pull you into the moment. I’m hoping to take you out of the trance of daily life.  Out of autopilot.

A few weeks ago we spent a lot of time in autopilot, thinking of everything we had to do.

Today we have an opportunity to stay with those tomatoes…

because we have been given the gift of time!
