The Power is yours… Quote No. 6 “Encourage Yourself Encourage Other”

Quote No.6 from Encourage Yourself Encourage Others by Anne Devine.

 

20200530_103105

If you struggle with low confidence, low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, inferiority feelings or imposter syndrome which has been described as a feeling of being fake or believing you only achieved success because you were in the right place at the right time.  You may also believe you are not as competent as other work colleagues, other mothers, other bloggers, or you may struggle to accept praise or to bask in the glory of your achievements.  If any of these sound familiar to you then affirmations can help you to deal with and manage these challenges.

Talking about these challenges can help normalise them and help us realise that it’s ok to be human and to admit our struggles.

I’ve doubted my ability as an adult educator and I was able to overcome these doubts by reminding myself that “I am a competent and capable adult educator.”

Encouragement is a powerful tool!  Encourage Yourself  Encougage Others is a powerful tool kit.

What do you struggle with?

What affirmation do you use or might you use from now on?

I often find it helpful to withhold any action in the heat of the moment.  Doing nothing creates space for reflection.

What have you been unsure about lately?  What “positive action” did you take or was “doing nothing” a “positive action” for you?

Quote No.11 from Encourage Yourself Encourage Others by Anne Devine.

This quote is particularly relevant now more than ever.  Don’t be afraid to “Honour and remember those you love in your way.”

We are a country with a long-standing tradition of showing our respects in remembering our deceased relatives, neighbours and friends. However, Covid19 restrictions have caused funeral traditions and services here in Ireland to change.

Now only a limited number of family members can attend a funeral wake and mass now.  That could limit a funeral size to ten or twenty family members only.

Relations, friends and neighbours have started forming a socially distanced line along the road side leading to the church or graveyard instead.  These changes are difficult for all concerned.  Respect how others cope with these changes.  Allow other to honour and remember those they love in their way.

Le grà,

May 12th is Fibromyalgia Awareness Day — Reclaiming HOPE

May 12th is Fibromyalgia Awareness Day. In fact, the whole month of May is dedicated to raising awareness of fibromyalgia. Why is awareness important? Just

via May 12th is Fibromyalgia Awareness Day — Reclaiming HOPE

Today I’d like to share Terri’s post where she has gathered a selection of posts to helps us thrive, not just survive with Fibromyalgia/CFS and she reminds us that

“May 12th is Fibromyalgia Awareness Day.In fact, the whole month of May is dedicated to raising awareness of fibromyalgia.”

What could be more convenient as we continue to raise awareness than having all these dedicated bloggers and their blogs within easy reach!

The month is long, and lockdown longer still so we have the time and opportunity to educate ourselves a little more.  Happy reading and learning.

Unrealistic expectations; a very different animal to healthy expectations!  Have you encountered or employed unrealistic expectations?  What pain did they cause?

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?

We are approximately two months into Covid19 Lockdown and the myriad of new challenges associated with it.

How do you “deal with what is,” what you are finding is your new, present day reality?

How do you avoid stressing about tomorrow or next week, the “what if?

Please share any strategies that have helped you and anything you have learned as a result.

I’m learning to expand my Covid Coping Toolkit.  A few things I’ve added include more meditation, more uplifting YouTube videos, replacing lost physical contact with online video chats via Zoom,  more family time, phone calls, walks and more appreciation of bird song which is easier to hear now with less traffic where I live.

I’m also learning to stay grounded in the moment, just taking it one day or even one hour at a time.  Sometimes there are challenging hours.   Yesterday’s challenging hour taught me that there is a miracle waiting within each grievance, to teach us something if we are ready to listen.

Note to self..”I found the miracle!  I became what Tolle calls the ‘watchful observer.’  I caught myself in the act.  And it taught me to look at my reaction to the event, not the event itself.  I realised that my reaction, which resulted in silence and resort to junk food during the grievance yesterday weren’t constructive choices.  I’ve since spoken about it, pointed out how I felt.  No blame, no bad feeling, no grievance!  No pain!  That is the miracle!

Roll on today!

Quote No.35 from Encourage Yourself Encourage Others by Anne Devine.

20200506_093333

I think the key word here is “your.”  Don’t try to live your life to somebody else’s expectations or level of ability.

Have the courage to be imperfect and remind yourself that courage develops of the back of trial and error.  Courage means pushing yourself onwards in spite of the fear you feel.

How will you live your life to the best of your ability today?  How courageous do you feel?  Share what gave you courage in the past.
Le grà,
