Quote No. 49 from Encourage Yourself Encourage Others by Anne Devine.
We are all learning to accept the imposed boundaries of lockdown. Some of us are finding it easier than others. Now might be a good time to consider if the boundaries we have in our own lives are helpful or if they could do with being revised. It takes courage and maturity to “Accept that what others do is their business.”
Quote No.62 from Encourage Yourself Encourage Others by Anne Devine.
“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way”….Victor E.Frankl, “Man’s Search For Meaning.”
“Remember that you are not a victim.” What attitude do you choose today?
Quote No.64 from Encourage YourselfEncourage Others by Anne Devine.
Have you had times during lockdown when you were unsure of what to do? Did you consider it from different angles and seek advice from others? Were you able to “Trust that things will work out in their own way and in their own time.”
Quote No.66 from Encourage Yourself Encourage Others by Anne Devine.
“Practice self-compassion always” and particularly now as we face new challenges during lockdown. It’s ok not to be perfect, “Everybody messes up in life. Everybody makes mistakes. Be gentle with yourself.”
Quote No.72 from EncourageYourselfEncourageOthers by Anne Devine.
At present you may struggle to “Live each day well” or to find “the blessings and miracles in each day.” Try to look past the distress of Covid19 and identify small blessings and miracles in your day.
It can be difficult to acknowledge your own miracles such as just getting out of bed and facing another day in isolation, being kind when you felt like being unkind or simply enjoying a cup of tea and allowing your world to stand still. These are true blessings!
What blessings and miracles have you found, please share them here and Encourage Yourself Encourage Others to find these blessings and many more!
