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.

Make today the most amazing Sunday by putting these four lines into practice…

Then do it again tomorrow!

Let me know how you get on,  share the difficulties you encounter and share the highlights, encourage others by letting us know how remaining compassionate changed your day!

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

Isn’t it amazing when you stop to think about it?  There are thousands of blogs and bloggers here, yet no two bloggers are the same or have the same voice.  Each voice speaks to me in it’s own unique way!  Do you agree?  I know I have come to recognise so many wonderful, insightful, warm and entertaining voices.  I hope you see yourself in my list!  Embrace your unique self!

And as for flaws!  Couldn’t we write a book on flaws and what a creation that would be! We all have flaws.  Learning to embrace our imperfection is the gateway to possibility…

Will you run to or away from that gateway today?

Our beautiful weather of the past few weeks was such a blessing.  We enjoyed many meals outdoors.  The best temperature we noted was around 18 degrees, as nice as an average summer’s day.  But that weather has changed to much cooler, 7 to 12 degrees and showery.  There is a feel of winter back in it again.  I’m challenging myself to find the positives in it, such as the freshness of the air after a heavy shower.

What positives are you noticing about today’s weather where you are?

Quote No.54 from Encourage Yourself Encourage Others by Anne Devine.

Coping during this pandemic takes real courage, actually it takes twice as much courage!

Choose ways to be actively kind to yourself.” Make time for that walk or bath.

Be creative, when you can’t have a real cinema night, have a home, virtual cinema or “Watch Party” night.

You will be well placed to handle everything life  throws at you; family illness, separation, isolation, pain and loss coupled with the fear and uncertainty of this new unknown.

Be extra kind to yourself and others today!

What’s on your list today?

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.”

“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.”

How have you practiced self-compassion?
