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,

Mindfully Marie xx

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

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

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?

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?

The Power is yours… Quote No. 39 “Encourage Yourself Encourage Other”

Quote No.39 from Encourage Yourself Encourage Others by Anne Devine.

20200504_105817

The behaviour I find difficult is feeling ignored.  Thankfully with each day that passes I am learning that I don’t need to feel ignored, I no longer want that feeling and I’m getting better at letting that feeling go.

I’ve also learned that when you learn how to find yourself you no longer feel isolated or lonely any more.  You realise you have a unique voice and you feel empowered to use it.

Anne reminds us that “Nobody likes to be… talked about behind their backs.”  Try today to catch yourself in the act of gossip.  It is not a nice personality trait to have and observing this habit in yourself, is the first step to changing it.  “Keep kindness to yourself and others high on your priority list.”

Here Mich of michnavs shines a light on gossip culture in the Philippines.  A worthwhile read…

What behaviour upsets you most?

‘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!
