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,

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?

Le grà,

Mindfully Marie xx

“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?

Sadly because of the impact of Covid19 there is a greater possibility that we will “..meet someone who has suffered a huge loss in their life..”  That loss may take many forms such as the loss of loved ones, loss of livelihood, loss of motivation or mental wellbeing.  And maybe we will be better aware and “have the courage to stand in the silence beside them.”

I wish you the gift of self-peace for Easter and the courage to share your peace with others!

Stay safe, stay well.

I will be in touch again after Easter on Tuesday 14th of April.

More than half the population of our precious planet is in lockdown, meaning we have lost control of our own autonomy. We are united in this loss of control and we are united in being offered a valuable lesson. We can’t control what’s happening in the world but we can control our own attitude to it and what we learn from it. Don’t judge others or try to control how they handle it… “Let situations unfold in their own way and time. And they will.”

Le grà,

Mindfully Marie xx
