The Power is yours… Quote No. 40 “Encourage Yourself Encourage Other”

Quote No. 40 from Encourage Yourself Encourage Others by Anne Devine.

20200502_134603

‘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?

I feel like Anne wrote this one especially for me!

I’m enjoying the challenge of showing up to my blog, almost daily, to share Anne’s warm and insightfully encouraging quotes.  I’m also writing a gratitude journal.  Reading back through my Journal on Christmas Day last was the best gift I gave myself for Christmas and I’m pretty sure my happiness in sharing some precious memories flowed over onto my family.

What do you do to encourage yourself and encourage others?

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?

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.”

The Power is yours… Quote No.54 “Encourage Yourself Encourage Other”

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?

Le grà,

If you are my first, my 500th, 501st follower or any of my regular visitors and friends then this is for you…

Write for One or 501…

500 or 501,

5

Or

5 million; all these numbers have one thing in common!

They all start out as… 1,

And everytime you stop in to visit me, I’m reminded that whether I write for 1, 501 or 5 million followers, my writing starts out with

1 letter,

1 word,

1 sentence,

1 post, and my number

ONE goal will always be to write for

ONE and that

ONE

is me; I write for me, I take what’s in my heart, I treat it with the respect it deserves, I love it and then I set it free especially for you my first, my 500th or my 501st follower…

Present…the best present…

Emma was fully present, lost in flow as she created this gingerbread house, a replica of our home and I just love it!

 

Present

P… for present, being present, living in this very awesome moment with the conviction that any struggle lived in the moment before, is now dead and gone and any pain in the moment ahead, is but an illusion…
R…for reality, creating your unique reality, living your dream, accepting nothing less, appreciating the dreams of others even if they could never be your dream
E…for evolving, changing, growing, mindful that to remain static is not an option
S…for senses, trusting your senses, feeding them with experiences not possessions, not needing to be anything or anyone but yourself
E…for encouraging others, seeing the best in them, challenging them to see their own capabilities
N…for nature and nurture, learning from nature, changing like it changes with the seasons, nurturing your soul and noticing your creativity and spirit evolve as a result
T…for taking time to practice gratitude, thankful for significant others, thankful for coming to know yourself, thankful for being fully and amazingly present… the best present.

I hope you receive the best present this year.

Le grà,
