Blog post re-share: You Are Amazing

It’s so easy to overlook yourself and this post serves as a good reminder for us. ūüôā

I’m truly enjoying the November Soul Reset.

Day Three is talking about gratitude, but not just the proverbial list. It asked me to thank myself.

To say ‚Äėthank you‚Äô to me for being me.

Consider the last time you felt thankful for yourself. Really genuinely. Not because someone told you to. But because it just dawned on you. It just dawned on you that you are pretty amazing. ~SC Lourie

This is rather profound. When I think back of all the things I‚Äôve been through, I tend to thank God, and that someone who stood by me during the storm. I cannot recall if I‚Äôve ever said, ‚ÄúThank you Barb.‚Ä̬†

I encourage you to take a quiet moment with you. Sit with a warm cuppa, and thank you for being there for you. When you think of who you love most in this world let it be you. You…

Post re-share: “What it really means to hold space for someone.”

I came across this via Facebook today and I felt the need to share this post here.

“What it really means to hold space for someone.”¬†This will take you to another website called, ‘Uplift,’ where you will be able to read it there.

Mystery package

I received a couple of packages today, but one of them I wasn’t expecting and it is a mystery, because I did not order this. It came from Blurt and I received a colouring book and a postcard with a positive quote. A lovely gift received. Thank you, if you are reading this.

Self-kindness went out of the window today

I have talked about being kind to ourselves in other people’s blog posts when the subject has come up and I think I mentioned it here somewhere too. I know I was being aware of not slipping backwards, which I revealed in this post. But today, my self-kindness has been going out the window in parts. I have called myself stupid a few times today, one of them I only remember for what it was for and it was minor. So I need to nip this in the bud. (I gave myself a good ticking off prior to writing this post. Did I need to tell¬†myself off anymore? lol)

It has probably just been a long day for me, as I have been up since just before 6am for a delivery that could come anytime today. (This came this afternoon.) I was waiting for three  planters with trellis and I have a problem with one of them received, as it is damaged. So I have emailed about that. Surprisingly, I am not tired, because usually tiredness can make me snappy with myself.

How has your self-kindness been?

Kindness

Kindness to me is:

  • Remembering the very basics our parents taught us, which is thank you and please. It does not cost anything to remember these simple manners.
  • Holding the door for someone
  • Giving up that disabled seat for who it is meant for; the elderly and disabled, or anyone who is struggling to stand on a crowded bus
  • Seeing a person for who they are, beyond their physical appearance, or disability
  • Seeing every person for who they are, we are all individuals
  • Giving kindness
  • When you are struggling but someone gives you a reason to carry on
  • A simple hello to someone you pass, or a short conversation at the bus stop
  • Being able to give kindness when you are struggling yourself
