Blog post re-share: Tails of Hope

After coming across this post this morning, at Katzenworld, seeing the wonderful work that Tails of Hope, it makes me want to come back to Facebook, just to follow their wonderful work and similar charities.

My favourite video that made me smile this morning, was watching Alfie on the wheeler. He had a cat toy in his mouth and he wasn’t willing to share.

Before my friends start getting excited about the possibility of me coming back to Facebook, I wouldn’t.

I can watch the wonderful work like this charity, without registering back on Facebook.

Display your rainbow

Rainbow with words stay safe

You may have already seen, or heard about rainbows being displayed in windows in the UK, as well as other countries.

Have you joined in and displayed yours?

You can get your own rainbow from Pensitivity 101, if you like this one pictured in my post. Or you can be creative and paint one, like others have done and that I first seen and heard about elsewhere.
However you choose to do yours, do spread your love and care by displaying a rainbow in your window.

I did mine double-sided, so I could see the rainbow too.

You can easily Google, or if you Facebook and Twitter the following hastags and see other people’s rainbows:

Blog post re-share: Are You a Good Friend to Yourself? — Dr. Eric Perry, PhD

A good post by Dr. Eric Perry, PhD, “Are you a good friend to yourself?” Do click on the link at the end of this post to take you to it.

In the course of writing this blog, I have been keeping check on being kind to myself. Most of my adult life, I have spoken to myself horribly, putting myself down. I don’t think I have spoken to myself horrid before being an adult, but with things I have blocked/or forgotten, I don’t really know.

The last five years I have been much kinder to myself, to the years before, but the odd moments still creep in. If they do creep in, the nasty talk can last from a few seconds to a couple of minutes. It used to be longer than before, until putting into check.

The way I have spoken to myself, I wouldn’t speak to a friend like that.

If you are like that, then this post below will help you.

May 2020 be kind to you

You will notice if following me for some years, that I have not created a Happy New Year type post. This isn’t because I don’t wish it for my readers, because I do. It’s just because of how I feel about last year; struggling with the idea of Christmas and not looking too far ahead. Also, because how I feel, just coming straight out with Happy New Year feels rather fake as saying Merry Christmas, which was why I could only say as far as Seasons Greetings last year. My following words below is far as I can say as close as I can to the above I cannot say, for the New Year. I hope these words reach you kindly.

May you, my readers and my friends, find 2020 to be kind to you.

This is all I can hope for in a difficult path I am having after what 2019 became.

I can only try and cherish the small good things in 2019 and hope that 2020 gets easier on the path I am on and what ever lies ahead in the future.
I am trying to think what I would like to do this year, to have something to look forward to, with a possible aim for something else from now until 2020 to 2021.

As much as I am trying to live my life and look forward to good things, it’s hard.

For those on their own difficult paths, you are not alone. Like me, may you find many small things that make you smile this year.
Also something to look forward to, so that all the small things, build into big things, that make positive, happy feelings, to kick out the bad.

Blog post re-share: You Are Amazing

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

Letitgocoach

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 ‘thank you’ 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’ve been through, I tend to thank God, and that someone who stood by me during the storm. I cannot recall if I’ve ever said, “Thank you Barb.” 

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…

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?
