What About You? Affirmation Challenge Day 2

Today, I’m blessed with a sound mind. I’m filled with love in my heart for myself and for others. Today, I make an effort to appreciate something about every person that I interact with.Image result for pinterest quotes on love

Excellent Quotes From Yesterday:

From Raili at Soul Gifts: Here’s my quote for today. I let Louis Hay’s book of affirmations fall open and this is what I got – “I allow love to flow freely. My supply of love is endless.”

From E Leukhardtblog “Life is a roller-coaster. There are ups, there are downs. But you always end up relieved and smiling. Hold on to the safety rail so you can always be smiling. “

From Mandibelle: “Love her but leave her wild” – by Atticus. This one has stuck with me awhile, and when I thought about it I concluded that to be loved but yet “wild” to be our natural self, and not have to be “tamed” or trapped by another, is a good goal in relationships and friendships. Choosing to be tamed by someone you love such as the fox in ‘the little prince,’ is one thing. But having a choice and even finding that within being tamed, you can still be wild and not have to hide your true self is important. To be loved for your wildness — your flaws and your good qualities is the best kind of love. It’s a love that doesn’t control each other or defines each other in a narrow box but allows each person to grow and be themselves within relationships, It forgives and doesn’t try to make someone be who they are not. It’s loving without a need to dictate one’s lover or friend’s behaviour and choices.

From Susieshy45: You are your own best friend- is my quote for today. You know what is best for you. While others are good in the physical sense, no human being can be 100% for you as you yourself.

and a couple of my lovely friends on Facebook joined in:

From Marcellina Oparaoji: Here’s is mine. I so believe in this:

“I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself. For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition.” ― Martha Washington

From Chandrima Chatterjee

Healing starts with the first step of acknowledgement of your issues and positive reaffirmations. It becomes your beginning. A starting point to the journey of self-forgiveness and reconciliation. The affirmations open up your subconscious by telling it ‘that you are in charge.’ You are taking ownership of the changes that you need to make to get where you need to be.

Mindset – Ronovan writes weekly haiku challenge.

This week’s haiku prompt ‘Change & Mind,’ made me think of myself and how my mind seems clogged these days with tons of stuff that I need to do. Our mind is our powerhouse and every change we crave to achieve stems from it. Like is popularly said, change your mind and you change your life.

Our mind is our powerhouse and every change we crave to achieve stems from it. Like is popularly said, change your mind and you change your life.

I have a lot on my mind

that I must attend to,

to achieve the changes that I want.

**

A closed mind

gives little room

for any changes.

**

When you change your myopic mindset

you are open to affirmations

that will ultimately change your life

Every Tuesday, I share snippets of thoughts that I call ‘My Thinking Corner.’

I would like to invite you to participate. The challenge is quite simple. You can check this link for more details.

 

focus[1]

♣ When you focus on the goodness in your life, you create more of it.

♣ Where do you want to be? That’s where your focus should be. Don’t stop to be distracted by all the side attractions or run after what everyone else is doing. What is your focus? Keep your eyes on it so that you can reach your destination.

It’s easy to get pulled into all the things that takes our mind away especially the negative things that seems to pervade the entire space. Always remember to pull yourself back and not to get sucked into the energy depleting vibes and negativism.

Below are more snippets of wisdom from awesome bloggers. Take a moment to read.

Today’s Nuggets: don’t fold or clip your wings. Don’t limit yourself. This is worth the read.

Inner Peace: beautiful words that are worth adopting for daily and peaceful living.

The path to true greatness: a short and delightful piece of wisdom that you will enjoy. It made me smile.

Words of wisdom: what advice are you dishing out to others? Will you take the same if offered?

Quotes worth repeating: there are quotes that you keep at the fore front of your mind and these ones from Muhammad Ali are priceless.

I hope that you find these little drops useful now and again. Do check them out and please share snippets of your thoughts with us.

Thanks and blessed be.

Midnight Motivation and Musings # 91

Note that there’s a difference between being centered on self and being self-centered.

In all our busy-ness, we sometimes let ourselves fall by the wayside, trying to please a, b, c to z in our lives as well as meet up with so many expected goals.

It’s absolutely important that you take care of your physical, emotional and mental well-being which will equally ensure a balanced, happier person.

When you are ragged and run into the ground, your optimum ability to achieve may not only drop, but you become miserable and possibly grouchy towards others.

As you extend kindness to others, be kind to yourself as well.

Be kind to your body. Keep active.

Cut down the meaningless and mindless entertainment and use that as a me-time to rebalance.

There are many little ways that we can take care of ourselves. In another post, I’ll share my own personal weekly routine.

It’s not perfect and a continuous work-in-progress but it’s been useful and anyone can tweak theirs according to their individual circumstances.

The important thing is to recognise that there’s constant need to take out moments in time to rebalance.

P.S. You are invited to our monthly blog party this weekend. It’s fun and you get to meet fantastic folks:-)

Out of the silent breath

A deep sense of satisfaction

of peace, I sense within

as the Sun peeks to say hello

I am happy to embrace me.

Tuesdays Trickles…My Thinking Corner #23

Each Tuesday, share your very short snippets of positive, inspiring, motivating, health, spiritual, writing advice, clips, posts etc, that can serve as a prop to motivate others and simply add my link to your post.

♥ There’s a lot going on in life to be bothered with the noisome pettiness of things that aren’t worth the time of your life. Let go and move on!

♥ When you impart positive knowledge you influence eternity. You have no idea where the influence ends due to its ripple effects. Don’t stop imparting.

♥ Practice kindness for Providence never forgets.

♥  Who will change it? It’s you and I.

♥ Your plans are not as important as what you’ve done. Get doing!

 Today’s thoughts came in from beautiful thinkers:

Killing fear: I like letting quotes like this sink in and repeat.

Step by step leap: Rosema keep’s it sweet and straight to the heart.

Consideration: understand, respect…simple message, yet impactful.

Stress-free zone: Nothing like family to be there when we need them. A positive vibe filled post.

♦ Sometimes, we have to cover our physical sight to see the silver linings in the dark clouds that hover.

♦ When the external heat of life gets too hot, you must keep working at your internal cooling system.

♦ Going with the ordinary flow may sound easy, but sometimes you are washed to the wrong direction. So while flowing, take a paddle with you to steer your course.

♦ Each day, you must remind yourself of what you actually want out of life and keep that vision before your eyes as you take another tiny step in that direction.

♦ Have you been stretching your vision lately? Why not? Don’t settle for laxity.

This week’s thoughts have been sent in by:

Kings oracle This short and sweet post from Oba couldn’t have said it better 🙂

Dollops of heedful rambling This is such a beautiful quote *my first time of reading it* and its truth leaves you mindful.

A purpose-driven achiever Lady Cee joins us with her sage words brings it home to me.

I really enjoy these conscious musings, because sometimes life is just so frenetic that it simply races along with us. These thoughts keep me grounded and help me more than words can say.

My regards,

Jacqueline
