You don't have to be happy or feel positive all the time. You're human not a robot!
If I or someone you really cared for asked you if you could spare them half hour today to help them with something really important and it has to be done today, would you find them half hour?

Your current situation is not your final destination - Always remember that!

Positive Affirmations are things we say to ourselves that build us up and make us strong. They empower us to take chances and to be our best. Thoughts run through our mind thousands of times a day and are often negative. Making positive affirmations a daily practice gives you a powerful tool to strengthen your inner foundation and follow your bliss.
Get over feeling funny.
- Doing something new takes practice and because it is unfamiliar it might feel funny at first.
- Get over it. So often, it doesn't feel funny to talk negatively to ourselves, but praise feels awkward. Just do it and don't worry if it feels funny. In time, you will feel less and less awkward.
Begin your affirmation with "I."
- The more you personalize what you say the more it will hit home and stick.
Put your affirmation in the present tense.
- Keeping the statement in the present will give it more power. Avoid can, will, could or should in your statements.
Make it short and sweet.
- Make the affirmation meaningful to you. If affirmations are too long, you may find it cumbersome or difficult to say on a regular basis. Longer affirmations work well during meditative moments.
- Teaching our inner voice to speak well to us takes some practice. For most people it is an under developed muscle. Practice and your affirming voice will become stronger.
- Hold a clear vision of what is possible for you in your life. Picture yourself absorbing the positive affirmations as they become a part of you.
Write it down.
- Writing down the positive affirmations helps your mind remember the new statements.
Repeat them often.
- Repetition facilitates learning. The more often you say positive affirmations the more they become a part of you.
Make them fun.
- Enjoy yourself with them. Laugh and hold out a sense of lightness.
Remember to be gentle.
- Remember that the more you nourish and cherish yourself the better able you are to live a life you love. Be patient and loving as you learn something new.
Here are a few affirmations to start with:
I love myself.
I have a beautiful figure.
I listen with love to my body’s message.
I deserve the best and I accept the best now.
I can see the me I want to be.
I am slim, trim, and lead a healthy lifestyle.
I know that I count and I act as if I do.
The quality of my life depends only on me.
I am powerful and I love it.

I've had a relatively undisturbed night thankfully, although been awake since 4am, moms still asleep I thrilled to say, she so needs her rest, I'm guessing making sure she take her painkillers throughout the day is helping with the pain but as you can imagine tramadol has other side effects!

Journal Academy helps people get the most from journaling, gets people trying different ways to journal and we have group sessions. Helps people to maximise the benefits of keeping a journal (of which there are many!)" sounds like a plan to me lol. I think we should all journal in some way or another.

A satisfied life is better than a successful life, because our success is measured by others, our satisfaction is measured by our own soul, heart and mind.
You'd think because my blog is later than usual that would mean I'd had a good night - you'd be wrong lol, but I won't bore you with it again, lets just say I thought keeping her up a bit longer and going to bed a bit later might make her stay in bed a bit longer - I was wrong!
Anyways it's Monday and I've already stripped and remade mom's bed, I am going to tackle the housework today, I've put it off all weekend, but no more, the hoover will be found and used!
Yesterday's virtual workshop went well, always good to see everybody on a Sunday morning, even if the rest of the morning was truly difficult with mom, she's not good at all and I'm glad yesterday's done. I did lift her a little as the day went on but I wished her leg would bloody heal, I really do, she's got enough on her plate with the Alzheimer's and Vascular Dementia without adding more to it!
I cooked a lovely lamb dinner and that was the highlight of my day, not gonna lie! Got some work done though so that's a bonus. Hoping to get a good walk in with Alfie today and I think I might dig out the slow cooker and through some stuff in there. We'll see.
I'm just trying to be better than the person I was yesterday, I'm in competition with no-one, I have no desire to pay the game of being better than anyone, I just want to be better and do better.
I had a chat with a lovely lady yesterday and we talked about her making improving herself a project, I love this idea, my mates know I love a project and in a year where we've all been blindsided by Covid, where we may have forgotten why we joined WW in the first place, this could be a great idea for the rest of the year. Project ME!
I suggested a vision board, I've not done one of these for a long time, what and why do a vision board? It focuses you on what's important, it can be really helpful if you're struggling with your WHY.
The process of creating your vision board is just as important as the actual board itself. Take some time out to look through magazines, papers or online for images and words, this will help you get focused and dream big. It's fun to do and also gives you a visual reminder for the rest of the year of your goals. You can put your board where you can see it it and refer to it and change if required.
Get yourself a board - it could be from the side of a cardboard box, a cork noticeboard or if you're more pc savvy you could use Pinterest to create yours. I like the idea of glue sticks / scissors / mags / pens / scrapbook stuff. It's a great Sunday afternoon or day off on a drab day thing to do.
When completed you could take a photo of it and have it as your screensaver on your phone, or print a smaller version out to carry round in your purse.
Ooo we could have a virtual zoom vision board party to share them when we've done them or to share ideas and chat about it all whilst doing it. Ooo last year we did a Crafternoon for Mind to raise funds, this year that's more important than ever, so maybe this could be the theme! A virtual crafternoon on Zoom, they say December 5th, leave that with me! I'm all over this idea! Start collecting your magazines and newspapers! Let me know your thoughts!
Anyway, I'm gonna go make me another cuppa, I've got stuff to clean - boo! I've got other stuff to do too, a busy Monday for me I reckon.
Let's start this week off positive and give ourselves a fighting chance.
Mwah, luv ya
Love me xx

Well my alarm this morning was mom continually bouncing her walking stick on the tile floor then screaming 'GOD!' because of the pain she's in. District nurses coming today, dreading what her legs gonna look like from how she's behaving this morning! I hope her pain killers kick in soon!
Just checked my fitbit, I have managed 6 hours sleep, so 4am start isn't the end of the world when I don't have to go out to work today, who knows I might get to snooze at some point - I won't hold my breathe though.
