No arguments. Today is a happy day! Just accept that today is a happy day.
Even in times of sadness or hardship there will be a reason to smile. Just one smile can make a lot of difference and lift your spirits, so make the effort to find the thing that makes you happy today.
It could be something amazing that has taken you surprise... Like winning the lottery!
Or it could be something that value and gives you a purpose and strength... The love of your family. Aww, nice warm fuzzy feelings.
Or it could be a teeny tiny gesture from a stranger... Holding the door for you're running for cover from a rainstorm.
We're happy because it's nearly Christmas, we love Christmas In Abbotswood. It might have been a laborious task cutting out flyers but it shows that there's not long to wait until the big community event. Hooray!
So what makes you happy today?
If you ask yourself often enough, every day could become a happy day...
It's Motivational Monday again! Yay!
For anyone who may not already know we ran a photography competition in September. We had a few comments from people saying 'I'm not as good as the other photographers' or 'I don't have the skills for that'. Well, how do you know until you try? Why should we compare ourselves to others and lessen our opportunities in the process?
How often do you tell your friend that they're talented or beautiful? How often do you tell that same friend they stand as much chance in the world as anyone else, because we're all equal?
How often do you tell yourself the same thing?
So let's all agree to stop judging ourselves and thinking someone else is better. We all have our own paths to take and you never know where that path may lead.
Stop comparing yourself to others. If you really must compare yourself to someone, compare yourself to the person you were yesterday and aim a little higher tomorrow.
You might just be the person someone else admires...
Welcome to Motivational Monday!
Here at AAG we believe in being the change you want to see, so we're introducing motivational monday. A series of mini blog posts, on the first monday of the month, starting your month with a little glimmer of inspiration...
And we're starting with...
The occasional duvet day is well deserved, but what about when that turns into a duvet weekend... Or longer...
What promises did you make to yourself that have yet to be followed through? More quality time with friends and family? Making the jump and finding yourself a new job? Knocking a few pounds off the number on the weighing scale? Adding some pennies to the holiday fund? Now seems like a good time to tick off a few items on the personal to do list...
Come on folks! Let's get up, get active and get inspired!
We're with you all the way!
We have lots of things to talk about at Abbotswood Action Group. We're sure you do too, get in touch if you would like to be a guest blogger...
