Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 118

“Health is a state of body. Wellness is a state of being.” – J Stanford

Spidey is trying to gee me up this weekend as I am suffering from a horrendous sore throat at the moment. Who knows who gave it to me… One of the lovely children at school? Someone at home?

I don’t know that, but what I do know is that it hurts! It’s been a while since I had a sore throat, and I have been wallowing in my own misery today,  but I really need to buck up. I am getting rest, and relaxation, so I will get better. Positivity helps wellness I believe, just like paracetamol is great for health!

But we found this quote too, that raised a titter!

 

“I’d hate to be a giraffe with a sore throat!” – Mitch Hedberg

That’s me right now. Thanking God I am not a long necked animal!

So, I hope you all have a healthier weekend than me Peeps!

Enjoy your Sunday!

Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 117 – Mums…

“A mother understands what a child does not say.” Proverb

Seeing as it’s Mother’s Day in many other parts of the world, including the US of A where Spidey hails from, we thought why not celebrate it again!

I think there aren’t enough days in the year to truly celebrate what a mother is to us all.

The proverb above couldn’t ring more true for me anyway.

No matter where I am, what I am doing or how old I am, my mum always knows.

Whether I am feeling high as a kite, but haven’t said anything, or so low that I feel the ground will just rise above me, she knows.

It’s that mother’s intuition.

And she wont go rushing in hammer and tongs, asking me “What’s up? Why? Who? What? When?”

She just has that knack of saying the right thing to either allow me to open up, or to soothe my feelings.

She knows there are things I can’t tell her sometimes, or that I won’t, yet she still won’t push for information.

No interrogation.

Just that silent support.

She’s there for me. She always is.

And just as she can read my silence, I can feel her silent support.

Thank you Mum! ❤

Happy Mother’s Day!

Enjoy your Sunday Peeps! If you’re a mum, I hope you get appreciated for all you do! If your mum is still with you , make sure you show her how much she is loved. If your mum is being your silent support from above, look up, and thank her for still caring, even though she isn’t here.

For mums everywhere 🙂

“Sometimes you win, sometimes you learn.” – John Maxwell

What a great quote that Spidey found for me to muse upon this morning!

This speaks so much to me, especially after all the mindset training we have had at school recently.

It’s all about the way you look at things, isn’t it?

So you have all heard the old adage, ‘You win some you lose some.’

The initial quote by John Maxwell is a much more positive way of looking at a situation that didn’t quite work out.

Yes. There are times you lose.

But is losing really a bad thing?

Winning or succeeding is always going to be the goal we strive for, but seeing a situation not reach that goal doesn’t necessarily mean you have to see it as losing or a loss.

Whatever went wrong should be seen as a lesson learned. A way to improve for next time.

Not a negative thought, but a positive reaction to do better next time.

It’s not that we can’t do it, it’s more that we can’t do it yet.

Yet.

That is one of the key words in fostering a growth mindset.

Yes there are things that we can’t do, but if we remain positive and open minded, seeing failures as learning opportunities then we know that we can’t do it yet.

One day we will get there!

So Peeps, enjoy your Sunday and embrace any opportunity to try that ‘thing’ you can’t do yet. Keep trying and you’ll get there!

“My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me.” ― Jim Valvano

Last week I was nervous as anything, with that dang observation hanging over my head.

Deep down I knew I should be ok, but there was still an element of self doubt.

I guess that fear is not a bad thing. It means that you really care about whatever is going to happen.

But one thing I had behind me, was the support of my parents, husband and family.

My Pops and Mum have always been there, right behind me, believing in me from the off.

Once I had received my feedback and let everyone know how I got on, I got this message from Pops.

Yes… emoji use runs high in my whole family!

 

It touched me that no matter what, his faith in me is unerring.

And to have the backing of all these people who love me and believe in me, is a blessing indeed.

If I have one wish for you all Peeps, it would be that you also have someone who believes in you, behind you all the way.

Happy Sunday Peeps!
