Be who you are, not who the world wants you to be ~ Positive Thinking

PositiveThinking be who you are not who the world wants you to be wellbeing mental health gratitude happiness happy blog linky virtually all sorts

This blog is all about turning any negative into a positive.

And this linky is all about positive thinking – each month I focus on an inspirational, motivational, positive quote.

This month, remember that you should…

Be who you are, not who the world wants you to be

We all benefit from just being ourselves and that comes with loving ourselves.  Do you ever feel like you’re playing to the ‘tune’ of others?

I’d love to hear from you. Tweet me @AllSortsHere using the hashtag #PositiveThinking.

Let’s create a virtual wave of positivity!

#PositiveThinking is my monthly blog linky.


Link up any blog post with a positive and happy theme (and it’d be great if you could copy my badge below into your post).  Perhaps your positive thought could be connected to a goal you have in mind, something funny you’ve heard or something funny you’ve seen.  If it’s got a PositiveThinking theme, it works for this linky.  Old or new posts, it doesn’t matter – link up as many as you like.  

The linky door is always open.

~

Also join me on twitter.  Tweet anything positive and/or promote your positive blogpost (the one you link up!) with #PositiveThinking and include a direct tweet to me @AllSortsHere… I’ll share by retweeting.

Let’s get the positive vibrations going good and strong 🙂

Time for a dose of happiness in #HighlightsofHappy blog linky #31 ~ because life’s for the good stuff

Your weekly dose of happiness…

Let’s spread the happiness!

It’s a common phrase isn’t it?…

“Bad things come in 3’s”

or words similar to that!

So, let’s flip it (you know how I love to spread happiness and turn a negative into a positive with positive thinking !) because everyone deserves a little happiness …

Let’s spread that happiness and find 3 things to be grateful for!

(or even more… I mean, why not?!)

Time For A Dose Of Happiness In #HighlightsofHappy Blog Linky #31 Because Life's For The Good Stuff

In my weekly feature, I look back over my gratitude journal because that’s the great thing about gratitude and using my gratitude journal – it gives me the opportunity to look back and be grateful all over again 🙂  That’s why, in my weekly feature, I look back and bring to you my #HighlightsofHappy.

I round it off with one word that sums up my happy…  why not do the same?  If you’re a blogger, why not share your happy post from the last week or so?  If you’re on instagram, why not tag your happy snap #HighlightsofHappy and link up your pic here?  If you’re on twitter, why not tweet your happy?  If you’re all 3, why not do all 3??  The linky is below. (To link your insta happy snap, simply click on your insta pic, copy the url and paste into the linky tool!)

(If you join in with my #HighlightsofHappy community on instagram, I post up my favourite snaps every Monday on instagram.  You can join in with highlightsofhappy on instagram – share your happy in a giveaway)


…so what’s been making ME happy?

Well, as I’ve already shared my latest highlights in a previous post, I thought that, because I’ve sort of converted the feature into this linky, I’d copy and paste to save you clicking over to it!  (but feel free to visit the post again – time for some happy in my highlightsofhappy 30 )

The previous word was ‘better’ and I may have jumping the gun a little.  Because although I feel okay in myself, I’ve been very tired and my throat has been red raw but no spots, thank goodness!  (That was me turning the bad into the positive!)

It’s been half term where we are, and I’ve had some quality time with our daughter, as I shared on instagram…

A surprise package arrived.  Off I went to the post office to pick it up, expecting it to be something completely different… and it was something very exciting for my blog, which I will share very soon.  Surprises are so exciting.  When they’re the right kind!

Lots of chocolate featured this week, which is always good isn’t it?  I just need to add a candle or 2 into the mix now!

~

So that’s my happy and my happy word is ‘quality’ because our daughter is growing up oh-so-quickly.  She has literally grown in front of my eyes, or so it seems!  And while I truly hope we can still have quality time, hot chocolate and muffins in a cafe when she’s older, I’m soaking up these moments for now…  they really make me smile 🙂

How about you?  I’d love to hear about your ‘happy’ in the comments below or tweet me @AllSortsHere using #HighlightsofHappy

Go on, share your happy with me!

Thanks 🙂

Love is about this for me… what do YOU think love is?

As a teenager, I used to secretly hope for a Valentine’s Day card from my secret love.  It never happened though!
I did get a card one year from a boyfriend but that’s been about my fill!

 

As I’ve grown up, I’ve come to realise that love isn’t all about chocolate and flowers (though I wouldn’t say no to them any day of the week… I’ll even buy them myself.  I mean, why not?!)
Love is about this for me…
What do you think love is full wellbeing happiness valentines day virtually all sorts

 

In our house…
Love is all about having a lingering, tight hug every day.
Love is all about us telling our daughter what an amazing person she is and using empowering words.  Every. Single. Day.
Love is all about having group hugs.
Love is all about clearing the negative energy that comes into our home; the energy that clings on to us on a daily basis.
Love is all about us loving each other in our house and then leaving the house happy, full of our own and each other’s love and sharing that love.
Love is free – it’s not about chocolates, flowers or cards (though the chocolates and flowers would still be nice!)
Love is simple and free… it’s about nurturing the right energy and making space for it 🙂

 

What do you think love is?  All positive thoughts are welcome!  Share them in the comments below or tweet me @AllSortsHere 🙂

For a lovely walk with my 2 favourite people in the whole wide world 🙂

5 ways to ground yourself and control anxiety

Do you or someone you know experience anxiety?  Then you need 

5 ways to ground yourself and control anxiety…

5 ways full to ground yourself and control anxiety virtually all sorts wellbeing

Look at happy pictures.  My ‘Smile, give your face a work-out’ pinterest board never fails to, well make me smile!  There are quite a few cute cat ones on there but the rest are just random ones that I’m sure will make you laugh from the belly.  You’re welcome 🙂

 

Surround yourself with positive people.  And if you’re limited to social contact for whatever reason (due to sleeping children at night-time or isolation perhaps due to illness), then you can join in with forums or even pinterest boards.  My ‘Just Wow’ board may literally take your breath away.  When I’m pinning away, I’m saying ‘wow’ and bam, it ends up on my board.  The beauty will at least help you forget your anxiety for a while.

 

Read positive things ~ blogs, books, inspirational quotes, the Positive Moment Project pinterest board.

This picture from Two Tiny Hands was taken from there 5 ways to ground yourself and control anxiety virtually all sorts wellbeing…and don’t you just love it?!

 

Breathe ‘properly’ ~ meditate, practice yoga, use crystals.

 

Use a grounding rock ~ Mine is called my ‘gratitude rock’ and it works really well for me.  It’s whichever crystal I have on my person on any given day.  By physically touching it, I’m reminded of why it’s there, which helps to ground me.  I always make sure I’m using the right one for me on any given day.

 

Have you got any other ways to ground yourself?  All positive thoughts are welcome!  Share them in the comments below or tweet me @AllSortsHere 🙂

3 is it your magic number highlights of happy 27 gratitude journal grateful happiness positivity positive thinking snappy

…so what’s made me happy this week?

After seemingly endless questions about what I looked like when I was a baby, I unearthed my baby pics.  Actual physical ones that aren’t on a hard drive (showing my age!!).  And it inspired a blog post (of course!) about how you and your child can learn from history.

For making a big dent in some typing work I’ve undertaken.

For lovely sleep!  More please!

A yummy, very chocolatey pudding made by hubby and our daughter 🙂

For a safe journey on the road in the fog.  But please, please, please people, put your lights on!!

So that’s my happy this week and my happy word is ‘snappy’ because of the wonderful memories that looking through old photos brings!  But to keep that positive vibe going on, all the ‘plates’ have either stopped spinning or are under control now 🙂

How about you?  I’d love to hear about your ‘happy’ in the comments below or tweet me @AllSortsHere using #HighlightsofHappy

Go on, share your happy with me!

Thanks 🙂

Time for some happy in my #HighlightsofHappy #26

It’s a common phrase isn’t it?…

Bad things come in 3’s

or words similar to that!

So, let’s flip it (you know how I love to turn a negative into a positive!)

Let’s find 3 things to be happy and grateful for!

(or even more… I mean, why not?!)

3 is it your magic number highlights of happy 26 gratitude journal grateful happiness positivity positive thinking spinning

In my weekly feature, I look back over my gratitude journal and bring to you my #HighlightsofHappy , which is great because it gives me the opportunity to look back and be grateful all over again 🙂

I round it off with one word that sums up my happy…

(and don’t forget that you can join in with my #HighlightsofHappy on instagram linky and community.  I post up my favourite snaps every Monday and a new instagram linky goes live every Monday too!  Link up to the latest post here!)

…so what’s made me happy this week?

Well it’s been a peculiar week really.  It started off with an issue at school, which was a bit of come-down after last week’s Head Teacher award.  But I’m very grateful that our daughter can approach us, speak to us, knows that we’ll listen and knows that we’ll help her to take action.  Which we’ve done.  So that’s the positive out of the slightly negative.

I’m also happy to have arranged for 2 more of her friends to come round after school and at the weekend.  It’s so nice to hear her scheming playing nicely with her friends.

Our local shop is offering daily free fruit for children for the whole of January.  We’ve only just got around to signing up for it but we’ve just enjoyed our first free piece of fruit (today in fact!).  Our daughter loves fruit and eats plenty of it so doesn’t need any encouragement to consume it but it makes it slightly easier on our pocket.  Win, win!

I got everything, yes everything done on my list one day.  Wow, what a feeling!!  The rest of the week has just about made up for that small victory though!…

Not that I’m wishing time away but for various reasons, a massive amount has been going on here and truthfully, I’m very glad it’s gone quickly.  Hello weekend 🙂  THAT makes me happy!

~

So that’s my happy this week and my happy word is ‘spinning’ because at times I’ve really felt like my head’s spinning, that I’m in a bit of a whirlwind and that the plates are going to fall!  But to keep that positive vibe going on, all the ‘plates’ have either stopped spinning or are under control now 🙂

How about you?  I’d love to hear about your ‘happy’ in the comments below or tweet me @AllSortsHere using #HighlightsofHappy

Go on, share your happy with me!

Thanks 🙂
