Be Proud of Yourself

✨🌈✨ Happy Magic Monday my Fabulous Ones ✨🌈✨

Being proud of ones self is something I continually strive for! It used to be something I would run from and think of all the opposite things… very unhelpful! But now I am working on being proud of myself, it’s a very healthy quality to have!!

Who’s with me? Let’s kick off this week by finding things in ourselves we are proud of!πŸ˜˜πŸ’œπŸŒˆ

Moving out of your comfort zone

✨🌈 Happy Magic Monday my Fabulous Ones🌈✨

It’s always good to try things not in your comfort zone as you never know the outcome even if you think going know!

As part of my cerebral palsy my right hand is not as good in completing tasks. It becomes even more stiff and movements are then more involuntary. Because of this my left hand became my default hand to use.

For a time now I have been trying to use my right hand more. One of the ways that I trying to exercise my right hand is through painting πŸŽ¨πŸ’–πŸŒˆ

Never doubt you can’t improve because you CAN

Your Ability

βœ¨πŸ’œβœ¨HHHaaappy Magic Monday my Fabulous Ones βœ¨πŸ’œβœ¨

Today to kick off the first Magic Monday of 2019 I am sending you lots of positive rainbows happy vibes from my heart to yoursπŸ’–πŸŒˆπŸ’–

My Fabulous Ones you CAN do ANYTHING you want. No matter how crazy your wishes seem, there not crazy at all simply because you have formed that idea. Somewhere in your heart there is faith. Let that faith out shine fear. Ignore the naysayers who say you can’t. You ability isn’t defined by what you haven’t got it is determined by what you have and what you focus on.

My Cerebral Palsy doesn’t determine my ability my courage does; my courage to be resilient to try and try again . My courage to ignore doubt of others or even the sceptic that can creep up within me.My courage to ask for help when needed. My courage to be curious to find out the answer to the question β€˜what if?’

What determines your ability? πŸ’œπŸŒˆπŸ’œ

It’s The Little Things

βœ¨πŸ’œβœ¨ Happy Magic Monday my Fabulous Ones βœ¨πŸ’œβœ¨

It’s the little things that can bring so much joy to you day and can give you so much encouragement πŸ’œ @emilycoxhead happy jar is filled with positive notes and can be little pick-me-ups especially on those days that don’t feel that magic. These are the first two notes I have picked out. I get so excited every time I pick out a new one ✨Thank you so much @mermaiidmairead for this beautiful giftπŸ˜˜πŸŒˆπŸ’œβœ¨

You Are The Creative!!

Have you ever felt rebellious? That you want to rip up the rule book? Well if your anything like me the answer would be yes, but making a noise seem hugely frightening. Doing something that you fear means you should do it all the more! There is no right way do things (only when making tea-water before milk guys there is no other way πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰). Seriously though how you do things should only feel right for you.

This Monday start making your happiness a priority πŸŒˆπŸ˜˜πŸ’œπŸŒˆβœ¨

Spread Kindness

πŸ’œβœ¨πŸ’œ Happy Magic Monday My Fabulous Ones πŸ’œβœ¨πŸ’œ As we enter autumn and it gets a little colder (sitting here in my woolies) we can forget how this season can also have an impact on our mental health – this time of year can be particularly triggering for people that suffer with their mental health so it’s really important that we are all aware of this ✨ In September 2016 something happened that I never thought could happen. My gorgeous sister had seemed β€˜a bit down β€˜ for some time but I never knew the extent or that it would turn out that she would be diagnosed with depression. No one would have known that behind her smile and the rainbows she adorns herself in that she was suffering – not even me and I live with her.

It is so important that we really make sure if the people around us are actually okay. It is only when people get talking and ending stigmas, that the importance of mental health can be kept alive. Mairead describes living with depression as like β€˜living in a body with a mind that’s trying to die.’ No one should have to face feelings like this alone.

One thing we can all do is practice kindness, smile at strangers and say kind words, remind the loved ones in your life why they are so special, say and send kind messages to people you care about. If you think something lovely about someone why don’t you tell them? So this magic Monday let’s celebrate kindness ✨ If you are struggling right now please talk to someone, there are also so many wonderful communities where you can seek help such as @mindcharity and @mh_stories_ is also a wonderful online platform where you can find support 😘 Thank you @mermaiidmairead for allowing me to share your story 🌈❀️

Take Your Time

πŸ’œβœ¨πŸ’œ Happy Magic Monday my Fabulous Ones πŸ’œβœ¨πŸ’œ

Always remember to take time for you to be the best that you can be you can be. It’s okay to have time out. It’s okay to switch off for a while. It’s okay to do things differently and perhaps not even do them things at all. Take your time. Make your move when you are ready and don’t judge yourself when you doπŸ’œπŸŒˆπŸ’–πŸ’œ
