Pick Me Up Friday’s☺️😊

It’s that time of the week again in Aotearoa (New Zealand) where I share some goodwill with my readers and friends to end the week and start the weekend! I hope you are all keeping safe wherever you are and being kind to each other! It’s a tough month at my end of the road with a COVID lockdown and the virus spreading throughout my country 🙁 So goodwill is sorely needed!

I found this nice little quote which I thought sends a wonderful message:

Please let me know what you’re getting up to in your spare time! I hope you are all doing well and that your families are safe 🙂

Catch you in the next post or in the comments, my friends!

Been a little while for a Pick Me Up Friday since I started obsessing over funny star wars memes 😂 but back to the natural order of things on the Darkside!

So here are good wishes from me to you for the weekend coming! I hope you have a great end to your working week. It’s POURING down with rain here in New Zealand which just happens to be my favourite kind of weather, actually lol 😂

I hope you stay safe and happy with your family and/or friends this weekend, and let me know what interesting things you get up to! Spread the happy 😁😃

Catch you in the next post, my friends!

Gidday, everyone, and welcome to another “Pick Me Up Friday” with yours truly! It has been a little while since I’ve been able to blog another Pick Me Up Friday post, but I’m feeling extremely optimistic today, and I wanted to share that with my friends and dear readers.

Happiness is best shared (that’s what I think anyway) so on with the sharing 😄

Hi all, and welcome to another Pick Me Up Friday. This is the second attempt at this post because the first one wasn’t very “pick me uppy”, so I am writing this one instead! I hope you are all doing well and if not, let me know in the comments! “A burden halved is a burden shared”, as they say.

So here’s today’s pretty graphic for you all – does this resonate with you on any level?

It’s nice to get out of your own head for a minute and spend time looking at the people around you. Are they your kids, friends, cousins or significant other? Are they influenced by the good things you do? I hope they are! Because it’s true – you never know who is watching and finding inspiration in what you do. How great does it feel to inspire others? Pretty wonderful, I think! 😊😁 No matter how small, hopefully, it can help someone else feel better about themselves and aspire to do great things.

Have a great weekend! I am heading into a long weekend in New Zealand as it is Queens Birthday Weekend here, and I get FOUR wonderful days off! I am really looking forward to it 🙂

Until next time my friends, stay safe and creative and I’ll catch you in the next post!

Pick Me Up Friday’s – Positive Thinking☺️😊

Hey there, everyone! It’s another Friday in Aotearoa, which means it’s time to think about positivity and its role in our lives. That sounded a little too serious, but I’ve got a nice little quote today taken straight from the positive affirmations I read daily:

Not sure what to believe in? Believe in yourself. You have the power to design your thoughts, design your happiness, and design your life.

Design.org

This is the website that I found by doing a search online for positive affirmations. I really like this website because apart from having a free service (they have paid services, but I haven’t subscribed as yet), they deliver daily affirmations. You can also check out different parts of their website for goal setting and mainly just staying on track in your life with positivity guiding your way. And I like the idea of that.

I am one of the most sceptical people you’ll meet (believe it or not, lol). I question everything; sometimes, I go overboard and overthink things. I get this trait from my Dad as he was the same. My curiosity has led me to be untrustworthy of many things by default, so I am not the typical type of person that would get behind a website like this. But I do. And I am happy I let my guard down and allowed myself to grow positively.

And I have to say since I have started taking affirmations seriously, I have noticed that a lot of positive things have happened to me just by believing in myself a lot more instead of doubting myself.

Maybe this is what people mean when you invite positivity in and in turn, give positivity back to whomever you can. You will be rewarded. I know it sounds silly, which is exactly why I have never followed “positivity gurus’ or believed in that stuff. I have started with the most simplistic thing, and I have seen real, tangible results just by reading positive affirmations to myself.

And if I can do it, anyone can. If you’re doubtful and think it’s silly and won’t work, what have you got to lose by trying? Prove yourself wrong (or right) and if it’s not for you, simply walk away.

But you need to be open to positive things happening, which means going outside of yourself. I know that sounds stupid, but I’ve seen nothing but good things coming into my life so far. Imagine if all it took was to believe in something other than negativity or “bad things always happening to you”. What if you just switched that around and thought of only “positive things happening to you?”

Something to think about, am I right?

Until next time my friends, stay safe and creative and I’ll catch you in the next post!
