Welcome Back

For todays kind words, I wrote a poem. Zoom in to see the words or scroll down for the written version. It can be a challenging time of year, for so many of us. For a variety of reasons, time moves quicker for some than for others. Some people can feel forgotten. If time got away from you this season, please keep reading and share a link to this post with someone you are missing or thinking about today.

You are not forgotten, I am thinking about you
I am thinking of you poem

If you don’t feel like writing, perhaps send a link to this page, or share the photo above.

I’ll type it out too, as the light wasn’t kind for the photo, and not sure screen readers will read words on photographs. Do let me know about the screen reader thing, as I’m figuring out the best way to share some more poems going forwards.

I am thinking about you

If you’re feeling, sad and blue

And think, that I forgot,

I promise you, that its not you,

I’m just going through a lot.

*

Please, don’t count your worth,

In cards, or likes, or presents by a tree.

And know you’re worth, much more than that

To everyone, and me.

*

If there’s someone in your life, today

Who you miss, with all your heart,

Even if a cirucumstance, has kept you both apart.

Just take a moment, send a heart, or a line or two.

*

A call or a text message, could mean the world, from you.

You don’t have to be a poet, just tell it like it is,

That you are glad, they are in, your life

No matter where that is.

*

The world won’t always, be like this

We will, find safer ground,

Then we can, get together,

When we all, can gather round.

*

If not hand in hand,

The side by side.

Together we’ll get through,

I promise you’re not forgotten,

I am thinking about you.

There are many reasons, why we loose touch with each other over time. Some are intentional, others often are not. Emails and addresses change and not everyone gets the reminder of the new one.

In a world based on goals or tasks we can measure, sometimes we get drawn into basing our worth, on what others think of us. But when you seek external validation, you are also giving those people the power to take away your happiness. Lets not do that.

This poem can a message for anyone who may be feeling forgotten, or who is worried they might have not sent a card. Perhaps you weren’t able to send cards, for whatever reason, and want someone to know they are remembered and thought of.

I put it in as a picture and wrote it out, to make it easier to share. I’d love a link back to this blog if you use this poem.

If you could do with hearing more kind words today, have a look at The Alternative Advent Project I’ve been writing about this month, please go to Day one, which I will link below. https://billiescraftroom.wordpress.com/2021/12/03/the-alternative-advent-project/

This project was about creating kind words for yourself, to help you through the season. It wasn’t a grinch list, not judging, correcting, blaming or shaming. I was only going to write the few words, then as ever, I struggle to do short so the extra words flowed. Have a look at the link above and see how you would like to do your version of this project.

I hope this project helped you through the season.

May today be as kind to you as possible.

Best wishes and thanks for reading, see you soon

PS, I scheduled these a while ago, so if I don’t make all the posts from now till 24th bear with me, health issues may challenge this. But I have another jolly project for the 12 Days of Christmas and they are all written, and scheduled will go live 25 December onwards. If I don’t see you before and you are celebrating Christmas rather than Yule, I wish you all the best and see you soon. x

For todays kind words, I wrote

Whatever you choose to do, or not do, is totally ok’

Reflection

Feeling the joys of the season, yey. Not so much n needing to hide n wait it out? Thats not easy to navigate is it. If you find yourself solo and not loving it, just know its ok if you want to sleep through it, to have beans on toast or cereal and not the traditional meal coz that’s not for you. Make it your own as best you can.

Lets try to be kind to ourselves and with each other, life is challenging enough, without adding impossibly high expectations that might not even be our own.

What kind words are you writing for yourself today? Do tell me about them in the comments below.

For todays kind words, I wrote

What is the snuggliest blanket or jumper you have, hunker down, snuggle up?’

Reflection

Not everyone has the joy of central heating, or even if they do, not everyone can afford to put it on. Weather you are feeling the chill due to temperature or feeling less than perky because you may be missing someone, a blanket wrapped around your shoulders can be an alternative way to feel like you are held. Lots of blankets n lots of layers also help keep out the physical drafts too.

So I in vite you to hunker down with the softest blanket or jumper you have and its totally ok to imaging it is someone giving you a warm hug.

Tell me about them in the comments below.

Welcome Back

For todays kind words, I wrote

Come and watch the clouds’

Reflection

Here is something I’ve noticed about anxiety, the world is fast (I know no *** sherlock) but when we run, things seem to get faster, the world gets faster still, so we run even faster. And so it repeats, for a short time that might be ok, but its damaging to live like this all the time. Doing this long term can take you to a point of exhaustion and burn out.

So lets take a second, take a few deep breaths and with or without your chosen beverage, come and look at the sky. Watch the weather, watch the clouds. No aim, no goal, no expectation. Just being still and regrouping a little.

What were your kind words to yourself today? Do tell me about them in the comments below.

For todays kind words, I wrote’ Delegate’

Reflection

The time of year is busy,hecktick and there can be times when an awful lot of things, can be down to just one person. Now thats a tradition worth changing isn’t it?

If you have the luxury of delegating, step back a bit from the outcome not being as you would do it yourself and pass the tasks around a bit.

What kind words do you have for yourself today? Tell me about them in the comments below.
