Another great week of writing is closing in on us and with it comes the weekly inspiration roundup! I am blessed to be able to read the wonderful blog posts you all publish. I also am thankful for those people who come here to read this blog o’ mine. Now, onto the inspiring blog posts of the week:
Maya Angelou’s Wisdom
I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings is a beautiful poem by Maya Angelou. In today’s world, this poem is more relevant than ever, so I’m glad to see it shining brightly on the Sarcastic Beauty Queen blog.
I encourage you to head over there to read it in full. The birds that Maya writes about are not really birds; they are metaphors for social inequalities and, unfortunately, remind us that not everyone has freedom.
Rather than looking for love from another person, start with loving yourself. Sometimes we lose ourselves, which the blog called It Gets Better Mental Health discusses in the inspiring blog post Learning To Love Yourself.
The words, “I based my sense of self-worth, on whether or not my partner loved, and wanted me” were ones I could relate to from a past relationship, and it’s not a way that I want to feel again. This is a good read about achieving self-love and the importance of it!
Richa Pandey publishes thoughtful posts. She is also a very friendly blogger who makes a point to leave comments on other peoples’ posts that show she’s really reading what we write online.
Her post Gratitude – A Magic is lovely as it speaks to recognizing what we have to be thankful for in our lives. She explains that one reason why gratitude is magical is that expressing it can bring a smile to someone else’s face.
Decisions, Set to Poetry
As you’re coming to decisions, you might write a few down after tossing them around in your head for a while. Maybe they’ll turn into an inspiring poem like I decided today that… on the Memories of a Loving Mom blog.
It is so genuine, including the line, “I will try to be the better version of myself that my children make me want to be.” We are all striving to be the best we can be, and we all make mistakes along the way. Let’s just keep trying.
As Remembrance Day is tomorrow here in Canada – the US calls it Veteran’s Day – I wanted to include it here in the roundup. Thank you to all who have and continue to serve their countries ♥
Thank you too to all who have written about this important day, including Stevie Turner, who showed us a beautiful church in the UK that commemorates Remembrance Day. The photos and write-up combine for a very touching tribute.
