Weekly Inspiration Roundup Vol. 22


Welcome to the show weekend! I’m so excited to be going to see a Christmas play and also to get in some spiritual time. How will you spend your weekend? As always, I bring you the weekly inspiration roundup. This edition covers a range of topics, from self-love to a message about going from bystander to upstander to stop violence against women. Read on for more of what the blogging community has written this week:

Motivate and inspire through writing

Love… Me

We may be open to telling others we love them but are we doing the same for ourselves? Let’s make self-love a priority, as per the Potlucky blog. This beautiful post contains quote cards that I think would be great to print and sit at the side of your desk or elsewhere in your home. This message is especially relevant during this busy holidays season.

Free the Emotions

Are you showing your emotions freely? This inspiring blog post from AmyRose, titled Freeing Emotional Me, is heartfelt and heartbreaking, all at the same time. I’ve known people who suppress emotions, and Amy is talking about herself, her struggles, here, and how she now understands how to love freely from her heart. It must have taken such courage to publish this one.

December Eating and Your Health

Going to another Christmas party? With such yummy (and likely fat-coated) foods around us in December, it can be difficult to keep a check on our health. If unhealthy eating is something that concerns you, this post on festive feasting from Lianne Marissa is a good one to dive into now. The tips can help you get through the Xmas season with a better grip on healthy snacking and meals.

Peace of Mind – Is it Possible?

The world is on super-speed it seems, and this inspirational blog post from Charlotte at Mindfully Untitled is one to slow down and read. Ironically, it’s about how to achieve peace of mind in such hectic surroundings. As she explains, peace is always around us, we just have to recognize it. From meditation to creativity and solitude, there are many useful suggestions here for inviting peace into your life.

Stopping Violence Against Women

Sadly this type of post still needs to be published. It’s one about stopping violence against women and calls out those who are bystanders. The point is to be an upstander instead – in other words, taking a more active role to end the violence. The main theme: Interrupt and Intervene. The share is from The Catalysts for Change blog, with the original post written by Regina of The Pixel Project’s “16 For 16” Campaign.

Yoga Movements

Are you a yogi? Learn yoga moon salutation moves in this blog post from Bridie of the inspiring blog The Wellbeing Warrior. She suggests these poses if you feel stressed – as most of us do in December – and want to achieve a better balance from within.

Poetry – Ah, the Moment

Take a moment, explains Alexis Rose in a new poem. I love the message of love for the self and that which surrounds us, including beautiful nature. Alexis and her Untangled blog is one I’ve been following for a while now, and she never fails to leave me thinking deeply about mental health issues, motivation, and the power we have to make this world a better place.
