I had my first feel good blog day today as I got my first tag today from a very lovely lady (also with twins, so I have an immediate affinity to her) who writes Mummy from the heart. She has asked me to be part of one word Meme or wonder as some others are calling it! Her reasons for tagging me are that she would like to get to know me better and I thought, well, this seems a great way to get to know others as I am all very new to this so why not give it a go! It also gives you ’lovely’ people (no bribed tone at all!) to say exactly what you think of me…under the crucial guideline of one word!
So this is the full story, where it all began so to speak, from the Mummy at heart herself:
This got me thinking about an email I received a few years back, one of those circular things that I normally hate but this one I loved and have never forgotten. It was about the power of positive affirmations and how knowing what positive things others think of you can boost your own self-esteem. It talked of an inspirational teacher who got all her children to write one positive word down to describe the other children in the class and then they had to hand them in. The teacher then collated all the positive words for each child into a special sheet for them and handed it to them to read and keep. They learnt that their peers saw them in ways they had never imagined and it had an immense effect on them. The story goes that one of them died and a number of them attended the funeral and it was found that they all still had their lists 20 or so years later as they had been really touched by this loving gesture. Did this really happen? Who knows, but I love the sentiment of this story and therefore it does not matter to me if it was real.
Well, what about if us bloggers and virtual friends did something similar?
So here it goes! I am being brave and opening myself up to you all! Please keep it swear free!
I shall start: Multiple Mummy is….
I am tagging in,(in the hope that they will do it too)
These lovely ladies have all being a super starting support and apart from the very brilliant Mummy loves all very new to the blogging game!
