MY FAVOURITE POST FOR JULY IS ‘DEAR JULY’ FROM ‘NURTURE THYSELF’…

My favourite post for July is ‘Dear July‘ from the blog ‘Nurture Thyself’, Empowerment, Self-Awareness and Mindfulness.

This post for July was really touching and started with … hug me, I want to feel your heart beat. Something I am desperate for from my daughter who has her second injection in August and promised me an extremely long hug after nine months of pregnancy shielding.

The beautiful words and images in this post and all the other posts makes you feel as if she is writing directly to you. ‘Be brave, darling dear. Be brave. Everything you wish for, believe, and it will come to you.’ How many times do we say this to at least one of our loved ones.

We have all been through a tough time over the last 18 months, more worse than others but without doubt the situation has touched every single persons heart. In the post Nuture Thyself included a lovely quote and wrote ‘This July is all about success, bravery and dusty, dreamy mornings. Things working out exactly as supposed to. It’s about inner freedom, inner light. Not getting lost in thoughts, but objectively watching them pass by.’

Who is the writer? Well her name is Linda and wrote this on her About Me page –

I love the the taste of coffee in the morning. Breakfast in bed, and forgotten books. I love working out, to be strong. Feeding my body delicious, nutritious foods, providing my being with healthy energy. I love curious minds, capturing moments. The feeling of confidence. Poetry. I love sleepy, needy puppies. The power of words. To write. I love the early hours, a light pink sky. A gentle breeze. To stretch. I love spending time alone, quieting the mind. Self-growth. Art. I love travelling, exploring the world. Observing people. The ocean. Outer space. I love snowy mountains. Mother Nature. The animals.

I love being me. But most of all, I wish to connect with you. Humans. 

What a lovely way to welcome July and hopefully August and many months after that. Thanks Linda, I really enjoyed your post. I have ended this post with a lovely inspirational quote.

“When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.” – Marcus Aurelius

“BACK PAIN BLOG UK” LISTED IN 100 BEST BLOGS FOR DISABLED PEOPLE AND CARERS…

I was delighted to hear that Back Pain Blog UK was chosen to go in at number 8 of the 100 Best Blogs for Disabled People and Carers by Aid Excel Support Parents/Carers of Children/Young People with Disabilities/Additional Needs.

Having people really appreciating what you write about and then being added to a best blogs list is always something all us bloggers will feel really grateful for. We write for our readers and hope our posts will help or support someone with health problems.

Aid Excel Support Parents/Carers of Children/Young People with Disabilities/Additional Needs, works is a parent led organisation staffed by volunteers who are trained to provide information and advice on a range of issues faced by families with disabled children.  These include accessing benefits, finding services and developing skills. Sometimes it can just be a matter of helping with form filling – all that jargon can be so confusing. Or it could involve putting parents in touch with one another to share their experiences. Other times it could be supporting a parent at a meeting with their child’s school.

AidExcel also work with local organizations to make sure that the needs of parents from minority groups are understood and considered when new services are planned, or when the local authority want to know what parents think. Their vision and objectives are to ensure that all children and young people with special educational needs and all disabled children have equal opportunity within their schools and community, for their needs to be met for them to be included fully in their schools and community.

If you have any spare time you can support them by telling people about them. As a volunteer led organisation they are dependent on the time, talents and money that they can attract.

They have leaflets and newsletters available, so if there is someone you know who would benefit from their services then please pass the message on.

You can also donate, share or volunteer. You can find out lots more on the AidExcel website.
