My intent is to inspire everyone with a weekly post that I call PROJECT ENCOURAGEMENT. I’m very thankful that https://mcguffysreader.com does this and asks anyone who wants to do a Sparks Post to join them. I’m joining them for another Sparks Monday with some encouraging and motivating words.
My Sparks Post today is of encouraging and motivating words from a HALLS cough drop wrapper I unwrapped due to a bad cold I’m recovering from. Before I always unwrapped the cough drop and threw away the wrapper. I never noticed these words and phrases before but if you look close you find encouraging words and phrases on the HALLS cough drop wrapper.
Below are some encouraging and motivating words and phrases.
ENCOURAGING AND MOTIVATING WORDS AND PHRASES
CONQUER TODAY.|DUST OFF AND GET UP.|BE RESILIENT.|IT’S YOURS FOR THE TAKING.|MARCH FORWARD.|
MY SPARKS FOR THE WEEK IS ENCOURAGING ADVICE. THIS IS ADVICE WE ALL SHOULD TAKE AND REMEMBER.My encouraging advice to everyone is to remember that we’ve all failed at one time or another in our lifetime and if you haven’t failed yet you eventually will. When you do fail you will feel like giving up. My suggestion to you is DON’T GIVE UP!! How is this encouraging? It’s encouraging because failure at something we desire to have or want really, really bad means one thing and one thing only and that is that we are headed in the right direction to get what we want and sometimes we find that we are blessed with something better than we wanted. Also, always remember that the Big named people at Big named companies didn’t get to the top overnight. Another thing to remember is that they had to fail multiple times before making it big so don’t worry if you fail multiple times. http://mcguffysreader.com started this project and tries to spread encouragement weekly. She also invites anyone who wants to help her spread encouragement. If you like this post and/or site please use the contact form and it will be put in manually. Thanks In Advance.
While I was thinking about what to do for Sparks I had a thought and that thought was why don’t you do something with the meaning of encouragement. Of course I tried and tried to come up with something else but all I could think of was wanting Spring to get here and the sunshine and the pretty flowers to stay for a while. Then I said to myself, flowers that’s it I’ll do it on flowers. So I looked up on the internet to see what flowers are associated with encouragement and friendship and this is what I found. I have included their meanings as well.
ENCOURAGEMENT AND FRIENDSHIP FLOWERS AND THEIR MEANINGS:
Due to the fact of so many, furfriends, loved ones passing lately I made up a brief flower list for that to in honor of them.
FLOWERS OF SADNESS AND THEIR MEANINGS:
My information and some of my pictures are from Flower Meanings, A – Z Flower Dictionary and Flower Pictures , Flower Meanings Chart and Guide to Unique Gift Giving , Images of The Galax Flower and the Graphic Credit for the Purple Hyacinth goes to http://fineartamerica.com.
https://mcguffysreader.com/ has a project called Sparks post each week. I decided to join this project with McGuffy’s Reader to encourage others each week. My encouragement post is called ENCOURAGEMENT. On March 4, 2018, I was reading my morning devotions with the Lord and guess what? The devotional reading was called Dying for Encouragement. In a nutshell, it was about a corporate accountant who committed suicide and no-one knew why. He didn’t embezzle money and that made his co-workers wonder why until a note was found and that note simply said this: In thirty years I have never had one word of encouragement. I’m fed up. My ENCOURAGEMENT quotes and reading are: It may seem insignificant to say a word or two; but when we give encouragement, what wonders it can do! —K. DeHaan— My second ENCOURAGEMENT quote is: A word of encouragement can make the difference between giving up or going on. —Author Unknown— The reading for encouragement is Deuteronomy 3:23 – 29. So when you think your encouragement isn’t doing any good, think again. It is. When you encourage some someone make sure it is genuine encouragement(not flattery) and it will help others.
We all need encouragement daily and I found these encouraging words to be helpful and hope they are helpful and are an inspiration to you. Below is my Spark.
Hope is a rainbow that appears out of nowhere on a sunny day~Hope is a mentor supporting and encouraging you when others put you down~Hope is your parents who support you even though you have huge dreams~Hope is a stranger who befriends you and takes you under their wing~Hope is a dog that meets you at the door when you come home~Hope is a cat that warns you with its hissing and body language~Hope is a
sister that helps you out of ‘sticky’ situations~Hope is a loving family~Hope is knowing and teaching sign language to people who need and want to learn it~Hope is God.
So when your feeling down remember there is hope for you. Don’t let any anybody tell you differently.
Why I’m Writing This Post:
I’m writing this post because I came across this good blog post that spreads Positive Thinking and I liked the idea so I’d thought I write this post.
Today we need all the positive thinking we can muster. But we shouldn’t just think about doing positive thinking but we should take every opportunity to show positive thinking and even create positive thinking where there isn’t any.
CREATING POSITIVE THINKING:
Creating positive thinking also helps with your attitude. If you don’t have a good attitude then you’re less likely to have a positive outlook but remember this it takes more wrinkles to create a frown then to create a smile. So smile because who wants all those wrinkles.
I wrote a post called WHAT MEETING MAYA ANGELOU DID FOR ME because Maya Angelou was a wonderful woman and very encouraging to. Below are some quotes of hers and another encouraging person who is P.K. Hallinan. The one quote is by an unknown source.
Make sure you have a smile on your face because people will wonder what you’re up to and your attitude will be a lot better.
Stay positive my friends.
