No Rain, No Flowers February 3, 2021

Posted by nrhatch in Happiness, Life Balance, Mindfulness, Nature.

The way you speak to yourself matters.

Your body hears everything your mind says.

Accept setbacks as part of the process.

No rain, no flowers.

When you can’t find the sunshine, be the sun.

Aah . . . that’s better!

I talk to myself when I need intelligent conversation!

nrhatch - February 3, 2021

That’s the ticket! It’s also good to give yourself a “pep talk” from time to time:

“You got this!”
“You can do it.”

Kate Crimmins - February 3, 2021

I have been the last few months because I can’t see my friends to spur me on.

At least your Starbucks is open again. That helps. πŸ˜€

Love that! πŸ˜„

What’s the old saying? Something like: I talk to myself because I’m the only one who can carry on a decent conversation!

nrhatch - February 3, 2021

Ha! Plus I never interrupt myself . . . unless I’ve got something better to say. πŸ˜†

I get such sensible answers from myself….well mostly. πŸ˜…

nrhatch - February 3, 2021

Yes. I bet you do! You know who doesn’t get sensible answers from himself? I’ll give you a hint, his initials are DJT. And he is no longer POTUS! Hooray!

Yay and Hallelujah for that! πŸ‘πŸ»

Woo Hoo!

It will be a while before we see flowers again…. but okay!

nrhatch - February 3, 2021

In the meantime ~> No rain, no leaky roof!

Rivergirl - February 3, 2021

So far, so good.

5. Debra - February 3, 2021

I like the reminder No Rain, No Flowers! That’s really quite a lovely way to think about setbacks or difficult times. Thank you!

nrhatch - February 3, 2021

My pleasure, Debra. When times are tough, it may help to ask “what good can come of this?” For example, this pandemic is teaching many of us PATIENCE.

Sometimes we need to speak kindly to ourselves.

nrhatch - February 4, 2021

Yes! Some of us can be too hard on ourselves. We need to give ourselves a break and stop nitpicking.

“When you can’t find the sunshine be the Sun!” 😊 ❀
And yes, it is sooo important how we talk to ourselves!

nrhatch - February 4, 2021

If we are kind to others, we should be just as kind to ourselves! And be our own ray of sunshine on cloudy days.

Haha. Except in NE, no SNOW no flowers. πŸ™‚ I love your sayings here. In February, I need to use them as a mantra/ xo

nrhatch - February 4, 2021

Hope the snow doesn’t linger too long, Pam. Just long enough for a couple of snow angels!

9. L. Marie - February 4, 2021

Great advice again! Looking forward to flowers too. And we also have a ton of snow here.

nrhatch - February 4, 2021

Snow is fun for kids . . .
Hope spring brings a profusion of blooms to you, LM.

We all need pep talks now and then and need to learn to give ourselves encouragement in the way we do for others. I like this post! Thanks for the encouragement. πŸ™‚

nrhatch - February 6, 2021

So glad you enjoyed it, Sally. Your posts are often a ray of sunshine on cloudy days!

mybeautfulthings - February 8, 2021

What a lovely thing to say! Thank you. πŸ™‚

nrhatch - February 8, 2021

You’re welcome!
