Positively Inspirational: Words keep us connected

Inspirational round-up

I’m so glad I write about this theme on BritMums.  Out of all of the Round-ups this is my fav (I’m not biased, honest).  You see,  a positively inspirational blog post can be about almost anything.  Triumph over adversity, beauty in death, sharing lives, sharing loves.  Sharing anything is vulnerable online.  And yet we write.  We write brave and courageous posts.  We write to inform, and we write about our sorrows, and about our celebrations. 

Gemma from Mummy’s Waisted wrote a letter to her children.

Sonia wrote about her son who has autism.  She writes to raise awareness and in this post Sonia tells their story about what led me to suspect my son has ASA, and why I’m relieved that he has been diagnosed.

Emma from Island Living 365 wrote about her experience of giving up booze for 40 days.

Annette from the blog 3 Little Buttons wrote about a parenting mistake she felt she’d made and what she did to rectify it (and teach us at the same time) in I told my 5 year old daughter she could push back – what was I thinking?

Kerry from Kerry Louise Norris blog wrote about the day she was mum shamed by a couple of new mums who thought they knew better in The day I was mum shamed.

Becky, who was sadly recently widowed and blogs at Diary of a Fat Bottomed Girl, wrote about grief and how it comes and goes in her incredibly brave post We Ride the Crest of Waves.

Captain Bobcat, a blog about parenting, eco-friendly and ethical lifestyle, travel, vegetarian recipes and family adventures.  Eva wrote a Supermama interview with Folakemi from Peacocks can fly.  Showcasing others is a beautiful thing.

The final spot has to go to Jessica.  On 14th April Louise wrote the post she never wanted to write Journey’s End.  I am moved to tears reading it again now. And yet I find the way Louise writes so inspirational, so positive even in the hardest of times, she still makes time to think of us.  The very next post Louise writes is a gratitude post, and never have I been so on my knees by that.  Thank you to Jessica for everything you taught us.

Next month its over to Mich again.

Keep on sharing, every word matters.  They keep us connected, keep us inspired and keep us grateful.  Keep writing those words.
