Speaking of Encourage – How do you do it?


Welcome to the Blog Party! This week our topic is Encourage.

ENCOURAGE – give support, confidence, or hope to [someone].

This means we are looking for everything and anything on the topic! How to encourage others, how to be encouraged personally, tips for being encouraging, really ANYTHING and EVERYTHING on the subject.

I’m going to start things off by directing you to three posts I think speak beautifully on the topic:

Encouragement: What does it mean and how is it done? Excerpt for Positive Discipline blog original article by Po Bronson “Since encouragement is so essential, it would be good for parents to know exactly what encouragement means and how to do it.”

52 Practical and Thoughtful Ways to Encourage Others by Diane of An Extraordinary Day This post is part of a four part series on how to be encouraging. “Those who make a point to encourage others are influencers in their world. We might even call them world changers.”

10 Statements Everyone Needs to Hear by Dale Partridge of The Daily Positive. A great ten piece arsenal to make encouraging others easier. “Mark Twain famously said, “I can live for two months on a good compliment.” Great for you Mark Twain, but I don’t think many people can live off of 6 compliments per year!”

Here are the ground rules for this party:

  1. Share NEW and OLD posts on the topic. This is your chance to share your favorite posts. If they fit the topic and you think we could benefit it doesn’t matter when you wrote it. Wisdom is timeless!
  2. Share your’s and other’s posts! Ran across a timely tidbit? Let us hear about it too! When sharing someone else’s posts let us know that in a comment.
  3. Leave a comment after posting letting us know why you think the post is worth our time. We are building a knowledge library and your context makes it all the more valuable!
  4. Have Fun! I hope to make this party a fun and valuable addition to your weekend blog hopping.

Note: If you don’t have a blog to share, photos, ETSY collections and essays are most welcome. Let me know if you need help linking them up!

I look forward to visiting all the treasures YOU add to the collection!
Outrageous Joy,

P.S. Next week we will be “Speaking of Learn” and looking for posts and places that will foster this Bliss Habit!

LEARN – to acquire knowledge of or skill in by study, instruction, or experience.
