YES! That’s what I’m talking about! We had 13 blogs submitted for week 7. Thank you very much. You’re all fabulous. It’s been a pleasure to read them all. There are blogs (and a vlog!) about art, carbon footprint, libraries, tourism, rugby league and a magic weekend. Something for everyone.
There were a couple of blogs which had a similar theme. A theme of positivity. A togetherness feel about them. After reading them I was left thinking that we all have a role to play in making a difference or being the change we want. It’s down to us all.
I’m a fan of the message on the Participation Cymru blog – Think globally, act locally – encouraging us all to not only think about the state of the world but to take actions in our own communities and neighbourhoods. This theory will help us to create a sustainable future for all our environments. It shows that by acting together, good things can happen.
A bit like the social Men Sheds movement which started in Australia and which features in Chris Bolton’s blog. Chris highlights to positive impact Men Sheds had on men’s health and happiness, and hopes that the slime of bureaucracy and health and safety legislation doesn’t squash the movement.
The message in Heather Currie’s blog, The Power of a Fly, is also clear, that something very small can make a huge difference. We also get Part 2 of Feeling Fabulous by Dr Deborah Gray, who offers some tips on improving our well being.
Of course Phil Jewitt will tell you that you good things happen all the time and that we don’t need a national Random Act of Kindness day to be remind us all to be kind to each other, or our environments, but that there is a place for kindness and being truly sociable each and every day.
Thank you to all the bloggers this week, and to everyone who has read and shared the blogs. It’s back to Janet E Davis to be your host for week 8, and if anyone fancies hosting in the future just say, it’s dead easy 🙂
Until next time…
