A big welcome to Shout Out Saturday
What’s it all about I hear you ask?
Shout Out Saturday is where I invite you to join in by leaving a link or a comment to something that has had an impact on you recently:
You can leave a link to your own blog, or maybe something you’ve read on someone else’s blog, or tell us about your favourite blogger, or simply share some good news, or even just drop in to say hello….
- no strings attached
- simply leave a comment below
- check out any other links if you want to
- use the hashtag #ShoutoutSaturday on social media
- no need to get caught up in too much compulsory sharing
- keep it family friendly
- Saturday can cover any day of the week
But first a quote ….
My Shout Out(s) this week go to….
1. Nostalgia and Memories
This animation and Maroon 5 song (Memories) is just gorgeous – try not to get emotional as you watch this!
There’s a time that I remember, when I did not know no pain
When I believed in forever, and everything would stay the same
Here’s to the ones that we got
Cheers to the wish you were here, but you’re not
2. Remembrance Day
Poppies for 11 am on 11/11 – a very different type of distanced memorial this year.
I wrote this post about 62000 poppies back in 2018 and it still rings true today.
3. Reflections on Riding the Waves of Life
I know I mentioned it in a post the other day, but just in case you missed it, I was a guest on Sue’s Women Living Well After 50 podcast series this week. I’m sharing the link in case you’d like to watch or listen to the interview. Shout out to Sue for all her passion and efforts in promoting and supporting midlife women in so many ways!
In the interview I talked about writing a timeline of what’s happened over the past decade or so and reflecting on life as I approach my 60th birthday next month. Lots of memories shared and how challenges and opportunities impact our lives in ways we don’t realise at the time.
It was a great (new) experience and I was honoured to be invited to share my story with Sue and her followers.
You can find the post here:
I’d love to know what you think!
Yesterday was World Kindness Day and I hope you were able to be extra kind to yourself and others! In a way it’s a shame we have to have a special day to remind ourselves to be kind – thankfully some people are naturally kind and don’t need reminding 🙂
Are you keen to share something or leave a shout out to someone? I hope so – all you have to do is leave a comment or a link!
Has someone done something nice for you, have you witnessed a random act of kindness, have you read something interesting or watched a good movie lately?
Anything really – it’s up to you!
As always, feel free to share and get the word out there #ShoutoutSaturday
Thanks again for all your support, it’s much appreciated.
