for our Costa Blanca Edition
MABS is looking for a winner. Thanks to Chris, who runs the line dancing social evenings in Calasparra, 500€ was raised for MABS Murcia through the sale of raffle tickets for a gorgeous patchwork quilt, which was hand-crafted by Joan Greener. The winning number was drawn at a social held at the Don Gomez Restaurant in Calasparra but, on trying to contact the person named on the ticket, MABS has drawn a blank and they believe that the number may have been written down wrongly. The ticket number is 303 and the name on the ticket is ‘Tony’. If you know who this person is, would you please contact MABS on 693 824 511 and they will arrange for Tony to collect his
prize. “Joan has been supporting MABS for some time by raffling her beautiful, hand-made quilts. They are very well made and take many hours of work” said MABS Murcia Director, Lyn Baines. “I do hope that we can track down the winner soon.” MABS Murcia/Mar Menor helps all people in the Murcia/Mar Menor area who are affected by cancer, providing drivers, translators, information leaflets, equipment, a listening ear, or a shoulder to lean on. If you want to volunteer, donate or you need help, you can contact MABS on 693 275 779 or visit their website: www.mabsmurcia. com
Life with Linda
“most important relationship” The relationships we have with family and friends are generally the ones we value the most. They are an important part of the life of each of us. However, there is one relationship that I feel is even more important, that governs all the others – and that is the relationship you have with yourself. Now, I say this because every day of your life you send yourself thousands of mental messages that determine how you evaluate your own worth. The evaluation you make of your worth is what determines your level of self-esteem. Of course, the messages we receive from our family, friends, co-workers and others affect our self-esteem, too. But they send only a tiny fraction of the number of messages you do, so they don’t have the same opportunity to affect you. Besides, if you are continually sending yourself negative, devaluing appraisals, you will drown out the other messages, no matter how positive they might be. It is very important that you, yourself, become the source of these positive messages, or affirmations as they are sometimes called. When you take control of this process, the leverage you will gain from your “inside” position will make tremendous personal growth possible. Unfortunately, many people spend much more time focusing on their faults and mistakes than they do on their strengths and successes. However, a positive focus can be learned. I’ve been teaching people to do this for nearly 30 years, so if you choose to learn it, I know that you can do it too. Nobody is too old,or too young to change the way we treat ourselves, a lot of people spend their lives, wishing things were different, dreaming of a better life, but they do not
do anything about it because they don´t feel that they are worth it, or convince themselves they will fail anyway, so why try! We have hundreds of thousands of thoughts a day, this is the way we talk to ourselves, we control these (though often we feel they control us), taking that control back is vitally important, listen how you talk to yourself, if somebody else spoke to you like that, or you spoke to others like that; there probably would not be a friendly relationship for long!! Nobody is born to fail, or born to succeed, the outcomes are all up to us, and if we don not like our self very much, then why should anyone else? If we do not see ourselves as worthy of happiness and achievement then the world and opportunities will pass us by. Looking in the mirror and liking who you see, is a great place to start, but. one, many people feel scared or threatened to do. Most people value themselves on their actions, but this is not the person you are, that is just your behaviour and behaviour is learnt, just as the way you think about yourself is learnt, so that means it can be changed and moulded into something new. At the end of it all, it really is all down to you, and your choice, it really is as easy to have a cup half full as to have one half empty, but the have full one has all the potential to be fully enjoyed and savored, where as the half empty you are looking back at what has already gone, no matter how good or bad it was, it is just that gone and none of us has the power to change the past. So 24hrs of no put downs, be nice to yourself, enjoy being you as there is nobody in the whole wide world just like you.
