Positive Affirmations To Appreciate Men – Powerful Words

Today it’s the celebration called “Dragobete” in my country. To celebrate this day I decided to write an article with positive affirmations to appreciate men.

Dragobete is a traditional Romanian holiday celebrated on February 24. Dragobete was the son of Baba Dochia, which stands for the main character in the pagan myth related to spring arrival and the end of the harsh winter. Due to his endless kindness, he was chosen – according to some sources, by Virgin Mary – to be the Guardian of Love. The day is particularly known as “the day when the birds are betrothed”. It is around this time that the birds begin to build their nests and mate. On this day, considered locally the first day of spring, boys and girls gather vernal flowers and sing together. Those who take part in Dragobete customs are supposed to be protected from illness, especially fevers, for the rest of the year. If the weather allows, girls and boys pick snowdrops or other early spring plants for the person they are courting. In the countryside, there is an old tradition with girls and boys going into the woods to pick flowers. When they return home, the traditions says that boys were running after girls to kiss them. If the girl liked the boy she lets him kiss her. There is a saying in Romania that makes a lot of sense regarding this: “Dragobete kisses the girls”.

Opportunity for joy and well-being, Dragobetele is one of the most beautiful ancient customs of the Romanian people. It is also mandatory that Dragobete men be in cordial relations with females. Men are not allowed to annoy women nor to engage in a quarrel, otherwise, they will have an unlucky spring and a year not favorable. In general, both boys and girls have a duty to rejoice in this day so that they can enjoy the love with your man the entire year. I write this article with positive affirmations to appreciate men with the intention to enjoy Love, men in my case, the entire year. Therefore here are the positive affirmations to appreciate men that I thought and that I share with you.

Positive Affirmations To Appreciate Men

I appreciate my father from all my heart. I appreciate my father for conceiving me and providing for me in so many ways, so many years. Thank you, father.

I appreciate my brother with all the Love I am capable of. I appreciate my brother for the joy he brought into my life, so many years, in so many moments. Brother thank you for being the person that makes me laugh the most in this life. You made me laugh so many times, healing my soul and therefore also healing my body.

I appreciate all men that live today on the Planet Earth. I appreciate all men that have ever lived from the beginning of time and until now. Thank you for your presence, work, efforts, and energy. You are Loved. You are all Loved.

As Rori Raye says and I agree with her statement:

“The truth is  – men are loyal, brave and strong. Men have a tremendous capacity to love, commit, nurture, cherish, understand, support and be there for us.”

I thank you for your thinking. I thank you for your strength. I respect you for your thinking. I respect you for your strength.

I appreciate all men that ever lived and the ones that are alive now, for the time and efforts they put in handling things and cherishing the feelings of the people around them.

I respect the masculine energy of a man for the amazing ability to organize, figure things out, achieving things, winning victories.

I appreciate and respect all the actions of men that they did, do and will do.

I send gratitude into the Universe for all the battles that every man fought in. I respect men for all the battles that they took, take or will take in the future.

It is said that as a woman you should welcome a man as if he was in a war the entire day. It is said that a man feels every day like he is in a war, he feels like he is in a constant battle. From this point of view, the woman should welcome the man like the Sunshine and show him that there is Light, Ease and Joy, besides war, battles, and struggle.

Therefore I send from my heart appreciation and gratitude for all the wars that men fought in. I send from my heart Light and Ease for all the battles and struggle that all men have gone, are going and will go through.

I forgive masculine energy for everything. I forgive masculine energy for every situation where it was considered or believed that it was hurting the feminine energy. There is much Love between the two. We love each other dearly.

Dear man, I really appreciate you. Thank you for listening so many times to me. Thank you for making me feel loved in so many moments. Thank you for being my protector. Thank you for being my provider. Thank you for taking good care of me. Thank you for making me happy. Thank you for making me laugh so many times.

Dear man, you are full of energy. You are overflowing with joy. You can achieve greatness. You can win your victory. Your body is healthy. Your mind is brilliant. Your soul is tranquil. I believe you can do anything. Everything that is happening now is happening for your ultimate goal. You love and accept yourself for who you are. You forgive those who have harmed you in the past and detach peacefully from them. Your ability to conquer your challenges is limitless. Your potential to succeed is infinite.

I am proud of you. I respect, trust, support and appreciate you. You are blessed.

It is my strong belief that men make our life more beautiful, more alive, more full. Men bring more fullness into our lives.

How I Joined Toastmasters IDEST ~ Public Speaking Club

It is said that fear of public speaking is one of the biggest human fears all around the world. In my case, it was on top 3.

At the workplace, I was able to frequently avoid the times when I had to speak in front of an audience. That’s an art! But, of course, there were situations when I couldn’t do this and I was forced to present a speech.

These situations pushed me to face my fear of public speaking and to join the program TOASTMASTERS, one year ago.

For those of you who don’t know, Toastmasters International is a top global organization which has the purpose to develop the ability of public speaking and leadership all around the world.

Through its clubs, Toastmasters International helps people to learn the art of public speaking, active listening, and critical thinking, in order to increase the personal development and leadership potential.

I have chosen the club Toastmasters IDEST  https://m.facebook.com/toastmastersidest/  due to its members who create a friendly and supportive environment at every meeting. Firstly I have visited the club, just as a guest, observing the roles and the speakers, but I wanted so much to find out of what I am capable in this domain, that I became a member. I have scheduled my first speech and when that day came, the panic didn’t let me think of something else. Surprisingly, with all my emotions, the speech was appreciated by the audience. I know that because every speaker received from the public a ticket with their feedback. So the appreciative, but also constructive feedback I have received, made me continue with speech after speech. After only one year I have presented 10 speeches, in which I have practiced organizing a speech, gestures, vocal variety, research or persuading the audience. At the end of these 10 speeches, I have reached the level of „Competent Communicator” and I have received a certificate from Toastmasters International. I was so proud when I had it in my hands!

Meanwhile, at some meetings when I didn’t deliver any speech I assumed the leadership roles, like Toastmaster of the meeting, Grammarian, Timer, Evaluator. This leadership part is the other branch offered by the Toastmasters program, near the public speaking.

From the beginning, I liked these leadership roles and my favorite is Toastmaster of the meeting, the person who presents and leads a meeting. I like this role because I can choose the meeting theme and I can bring something new from one meeting to another.

So, very soon, my effort of assuming leadership roles will be rewarded with another certificate from Toastmasters International: „Competent Leader” and I can’t wait!

Although I feel the improvement on my public speaking, and also on my leadership skills, my journey doesn’t stop here. I have a long road until I became „Advanced Communicator” and „Advanced Leader”.

If you are also interested in personal development, public speaking or leadership you can visit the club Toastmasters IDEST, every Monday from 19.30 at the address Lt. Ionescu Balcan Street, no. 24, 2nd district, Bucharest, Romania.

Toastmasters IDEST Members

Participation at meetings, as a guest, is free.

This program helped me a lot and even if I still have emotions, now, I don’t run from presentations at my job anymore. I know I will always have emotions, but I don’t have to hide them, just to control them, because this is what defines me!
