I don’t know about you but sometimes I find it difficult to stay positive. I find the jobs of wife, mother, teacher, etc to be overwhelming at times and I wonder what I can do to help myself stay positive and happy. Going through the St. Mary’s program has not only helped increase my knowledge and teaching ability but it has also urged me to look closer at my inner self and how I relate to others and the world around me. I’ve been reading about gratitude, openness, and intention and all three keep telling me to think of the positive and to seek out opportunities to help show and model the important things I want to have in life. Well, I can’t say I’m doing superb in this area. I still am critical of myself, quick to judge and eager to see and have things done my way. I’m learning to be grateful for the things I have (family, health, friends, a job, home, etc) and to keep calm amongst the storm. I’m learning to seek out others opinions and to try new things. It’s scary at first but I’d never know the rewards and benefits if I didn’t give it a try. I’m learning to lean on others just a bit more than I have in the past and not only is it benefiting my sanity but it’s building stronger relationships with those around me. It may take a village to raise a child, but I believe it takes a community to support and sustain ALL. I’m thankful to those around me who show kindness, caring and love. I couldn’t do it without you!
Time To Celebrate!
