Good Morning Most Awesome Educators and Friends! It’s kind of tough to stay upbeat when you are surrounded by such negativity. That’s why it’s very important to continue to visit the classroom of your mind. When I’m sitting in a negative conversation or just listening to something negative, I go within and say, “That may be true for you but not for me!” Life already has ups and downs so it’s best to just focus on the ups of life!
Laura Sandage wrote in her song “When I started down the street last Sunday feeling mighty low and kind of mean Suddenly a voice said go forth neighbor spread the picture on a wider screen And the voice said neighbor there’s a million reasons why you should be glad in all four seasons Hit the road neighbor leave your worries and strife Spread the religion of the rhythm of life.”
That’s how I feel this morning! I want to spread the Rhythm of Life! Rhythm has long and short notes. It also has silences. I used to have long period of sadness and anger with short burst of happiness. But once I learned to take advantage of the silences, I was able to flip it around! The ups and downs are choices like writing music on a page! So I now take a silent time of meditation and go within to choose happiness! “For the rhythm of life is a powerful beat Puts a tingle in your fingers and a tingle in your feet rhythm on the inside rhythm on the street and the rhythm of life is a powerful beat!”
Daily Affirmations: Today is an amazing day! Great things are happening all around me everyday! I chose happiness! I Love my life! I release the need to try and control everything and everybody and I trust the process of life! I love myself! I approve of myself! ALL IS WELL AND I AM SAFE! ALL IS WELL IN MY CLASSROOM! ALL IS WELL IN MY SCHOOL! ALL IS WELL IN MY WORLD! #IBlessMySchoolWithLove
