The Madness of Monday!

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers!!! As we open this new week, let’s spread hope instead of getting caught in the madness of Monday! Most people dread Monday. They hate their jobs. They hate getting up early! They hate the hustle and bustle. They get anxious about the things they have to do and finish. This why the heart attack rate goes up on Monday. However, just a simple five to ten minute meditation can shift your anxiety to hope and joy! Even if you close yourself off in the bathroom and set the timer on your phone. Stop, Think, and Breathe for as long as you can! Spend time thinking about what brings you joy, love, and peace. I don’t watch the news because that causes a great deal of anxiety too. I’m going to suggest not watching it on Monday morning until you have found your personal peaceful haven. Do whatever you need to do in order to not get caught in the Madness of Monday!

Daily Affirmations: Today is an Amazing Day! I am happy and Grateful to be alive! I love my Job! I love the people I work for and with and they love me. My job is a peaceful haven. I send love to anyone who might annoy me today. Today I work with joy and ease. ALL IS WELL IN MY CLASSROOM! ALL IS WELL IN MY SCHOOL! ALL IS WELL IN MY WORLD! ALL IS WELL AND I AM SAFE! #IBlessMySchoolWithLove

Test Defy Thursday

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! You defied all the odds and passed the test! And I wanna know all about it! Dare to step outside of the box! Dare to be great! I had a goal not to yell at my students. Yesterday as I was teaching, one of my students kept jumping up and down and rolling on the floor while we were reading. That is a pet peeve. Reading is one of the most important things to me. So I started in on him. I see in the corner of my eye one of my students raising his hand as if there was an emergency. “What” I yell. He didn’t say anything he just put his hand over his chest and stomach. That’s our sign for taking a deep breath and repeating our affirmation (ALL IS WELL IN MY CLASSROOM. ALL IS WELL IN MY SCHOOL. ALL IS WELL IN MY WORLD. ALL IS WELL AND I AM SAFE) This gave me joy for the rest of the day!

Daily Affirmations: Today is an Amazing Day! Every experience is an opportunity to learn and grow. I trust the process of life! I love and approve of myself. I am vibrant and alive! I choose joy, love, and peace! ALL IS WELL IN MY CLASSROOM! ALL IS WELL IN MY SCHOOL! ALL IS WELL IN MY WORLD! ALL IS WELL AND I AM SAFE! #IBlessMySchoolWithLove

Not Exciting. . . What?

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! One the things that burns me up inside is a student yelling out in the middle of a lesson, “This is Boring!” I get so angry. I pride myself on keeping an active classroom, but there are sometime when you just have to sit, listen, and learn. So in these times when a student yells out, “I’m bored” I feel I have to make sure they are “not bored anymore”. So I make them copy the dictionary for the rest of class. Now in my whole career of over 15 years this has happened maybe 5 times. However just this year, it has happened every week. I figure this must be my time to face my issues with this. I just really don’t how anyone can be bored? I could live at home for the rest of my life and still find so many things to do that I would be busy from sun up to sun down. Watching TV would not be one of them. Anyway if every experience is an opportunity to learn and grow. This is what I’m gathering from my experiences of the past few weeks. Sometimes when children don’t understand how to do what you’re asking, they say the hated B word. Sometimes when children were expecting you to behave a certain way and you behave different they say the hated B word. There are various reasons but you will never know until you ask. The point is to release the need to try to control everybody and everything; and ask for clarification. By asking questions, it stops me from going into “pet peeve” mode and it becomes a learning experience for both me and the student. Lesson: When people do things to annoy you, Stop, Think and Breathe and Ask questions or Walk away!

Daily Affirmations: Today is an Amazing Day! I love myself! I love others! I release the need to try to control everything and everyone. I trust the process of life. I flow easily with life. Only good comes from each experience. It is an opportunity to learn and grow! ALL IS WELL IN MY CLASSROOM! ALL IS WELL IN MY SCHOOL! ALL IS WELL IN MY WORLD! ALL IS WELL AND I AM SAFE! #IBlessMySchoolWithLove

Changing The World One Child at A Time!

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! Many of the affirmations and advice I give can be used by parents or teachers. Really anybody who deals with children. My books are the same way. For instance Simon the Self Control Seal teaches the reader to Stop, Think and Breathe and Make the Right Choice. This lesson can be used  anywhere! The point is let love guide us when we are working our children! This generation has been told that the world is coming to an end. They have seen more acts of hatred in their few years of life than many of us have ever even thought about. Let’s keep this in mind as we work with our children. If our thoughts are creating our reality, it is our thoughts that have created what our world is now. However through a slight shift in love, joy, and peace, our combined thoughts can create a better world for the future! There is always hope for the power is always in the present moment! As World Changers we are here to bring hope, joy, love, and peace back to the lives and mind of our children thusly to our world!

Daily Affirmations: Today is an Amazing Day! Only good comes from each experience! I know that my joyful thoughts are changing the world! I choose joy! My classroom is a peaceful haven! I teach with joy and ease! ALL IS WELL IN MY CLASSROOM! ALL IS WELL IN MY SCHOOL! ALL IS WELL IN MY WORLD! ALL IS WELL AND I AM SAFE! #IBlessMySchoolWithLove

Shake and Stretch

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! I had a wonderful weekend It was awfully busy! The lesson gathered from this weekend was to shake off your old ways of thinking. Those ways that don’t make your life work better – Shake it off! Those ways that close off your way of thinking – Shake it off! Those ways that keep you joyfully jailed in your job and not ever living your dream – Shake it off! Then after you shake off all those thoughts that don’t serve you anymore, you have to stretch yourself! This means expanding your circle. Getting to know new people. Talking to people who you would have never talked to before. Stretch yourself means to expand your mind. Take a class. Find someone who is doing what you want to do and learn from them. Get a coach if you have to. Make sure to be coachable! Read new books! Stretch Yourself!

Daily Affirmation: Today is an Amazing Day! I am stretching myself and expanding my mind! My mind and body are flexible and flowing. I easily flow with life and change. My life is divinely guided and I am always headed in the best direction! I love myself! I am vibrant and alive! ALL IS WELL IN MY CLASSROOM! ALL IS WELL IN MY SCHOOL! ALL IS WELL IN MY WORLD! ALL IS WELL AND I AM SAFE! #IBlessMySchoolWithLove

Love Lenses !

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! Joyful moments continue to come my way all the time! I choose not to life a life of blame and guilt but of love. When my students behave in a way  that is foreign to me, I try to view it through the eyes of love. I just smile and say, “What are you doing?” Most of the time they say, “I don’t know.” My response is, “Well would you try doing what I asked until you can figure out what you’re doing?” LOL! One thing I will say is working with children will make you tired mentally and physically. Sometimes I think it would probably be easier for me if I got mad and yelled a lot like I used to. But then I remember that’s what made me leave the classroom the first time. When I see my students through the eyes of love instead of guilt and blame, we both have a wonderful learning experience! Teaching is much more fun when I look through my love lenses!

Daily Affirmations: Today is an Amazing Day!!!! I have amazing potential! I love my life. I see through the eyes of love. I love and approve of myself just as I am right here and now. Anyone that might irritate me today, I bless with a double portion of love, right now! ALL IS WELL IN MY CLASSROOM! ALL IS WELL IN MY SCHOOL! ALL IS WELL IN MY WORLD! ALL IS WELL AND I AM SAFE! #IBlessMySchoolWithLove

Testify Thursday!!!

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers!!!!! This was an Amazing Week! We were off Monday! So Tuesday when we got to school, I thought the children would be all wound up. But thankful in my morning meditation, I have been turning my focus to things that I do want and not the things I don’t. Just like when you buy and new car, it seems like you see that car everywhere and all the time. That’s how this week has been. I only saw the behaviors that I wanted to see. Our mind is a powerful tool!

Daily Affirmations: Today is an Amazing Day! I love and approve of myself just as I am. I teach with joy and ease! I am vibrant and alive! Joyful things always come my way. Only good comes from each experience. I live in a safe and secure world! ALL IS WELL IN MY CLASSROOM! ALL IS WELL IN MY SCHOOL! ALL IS WELL IN MY WORLD!

More Turning your Focus!

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers!!!!! What does your heart long to be? You can be it! What does your heart long to do? You can do it! Sometimes it’s hard to step outside of where we currently are, and see ourselves in another way. But if you can go in your mind and “change the channel” from your current circumstance to what you would like your life to be; you will start seeing evidence of it! Just learn to turn your focus! Our minds are more powerful than we think! I just believe that God will not jump into action and start moving and rearranging the universe until you can at least the possibilities for yourself. Then once you see it. Start giving your full attention to that vision and only that!

Daily Affirmations: Today is an amazing day! great things are flowing my way. Divine right action is guiding my life! I am living my dream! I love my life! I love myself! I am vibrant and alive! I flow easily with life! I am healthy and whole! 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
