Child! Just Stop 🛑

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! Today I was thinking about the many hours, days, months, and years that I’ve wasted begging my family, friends, and co-workers to buy my books, review my books, or subscribe to my YouTube channel. Then they don’t do it, and I end up being hurt and angry. Even though as soon as I hear one of my family members or friends starting a business, even if I don’t need it, I go out a purchase or subscribe. So I felt like everybody else should do the same. A voice came to me and said, “ Kyri just stop!” Stop calling on your friends and family to be your customers. Try developing a relationship with your customers which is separate from the relationship with your friends, family, and co-workers.

All I do now, is just pray that my books, music, and YouTube channel make it into the hands of people the need them and can use them. Doing this released a lot of pressure from me and my close relationships. Hopefully this helps somebody else. Just do what you do and it will make it’s way to the right people!

Daily Affirmations: Today is a magnificent day. I choose to feel good about myself. I rest in the joy of knowing things will work out just as the should. My creations will find their way into the hands of those who need them. I am healthy, wealthy, whole, and complete. 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. #IBlessMyWorldWithLove

Every Little Step I Take. . .

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! I remember a song we used to sing at church when I was little. It said, “ If I take just one step, then God will do the rest.” As a child, I truly believed that God actually comes to get involved in our daily lives. As I grew up and had many prayers unanswered, I started learning the laws of God and the universe. So it is a little true that God will do the rest. It’s the laws that God set in place in the universe that does the rest. The law of attraction says if you take a step there mentally, it will come to you. Take step toward joy and believe that you have joy; and it comes to you. If you’ve been there in your mind, you’re a step closer. Although it seems easy, it is not. Sometimes you go 2 steps forward and 3 steps back. It’s easy to settle into the fantasy of God that we learned when we were children; thinking that we can sit back and watch God do everything. It’s so freeing to realize that we can take action mentally, which will bring us steps closer. Every little step we take, gets us closer to our dreams!

Daily Affirmations: today is a magnificent day. I am taking steps closer to my dreams. I am growing and learning every day. I love myself. I love my life. Great things are flowing my way. I am one with God and God is everything. I am healthy, wealthy, whole, and complete. 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. #IBlessMyWorldWithLove

Child! It’s Just A Test! Go on and Pass It!

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! I was sitting here thinking about all the things we go through in life. And the voice in my head said, “ Child! It’s just a test. Go on and pass it.” We learn from the process of taking the test, and when we face the next test; we can use the same process. The problem comes ( well at least for me) when we pass one test and say “whew! I won’t have to worry about that anymore!” Then another test like that test comes and we freak out and for the process we used to pass the first test. So starting today, I will be grateful for my test. Every test helps me sharpen the process of test taking so the next time something doesn’t go right in my life I can say…. Child! It’s just a test. Go on and pass it!

Daily Affirmations: today is a magnificent day. I choose to move forward in joy! I love my life. My life is fabulous. I love and approve of myself. Every experience in life is an opportunity to learn and grow. I am healthy, wealthy, whole , and complete. 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. #IBlessMyWorldWithLove

Stop Dreaming – Wake Up and Live!

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! I was sitting here thinking of the time and money I have spent on making my dreams come true. Publishing, Marketing, Social Media Post, and other connections. I have spent years paying for my dreams. Sacrificing vacations, friendships, relationships, and other social interaction for the purposes of one day reaching my goals. I woke up this morning feeling like I have been so focused on dreams that I have not lived. I have not experienced the heart breaking of a relationship falling apart because I always distance myself. I have not experienced the joys of being excited because I accomplished something because I keep moving to the next thing. I don’t know the joys of sharing my life with another person because every connection is a stepping stone towards my dreams. My dreams have made me tired 😴….. it’s time to live. What if I am just meant to be a teacher and nothing more? What if I’m not the next Mr Rogers or Bill Cosby? What if I don’t reach any other goals than the ones I already reached? What if only the people I’m connected with are the only people I’m meant to connect with? I say…. Live anyway! Stop worrying about what might be or could be or could’ve been and just LIVE!

LOVE YOURSELF AND LIVE!

Child! It is What It Is!

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! I am learning to be content with whatever is going on in my life. There is no need of asking why things are happening I just kind of accept them and move on. I don’t know for sure that everything happens for a reason, that’s what people say all the time. However, I will say that there is a lesson in everything that happens. So the best thing we can do is just try to learn the lesson. So I ask what is the experience is you were going through today trying to teach you? That’s what I ask myself all the time, Kyri what is this trying to teach you?

Daily Affirmations: today is a great day. I love myself. Every experience is an opportunity to learn and grow. I am glad to be alive. I am healthy, wealthy, whole, and complete. 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. #IBlessMyWorldWithLove

Mr Demby’s Teaching Philosophy

Many people feel like it’s bad to be firm with students. Other teachers tell me, “You can’t yell at kids, it might make them feel bad.” But I yell at them, then talk to them. Sometimes I feel like as adults we have to force kids to do something’s until they are responsible enough to choose for themselves. Just like with brushing you teeth and taking a bath. Our parents have to force us to do it because it’s just the right to do. Then as we get older, they don’t have to tell us because it has become apart of us. Case in point. The first time I made my kids sit quiet and close their eyes and have a meditation moment, they weren’t taking it seriously. So I had to force them to do it and do it right. Now they request the meditation time. So it’s okay to have a “ don’t try me” as you teach. Kids know when you’re trying to help them versus trying to hurt them.

Daily Affirmations: Today is a Marvelous day. I choose to move with joy and ease. Every experience is an opportunity to learn and grow. I love myself. I am healthy, wealthy, whole, and complete.

U. G. L. Y.

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! With everything going on in our country, it shows that a lot of people don’t love themselves. By hating someone else, it’s shows the parts of you that you hate the most. So today let’s be UGLY and learn to love ourselves. There was this comedian who started saying that years ago. I’m not sure who, but the joke was instead of people calling you ugly to your face, they would simply say, “ You got to love yourself!” As I get older, I realize that in this life, that’s where we all need to get to; Loving ourselves. If more people loved themselves, there would be more people spreading love to others.

Daily Affirmations: Today is a Magnificent Day. I choose to feel good about myself. I love who I see in the mirror. I truly love who I am. I am grateful to be alive. Living in my present moments makes me feel good. I am loving and lovable. I’m easy to love. I am healthy, wealthy, whole, and complete. 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. #IBlessMyWorldWithLove

Grateful, Thankful, Blessed!

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! A lot of times when things start happening for us that we had hoped would happen, it scares us. Wait! Stop! I should speak for me.

However this time, I’m going just stop and say Thank You! I’m going to stop questioning God and trying to figure out what will be required of me. I’m going to just be totally grateful and open to every new opportunity that comes my way! I’m grateful, thankful, and blessed!

Celebrating the Stranger Things

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers. Today we live in a totally different world than we did just 2 months ago. Some would call it a strange new world. A world of wearing face mask and having to try and stay 6 feet apart. It kind of make our already impersonal society seem more separated than ever. However, there is a reason to rejoice. By being forced to be apart, we have some what banded together now more than ever. We calling each other more. The other day, I had a cup of coffee on Zoom with aunt who I hadn’t seen in a while because we’ve both been too busy.

In some strange way, social distancing is bringing us together. I’m loving the drive by birthday parades and graduations. People are finding creative ways to celebrate and come together. That makes me feel happy 😃 These things would’ve been considered strange just 2 months ago. Although it seems like we have entered another dimension like in Stranger Things, we still have a reasoned celebrate because we’re forming closer bonds and growing through adversity.

Daily Affirmations: Today is a Great day. I have so many reasons to rejoice. I celebrate my life as it is right here and now. I love myself. I approve of myself. I live in the present. I am healthy, wealthy, whole and complete. 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. #IBlessMyWorldWithLove

The Good F Word!

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! Faith cancels out fear. Faith is the ability to wish without worry! Faith comes when you face fear head on.

But it seems like faith has to be developed. As children, fear is instilled in us. Don’t do this. Don’t do that. This will hurt you. This is dangerous. There were sometimes I felt as though the adults in my life wanted back things to happen to me. Just so they could say. I was right. I took on that trait from them. When I was younger, I always had old man wisdom. I would tell my friends something bad would happen and sit and wait for it to happen, just so I could say, “ I told you so”. As I got older and once I started on this journey of self discovery and joyful living, I wanted to have faith in good things rather than bad. Now I want to be the one saying “sure, that can happen. You can do it”. And then sit back and watch them do it.

Daily Affirmations: Today is an Amazing day. I wish without worry. I am excited about life. I love and approve of myself. It is safe to be me. My future is brighter because I believe. I am healthy, wealthy, whole, and complete. 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. #IBlessMyWorldWithLove
