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

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

Singing In The Rain! Fun Friday Edition!

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! It is a rainy Friday here in Kentucky! Most people hate the rain, but I love it! The rain is used to till to soil and make it ready to grow things. That’s how I see the “rain” in my life. Most people envision rain as bad things that happen in life. That may be the case but if you see every experience as an opportunity to learn and grow, you can take joy in the rain! Sing in the rain! Dance in the rain! Grow from the rain!

Singing in The Rain by Kyri Demby

The rain in my life is falling hard, yet I still have a song.
The winds are blowing while lightening flashes, my voice is even more strong.
I’m singing in the rain
Through al the hurt and pain
There’s so much to gain
The knowledge from lessons remain
I’m singing in the rain
Dancing in the rain
Twirling in the rain
Jumping in the rain
The rain falls harder and yet in sing on
The thunder claps loud, my voice is even more strong
I find joy in the rain
Peace in the rain
Happiness in the rain
The rain comes down
To til the soil
Break up fallow ground
Water the seeds
And saves us from toil
Toil is hard hard work
The work digging in the ground
Searching our hearts to
Turn our lives around
Searching our minds to
Fine our strength
Fixing our eyes to
See things that were so evident
I can see clearly even in the rain
I see all the growing that will come from my pain
So I can take joy and keep on singing in the rain.

Daily Affirmations: Today is a Happy Day! I am loving myself . I’m glad to be alive. I sing and rejoice in the rain. My life is amazing. Everyone I come in contact with is for me. 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

All the parts that make up you; the good, the bad, the ugly, and everything between. Love yourself for who you are. The best time we could spend during our COVID-19 staying at home, is the time we spend getting to know ourselves. Take a few minutes a day and just sit and think about what you think about!

Feeling Good About Self Control!

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! Teaching our students self control is one of the most important lessons you could ever teaching. This involves teaching our children to think about what they think about!

Many articles compare the benefits of self control versus self esteem. However, I see it as being directly correlated. Students who know how to control themselves almost always have a high self esteem. Children who lack self control normally are the ones who are being constantly redirected, which doesn’t always make us feel good. While those who control themselves get complimented constantly, which feels good.

Let’s think intrinsically. How many times have you gone on a diet or said you were going to stop smoking? Then 3 or 4 days in you have let your self down due to lack of self control. You normally feel horrible. Now how many time have you set your mind to accomplish a goal and actually accomplished it? After which you feel excited and confident. The same is with self control. Every time student get the victory over themselves, they become stronger.

Help our students feel good about themselves by instilling the habit of self control.

Daily Affirmations: Today is a Fabulous day. I sprinkle love, joy, and peace into every corner of my classroom. I am controlling myself more and more. I teach self control to my children and it boost their self esteem. I am an Awesome educator! I am healthy, wealthy, whole, and complete. ALL IS WELL IN MY CLASSROOM. ALL IS WELL IN MY SCHOOL.
