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

The Work Must Continue

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! I haven’t been inspired to write in a while. However this morning as I woke up before the opportunity clock went off, I realize that no matter what you’re going through the work must continue. Life must go on in some form or fashion. So I got up, washed my face, brushed my teeth, did some laundry, worked on a few chapters of a new book that I am doing, and then got ready for work. Life doesn’t stop, so I’m learning just live through it! Live Through It!

Dr. Andrea Dinardo you continue to inspire me! Thank you!

Daily Affirmations: today is a magnificent day. I love and approve of myself. I am glad to be alive. Great things are flowing my way. I am healthy, wealthy, hall, 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.

Mr. Demby’s Teacher Tip Rant

Children can tell! Children can tell if you, the teacher, don’t like them. They can tell what you think of them, the moment of your first interaction. Most times, their instincts are not wrong. People always look at me weird because I fuss at my children. Sometimes if you walk by my classroom, you may hear me yelling. However, the majority of my students knew, that I was pulling the best from them. Many of them have come back to me, thanking me because I was the reason they wanted to come to school. I’m one of those teacher that is going to keep it real. I even had a few students that I told. “Look I don’t like you, and you don’t like me but since we have to coexist, let’s make the best of it.” by the end of the year we were a lot closer! Be real with your students, they can tell!

Daily Affirmations: Today is an Amazing Day! I am my authentic self. What others do and feel have nothing to do with me. I am guided by infinite love and I am always headed in the best direction. 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

Lost in Translation

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! For reason I was way more inspired to write when I was on vacation. But when I came home, I had total writer’s block. Maybe at home I have so many worries that take control over my mind? I’m learning to clear my mind, in the midst of all the craziness.

Clearing my mind includes:

1. No Binge Watching Tru-Crime shows

2. Listen and read Louise Hay/ Abraham Hicks affirmations

3. Fill my mind positivity

4. Meditate

This helps me to come out of the weeds and no longer be lost in translation.

Daily Affirmations: Today is a Magnificent Monday! I choose to move and live with joy and ease. I am enough! I love myself. I am inspired to be creative. 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

Happy Juneteenth!

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! Juneteenth.com says Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free. Note that this was two and a half years after President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation – which had become official January 1, 1863. The Emancipation Proclamation had little impact on the Texans due to the minimal number of Union troops to enforce the new Executive Order. However, with the surrender of General Lee in April of 1865, and the arrival of General Granger’s regiment, the forces were finally strong enough to influence and overcome the resistance.

Today Juneteenth commemorates African American freedom and emphasizes education and achievement. It is a day, a week, and in some areas a month marked with celebrations, guest speakers, picnics and family gatherings. It is a time for reflection and rejoicing. It is a time for assessment, self-improvement and for planning the future. Its growing popularity signifies a level of maturity and dignity in America long over due. In cities across the country, people of all races, nationalities and religions are joining hands to truthfully acknowledge a period in our history that shaped and continues to influence our society today. Sensitized to the conditions and experiences of others, only then can we make significant and lasting improvements in our society.

Daily Affirmations: Today is a Wonderful Day! I am free to be me. I am proud of my history and culture. I am strong because of my ancestors. I am great and there is greatness in me! I love myself.

And Let It Begin With Me

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! I have often heard the song “Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me”. Well I soon realized that there’s no one else it can begin with because we only can control ourselves. We can influence others but ultimately the only person we can control is us.

Peace
What is Peace?
Is it the quiet of your mind?
Is it having things the way you want them?
Is it a feeling when things are calm as the sea?
What is Peace?
And if it must begin with me
I must be at peace with myself
Peace within gives peace without
Peace
Peace
Peace to heart that has grown cold
Is not the peace we wish for our soul
Peace to a heart filled with sadness
May be the longing for a little gladness
Peace
Peace
Peace to a heart filled with pain
May be just to feel the sunshine or rain
To feel peace
Peace
To feel harmony
To feel joy
To feel love
Love
What is Love?
Is it the two hearts joined together?
Is it knowing you’re accepted for who you are?
Is it the feeling when things are flowing like art?
What is Love?
And if it must begin with me
I must be in love with myself
Love within shows Love without
Love
Love
Love
If we are to Love
Let Love begin with me
If we are to Trust
Let Trust begin with me
If we are to Dream
Let the Dreams begin in me
And if we are to be at peace
Let peace begin with me

Daily Affirmations: Today is a lovely day! I move with joy and ease. I love and approve of myself just as I am. I live in a safe and secure world. Every experience is an opportunity to learn and grow. I speak peace and love over our country. I am at peace. 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
