This clip provides a great opportunity for discussion for both the parent world and education system. What a fitting song and a wonderful reminder to not judge a book by its cover. Read the pages — there is much to learn.
As I was cleaning out my office, I came across some cards titled, Manifest Your Magnificence for Kids, and one comment jumped out at me.
It reminded me that I AM are the two most powerful words in the world, for whatever we put after them becomes our reality.
So . . . be mindful of how you finish the I AM sentence because it relates to what you end up thinking of yourself and how you feel.
One of my favourite times of the day is bedtime with my son and daughter. It’s amazing how much they open up to us when we take time to cuddle with them, so my husband and I rarely pass up this opportunity. The topic of conversation with my seven year old was a disappointment that he wasn’t letting go. So the conversation was to not look back because it’s out of his control and to look forward where a difference can occur.
I reminded him of the journal we gifted to a few (we kept a digital image because we liked the message). There’s no one to credit as the journal had nothing on it but the price. Funny how a few carefully chosen words can empower and allow a place in which to hang our thoughts.
Be bold. Take risks. Live life freely. Lead by example.
Trust your gut. Say what you feel. Mean what you say.
Express gratitude. Believe in your power. Exceed your expectations.
Dance the night away. Skip down the street. Don’t take no for an answer.
Be your best self. Don’t look back.
