Each and every day we have situations in our life where we struggle.  We have something go wrong, someone let us down or maybe a tragic thing happened in your life.  We can look at each of these situations differently.  We can turn away, curl up and think that nothing is going to go right for us. People will be tell you there is nothing that you can do, you start to believe it.---------OR-------You can have...


Everything will work out....we can make it all better, with help from others and positive thoughts.  As educators we not only deal with these situations ourselves, but we are surrounded by hundreds of kids and adults each and every day that need HOPE in their life.

As you work to grow in your professional career, remember that you can be the HOPE for someone else.  Be that little voice of encouragement when others are putting them down.

Live to love today!

Be Great Every Day

I hear people say every day that, "Oh man I'm tired today, I hope today goes fast." "Really? Monday? I wish Friday would get here."  "I hope I at least do OK during that presentation today."

Do you think any of these people above thought they were going to be GREAT that day?  Did they miss a chance to make a difference in another person's life?

Be Great Every Day. Do the best that you can for other people not for yourself.  You can make a difference.  People don't realize what person they can have an effect on throughout their day.  It might be the person that you say hi to at the supermarket.  What if you paid for the person behind you in the drive-thru tomorrow?  Could you leave a note on a co-worker's desk that says-Have a good day! ?

Don't settle for being good, sort-of good or even OK.  Strive to be great every day!

Have a Blessed and GREAT Week!
