“We should cultivate the ability to say no to activities for which we have no time, no talent, and which we have no real interest or concern. If we learn to say no to many things, then we will be able to say yes to things that matter most.”—Roy Blauss
Happy Thanksgiving. :] I’m thankful for my wonderful family who always make me feel welcome and loved. I’m also thankful for my great friends, who always turn me around and set me straight when I have my head screwed on backwards.
A teacher in New York was teaching her class about bullying and gave them the following exercise to perform. She had the children take a piece of paper and told them to crumple it up, stamp on it and really mess it up but do not rip it. Then she had them unfold the paper, smooth it out and look at how scarred and dirty is was. She then told them to tell it they’re sorry. Now even though they said ...they were sorry and tried to fix the paper, she pointed out all the scars they left behind. And that those scars will never go away no matter how hard they tried to fix it. That is what happens when a child bully’s another child, they may say they’re sorry but the scars are there forever. The looks on the faces of the children in the classroom told her the message hit home. Pass it on
