The Seasonal Change

13 May

It’s been a week of happiness and breakthroughs. I don’t know if it is because it is getting warmer and sunnier but it is so great when the smiles on faces around me get more frequent and lasting. Last week I spoke of the student who lacked confidence on such a level that I caught tears in her eyes. How great it was this week after a few more days working with her when she literally bounced into the classroom last Thursday with a smile which I swear hit both ears! The enthusiasm was like, wow! Suddenly, she has realised that she can have it too, happiness , contentment and all the things she wants. She seems to have discovered her inner confidence and is ready to use it. Now that’s what I’m talking about!

It is a state of mind that I wish for so many people. It is difficult sometimes to see all of the wonderful things happening around us, I know this as much as anyone else. Sometimes it takes others to point it out to us but I discovered much to my joy that there is no shame in seeing It for myself. We as a society, as a world community, don’t celebrate our positives quite enough.

 

Can you even imagine what a wonderful sight it would be if people recognised that everyone has something to give, something that is needed and wanted. The happiness it would bring to the world would be a thing to behold. This is why I will always be a big fan of John Lennon, he had vision, as did Martin Luther King and so many inspirational others. We actually don’t need to fight over anything. There is plenty for everyone and it comes in so many different flavours too. My students are seeing this now and I couldn’t be more pleased.

I wish you a week of all the flavours of happy you would want. Taste it, it’s lovely! See you next week 😀

A Balancing Act

22 Apr

I have said it before, there is nothing like exam times for highlighting issues with the way people feel, think and behave. I am not a politician, nor would I even purport to understand a politicians mind but surely, like everyone else they can see that the budget will never be balanced if tomorrow’s leaders are lost.

Honestly, most of us would love to power on through every glorious day we are given and not pass any of our thoughts on to those younger than us. I am as guilty of this slip as the next person however am conscious of it and work hard on keeping my mind open to all the lovely things that happen everyday. In this way, I hope to pass a good habit on to my children and my students. No matter what happens, cuts in jobs, cold winters, rising prices, there is absolutely always something to be thankful for! Start your day as you want it to proceed , with a smile, a stretch and a big thank you!

With this habit comes belief in yourself that all things are possible. Life is great, you have it, yours is special and can be any flavour you want it to be. This is so important at exam times. Imagine the power of that feeling when sitting in the exam hall.

So now I have to name those students who have inspired me recently and believe me, this is not to take anything away from those who have inspired me along the way Ms Kenya Barnett, Mr Khaiyo Powell, Mr Noel Davies, Mr Joe Gerardo, The Amazing Mr Nathaniel Nelson-Roberts, Mr Leigh Ramsey, Mr Dwaine Roberts, The talented Ms Nadège, I could carry on and on really. Even those not here know I have pure love for them.

And to the teachers I had who taught me to love and believe, I owe them and try to give as they gave to me. Especially Ms Elaine Carabin, Ms Eileen Leatt, Mr Europe Singh.

In our minds we all have these lists. They keep a smile in my heart
