As you know (if you have read much of my blog), I believe that our words are SO VERY IMPORTANT. I love Affirmations–and feel they hold immense power and authority in our lives. I even have a category in my blog devoted to them. One of yesterday’s posts featured an affirmation about our neighbors. In a way, every word coming out of our mouths IS an affirmation. But as a teacher I have heard “affirmations” such as, “I’m dumb” or “I’ve never been any good at English.” Perhaps you’ve expressed (as I have) such sentiments as, “I could never do that!” or “They have it so much easier in life than I do.”
Have you run across the wonderful short videos of Kid President on the SoulPancake website? No? You haven’t heard of either? Well, you are in for a treat! Here’s the nine-year-old and his “Twenty Things We Should Say More Often.” Please, please, please take a moment to watch it. You’ll fall in love with the kid.
