Sticks and Stones

Last week, I shared videos from Shane Koyczan (To this day) and Brooks Gibbs (The Golden Rule); it was anti-bullying week in the UK. These videos inspired thought on the old adage "Sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me". In fact, a line in "To this day" makes specific... Continue Reading →


The Golden Rule

Yesterday, I posted about it being anti-bullying week in the UK. A couple of weeks ago I stumbled upon a video that really caught my professional interest.  It featured Brooks Gibbs, an author and speaker, talking about bullying. More specifically he talked about empowering the victim of bullying. So much of what we do to... Continue Reading →

To This Day

It's Anti-bullying week in the UK this week. As a teacher of young humans, this is a busy time and with an increased awareness of bullying the weeks that follow are also important and focused on how we treat one another.

We move through our lives asking: wanting experiences; abundance; health, for material things. It's the natural way of life. The... Continue Reading →

Positive Change

On Friday, I realised that I've changed in an unexpected and very positive way. I'm more at ease and generally more positive. Events and situations that would normally increase my levels of stress significantly haven't as much as they would previously. The week before last, I had a lesson/performance observation (I'm a teacher). Historically, such... Continue Reading →

A Happy update

A couple of weeks ago I chose a word to focus on. A word that would be a positive focal point- very succinct affirmation if you will. I chose the word "happy" and posted about it here. I do feel a little happier and more balanced. I'm quite sensitive at times and there are periods when... Continue Reading →
