“Do not wait for leaders, do it alone, person to person”

First, I am making my way to all of the blogs that requested a visit. This is taking some time as I want to fully investigate your blog. Hopefully soon I will have visited you all!

 

I like to collect thought provoking quotes, sayings, poems, and thoughts. This has always been my favorite. It was said by mother Teresa.

 

People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. 

If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends, and some genuine enemies. Succeed Anyways. 

If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyways.

What you spend years creating others could destroy overnight. Create anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway. 

The good you do today will often be forgotten. Do good anyway.

Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway.

In the final analysis it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.

~Mother Teresa

 

 

May peace find you this holiday season.

 

 

Some things you wish you could un-hear

Things Teachers hear, but wish oh so badly we never had:

“All male teachers flirt with the female students, you just only do it to a certain point, so they know it is just for fun”- a male teacher

“She dropped out of school because her dad got her pregnant”- a student

“I need to tell you that in your 3rd hour kids have been giving each other hand jobs under the lab tables when you have subs” -a student

“all public school teachers are bad teachers”- a teacher

“I am going to shut down your school and if for someone reason you save it, I will try to shut you down again next year” – superintendent

“I heard there was a gun at your school today?” “I didn’t know that” “Oh yeah it was on the news” “Oh yeah, they don’t even tell us anymore” -my dad and me

“You know she got suspended for sending naked texts to all the boys at school”- a student

“He only hit her because he was angry” – a mom about her son and his girlfriend

The healthier version of yourself

This morning was rather exciting. As I went to my mailbox at school hoping to find my contract for next year and instead found my monthly health newsletter.

I know you are all as concerned with your health as I am mine so, I will fill you in on the latest news in health industry. The one from a few months back can be found here- All you need to know about staying healthy 

 

1. Recipe for healthy living:

5 daily affirmations

3 balanced meals

2 hugs from someone special ( because hugs from creepy people are unhealthy)

2 healthy snacks

1 handful of close friends

 

2. Compression socks

The studies are mixed about whether you should be wearing them. But, all studies agree they do work in recovery. So don’t go rush out and get your compression socks too soon please make sure to wait until you are recovering from your original socks.

3. Breaking free from co dependency

Signs you are co dependent. Keeping quiet to avoid arguments, being always worried what others will think of you, If you feel like a “bad person” when you a mistake, and have trouble saying no. If these describe you, then you may be co dependent. If that is so contact a health professional as we have no advice for you.

4. Bank of Mom and Dad

Are your children living off of you? You don’t want to support them forever, do you? First, create a plan. Second, Charge them interest. Third, Require them to help around the house. And lastly, lead by example. With these easy steps it will only be a matter of days before they are off your couch and on someone else’s.

Each newsletter is concluded with a quote. This months-

“Just think about how happy you’d be if you lost everything and everyone you had right now, and then somehow got everything back again.” – Kobi Yamada

Smart girls rock

It is time I tell you why I am so smart. I was born on the same day as Albert Einstein. Thus I am a super genius.

Here are a few of my favorite quotes from him:

“Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over expecting different results”

“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used to create them”

“A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new”

“Education is what remains when one has forgotten what one has learned in school”

“Great Spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds”

“If you cannot explain it simply, you do not understand it well enough”

“If people are good only because they fear punishment, or hope for  reward then we are a sorry lot indeed”
