Living Life On Purpose

The Difference YOU can make!

Greetings,

Yesterday I spoke about the ABCs For Living both in my blog and radio program, www.BlogTalkRadio.com/VoiceOfChange

For me the ABC For Living are just as important or more important than the traditional ABCs which are taught to children from a very early age. The ABCs of Living are about one's emotional well-being, about feeling safe, respected and seen. 


 
As a teacher for many years, I personally saw the difference in the classroom when children were at peace and ready to learn vs emotionally upset and not present. When children are in a good space, contented, having had their emotional needs met, then they are able to better handle the day and in the process they are KIND.  They help each other. Such moments are just precious to observe. 

This can be compared to a child who has either come from a tumultuous morning or who had problems on the playground just before coming into class. In such situations, they are not able to sit down to learn. And if forced to do so, they will probably create a disturbance. 

EVERY INTERACTION THESE CHILDREN HAD BEFORE THEY ENTERED THE CLASSROOM, PLAYED A PART IN THEIR EMOTIONAL STATE.  

EVERYONE THEY ENCOUNTERED 
MADE A DIFFERENCE!  

Often I would have a large chart board in the classroom so a child having a difficult time could go to the board and express his feelings with large strokes on the large pad.  This did help very much. Then when I had time, I'd talk with the child to see if there was something he/she needed to share.  

When children are having a difficult time emotionally they are not in a learning mode. So, I believe that learning to live in a way that we can handle life in a peaceful manner, discussing what needs to be discussed and working out a solution that works for everyone is essential. For me this are the essential ABCs for living. 

Have you pondered my question from yesterday, which was 

As you look around, do you see a change of direction that is needed?  

Each of us have the POWER to make a difference...to create change!  None of us can take on ALL the change that is needed, but each of us can do our part!  

I invite you to enter the conversation and comment hear about the change YOU want to make. 

YOU matter!
YOU life choices make a difference!
YOU make a difference!

Is there something YOU are being called to do?  If so, let us know.  

Today's radio show is about POWER and the tremendous impact a person makes who lives consciously.  Tune in:
  www.BlogTalkRadio.com/VoiceOfChange   12 noon PST.

I look forward to hearing from YOU!

In Joy, 
sharon
