"Only when compassion is present will people allow themselves to see and feel the truth."
I read an article by @benjaminphardy
this week. It confirmed a lot of what I experience. For me Excitement really is my Super Power! Excitement is my top purpose emotion. By this I mean, when I feel excited, all other emotions are possible for me. But without excitement, I can't access love, I can't access joy, I can't access hope. Excitement is key for me and when I focus on doing what makes me excited, I notice the people around me get excited, too. It's the best :) Here's the article: https://tinyurl.com/ybmy362u

's book Claim Your Power, life changing and eternally grateful for that! <3
My heart opens when I read this. It fills with hope for what is possible. It fills with hope for our next generation, that we are, right now, taking steps to build something better. Right NOW.
Good helpers are good eaters…

Make "not knowing" a celebration rather than a failure.
Remember this, the only way to grow is through "failing" so the word doesn't even work, there is no such thing as failure if we can help our children celebrate what it really means.
Help bring up the energy of celebration, not disappointment, when something doesn't work out. When your child doesn't know something, this is cause for excitement. I like showing my students that I'm excited they don't know something, it means we get to learn it together! It means I get to experience and witness them learning something new, and this is a gift to me. Celebrate with your children the things that might not be celebrated by others. <3 How could you celebrate your child's "mistakes"? <3
