Mommy, bullies only exist on playgrounds, right?

Cuddled up in my mom’s lap with tears streaming down my face, this was a question I asked my mom after I was bullied at school. You see, this girl at school was bulling me. However, everybody watching would think that she was just playing […]

“Because I want to”

Many times, I do something for someone and their response is “you did not have to do that.” when I know what will make someone happy I will do it for them, not because I have to, but because I want to. Try it! It is so rewarding.

“Be a chipmunk”

I often feel like a chipmunk when I store something that I might need in the future. This just happened to me. I was filling the pews at church when I noticed that some were more filled then others. I left the more filled ones alone and thought to myself “I will leave them here until I need them. “Sure enough, supplies ran low so I went to the pews that were more filled and took the supplies from them so I was able to complete my work. Therefore, be a chipmunk; it might come in handy when supplies are low.

“You don’t always have to be right”

Many times, I have witnessed minor slip ups from people, me included, and yet they are not corrected. The person that did not correct them usually states “I knew what the person meant” I often find that these people are more respected because “they don’t always have to be right.”

“Life is hard; mange it well”

If you have so many activities that you can barely get anything done, learn how to say no to some of them. Not only will you have more time for yourself, but you will have more time for the activities that are important to you!
