First Post – How Exciting!


Hello All!

As excited as I am to begin this blog, I'm not sure where to start. I hope people will write me questions so I don't just ramble on.
I suppose I will just compose a list of concise phrases that shape my thinking. Enjoy!

  • We are literally One Human Family.
  • Metaphors are important tools for understanding the world.
  • You are what you do.
  • Healing can be painful.
  • Language shapes thought and thought shapes the mind.
  • All you need is love.
  • Empathy is feeling with others.
  • Practice makes permanent.
  • Challenge yourself: How many people can you love?
  • Do not let anger make decisions for you.
  • Awareness is an agent of change.
  • Meanness makes you ugly on the inside.

I'm sure I'll think of more, but there's a start. I find that phrases of this kind are useful in childcare because they are easy to remember and can encapsulate a whole lesson's worth of meaning. My old dance teacher used to call them "pearls of wisdom." I'm proud to have come up with some of my own (although, a few are borrowed). I'm always collecting more if anyone has any good ones to share.
