I loved the way you formed plan b and went ahead, challenging yourself.<br /><br />I have had several members of my moms family die of Alzheimers, so I know it is a really worthy cause.<br /><br />I have had to execute plan b the last few years because of a health problem. It is not easy, but it is doable. It takes endurance and courage.<br /><br />I like your spirit and your thoughts on building courage.Jeanniehttp://www.electronicbabyscale.com/health-o-meter-hdc100kd-01-grow-with-me-teddy-bear-scale-for-babies-and-toddlers/noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7862653040578109197.post-3891090627546115812013-02-14T12:36:31.979-05:002013-02-14T12:36:31.979-05:00Thanks for the kind comment!

Never underestimate how or who you may inspire through being your authentic self, whomever that may be on a particular day: the camper, quitter, or climber. Turn off the sign, hold your head high, and trust that there will always be more courage challenges in life to face down fear and live fully self-expressed. Focus on what you were able to do that day and have the same kind of compassion for yourself that it sounds like you do for your family, however they are able to show and face their own fears. Sometimes it is the most loving thing we can do for ourselves to recognize our limits and trust our body. Now go out and show those colleagues all the other ways you ROCK in life!

The morning activities were fine. The afternoon was the &quot;high&quot; elements ropes course. It was 97 degrees and I dont handle heat well. I climbed up one pole to the 20&#39; level and swung down. But that was hard for me. I didn&#39;t know these people. They could cheer me on all day but if they saw me tomorrow, they probably woudn&#39;t event recognize me, I determined that the best choice for me was to stay on the ground after that. Today, a day later, I am mad at myself for not trying. My husband told me that being afraid isn&#39;t fun. Yet they told me that fear can be a positive motivator. I am sure that is true. I honestly feel if my daughter and my friends were there to encourage me the outcome would have been different. I trust the encouragement of more intimate relationships. But that&#39;s not what happened and I have to live with it and move on. I will be in relationship with this business group for the next year. I will always feel a neon sign over my head blinking, &quot;wimp&quot;.Valerie Keenerhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/12785670489383848006noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7862653040578109197.post-32861009737338512142012-07-27T01:50:40.355-04:002012-07-27T01:50:40.355-04:00I sort of wish childhood would be more like what i...I sort of wish childhood would be more like what it was.

When my daughter is discouraged because she feels that her stories are not as good as my stories I remind her that she&#39;s comparing herself to 1. a professional 2. an adult 3. a native English speaker. When I remind her of how far she has come since moving here from Ethiopia at age 8, she instantly changes her outlook and her self-esteem visibly rises (i.e. sad face changes to surprised and proud face).Jennifer Armstronghttp://www.blogger.com/profile/00848708131285108448noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7862653040578109197.post-27952788431223854352012-04-25T07:16:56.054-04:002012-04-25T07:16:56.054-04:00That Kubler Ross quotation is really wonderful.

I find timing oneself useful for monitoring how your fitness is progressing and for creating a challenge, so long as it is not used as a negative self-judgement. <br /><br />My comment to him: &quot;Mate, you were a winner the moment you put on your sneakers!&quot; had just the desired effect!<br /><br />The word &quot;fail&quot; is such a setup word (right up there with that other bogey word &quot;should&quot;) and you, of course, know that you will not &quot;fail&quot; because the terms for classification of failure/success in your challenges are different. Like my son and his running, you will be a winner just by trying.

My main point about the Wiesner book ...Well, sure. My main point about the Wiesner book is that its brilliance lies in turning many conventions on their heads. Without reasonable familiarity with those conventions, through many previous exposures to other versions of The Three Little Pigs and many other similar tales, much of the book&#39;s subtlety may just whoosh over a young child&#39;s head. It&#39;s wonderful to hear that you are providing your students with that kind of support.Jennifer Armstronghttp://www.blogger.com/profile/00848708131285108448noreply@blogger.com
