It's Monday, it's the first day back to the normal routine after spring break, and it's my birthday. I have been reflecting alot today and the changes I have made, the things I want to do, and the way I role model for my kids. Last week, we had a shooting in our school system. The parents are angry, I understand that, but there is a contingent that are trying to get the principal fired. They say she knew and didn't do anything about it. So far, everything is hearsay, but what I know to be fact is the child that did the shooting was expelled. He was kicked out of the school. What more could she have done? What exactly do people want these days?
Everyday, we have opportunities to talk to our children, friends, etc... Everyday, I enforce the thoughts that your actions are your actions to my kids, whether it be hanging up their clothes or breaking something in the house, or lying to their parents. Yes, I get the but she ......, or I did it because........, and I always stop and say, you are the only one responsible for your actions, period.
So, I will leave you with this thought, treat each day as it is your last, treat every person the way you would like to be treated and always take ownership of your actions!
