It's All About Perspective

Look around and notice possibility is everywhere - Maya Angelou

I love me some Maya Angelou, she represents to me a demonstration that everything that happens in our lives we can use positively. Her life was a testament that excuses are non! whatever has happened to us we can use it in some way for the elevation of yourself and those around you

I listen to her voice and it comes in my head when I want to give up "be a blessing to somebody, be a rainbow in someone else's cloud and see how you move forward" and I did that. as small as it is, a kind word, a smile. sometimes even silence, just listening. Can you imagine if we all did that? In our own small way, every little bit adds up. 

when we get caught up in our own lives complaining about small things, be a blessing to somebody, when the ego takes over, be a rainbow in a cloud

when we get trials, turn them into triumps, look them in the eye and see the possibilites because its all about perspective

Peace

Inspirational for both year groups. Forms 3 and 5. They were at the edge of their seats. prodding them to plan and even when things do not go as planned... to never give up when faced with life’s challenges
