  • Positive Thinking

    Posted by Communication Services at 10/24/2014
    October is a long month. Not only is it 31 days long, but it is sandwiched in the middle of a very long stretch without a break in our school calendar. We have Labor Day on one end and Thanksgiving on the other. In between is October ... a very long month. In addition, people all across our district have faced adversity. From losing loved ones to regional concerns about the Ebola virus, challenges have arisen that have tested us. During these times, I look for a positive thought to help me through the day.
    I recently read The Carpenter by John Gordon. Gordon is the author of several books about staying positive through adversity. In The Carpenter, he says: “I have to learn to talk to myself instead of listening to myself.” Hmmm ... what an interesting thought about how to stay positive. Gordon also includes this writing in his book:
    I vow to stay positive in the face of negativity.
    When I am surrounded by pessimism, I will choose optimism.
    When I feel fear, I will choose faith.
    When I want to hate, I will choose love.
    When I want to be bitter, I will choose to get better.
    When I experience a challenge, I will look for an opportunity to learn and grow.
    When faced with adversity, I will find strength.
    When I experience a setback, I will be resilient.
    When I meet failure, I will fail forward, toward future success.
    With vision, hope, and faith, I will never give up and will always move forward toward my destiny.
    I believe my best days are ahead of me, not behind me.
    I believe I’m here for a reason and my purpose is greater than my challenges.
    I believe that being positive not only makes me better, it makes everyone around me better.
    So today and every day I will be positive and strive to make a positive impact on the world.
    Inspiring words to help us all get through this long stretch! I know it may sound a little strange, but I challenge each of us to talk positive and not listen to our own negative or discouraging thoughts. I have seen how hard everyone in our district is working and how many hours you are devoting, and I know that combination can sometimes take its toll. I encourage you to be the positive voice to ourselves and to others. And take heart; Thanksgiving is just around the corner!
