Sunrise Attitude. It is a way of life. That person that looks grumpy. You know the one I am talking about. Suppose they had a really bad weekend. Someone they love is lost. Their child was all kinds of misbehaving. Money issues… pick one. For some reason they are having a bad day. Everyday may start out that way. Ours is not to understand why, unless they choose to involve us. Maybe that person is you. Are you a Grinch? Greet that person warmly. With a smile, a handshake. Compliment them on their attire. Did they get a haircut? Doesn’t really matter, but if you see this person regularly, nearly everyday, did they get a hair cut? Sometimes, all it takes to brighten the day of another is a simple compliment. A kind word. If this person works with you, compliment them on something that you saw them do.
Today has been fabulous for our youngest. No behaviors this morning and now we are waiting at the doctor’s office and he is calmly sitting here waiting his turn. No fidget’s no running around, just watching other people interact with each other (which as I explain later can be kind of creepy). This rocks. Even if this is the only time this year that it happens. Celebrate the good ones. ;). Cherish all of them good or bad. Tweet #fighting4answrs
So I spent Friday and Saturday attending the Partners in Policymaking sessions that are being offered in our states capital. It was amazing. We spent Friday afternoon developing vision plans for the next five years. We did this with the help of a wonderful facilitator named Jenn. Allin all, the whole class had a few laughs and learned about structuring vision plans into the form of a tree and its many branches. The leaves of the tree were the steps needed to accomplish the goal (branch). The trunk of the tree represented where we wanted to be in 5 years. I did my vision on our youngest son getting back into public school and getting through Junior High. Want to know what my number one goal is in getting him through 4,5,6,7, and 8th grade? Understanding. Understanding of what a Traumatic Brain Injury is, and exactly what his diagnosis means
