Do you want advice?
YES YES YES SAYS EVERYONE!!
Actually, no. Most people do not want advice that is freely given to them. They want advice when it can help or support, but they do not want to be told what to do.
During my day job, as a school counselor for elementary aged students, I am constitently playing a game of giving advice and wrapping it in a way that people do not see it as me telling them what to do, as well as reminding them that there is no perfect answer. I love to help figure out an answer to a problem, and sometimes it just takes an outside perspective to help you along.
Like we all know, there is no book that is given to all parents, a manual of sorts. If there was, then the world would be a much different place!!
However, I would love to offer my advice to you. If you have school aged kids, specifically Kindergarten-Middleschool, please contact me with a question.
I will be happy to give you advice to the best of my knowledge. Please know that if you send me a question, I may publish it and the answer to help other parents who may not feel comfortable asking a question.

I have taken a long time to learn to deal with ‘negative’ people. It took a while to understand that often the problem is not in others but in me. Alain de Botton sums it up beautifully. When dealing with ‘negative’ or annoying people, are you sure ‘negativity’ is there altogether or do you perceive it […]

As my dreams and wishes continue to work on my project, I also continue with daily life. This past week my family has been in town and there has been little time to do my project. However, I have used the dried herbs and lavender in bouquets around the house and using the essential oil to smell when times are stressful. Here is a wonderful link to ways to destress your home with scents too.
Cheers to a wonderful week
