Something really struck me today as I sat back and soaked in my surrounds...well my surrounds assisting in my after school program...I believe ALL of us go through this no matter what age or box we place ourselves in. This being those speaking negativity, the nay-sayers, or those people that always have something to say. Maybe you decide to fight back to fuel the flame and it never amounted to anything, but created an even bigger fire. Have you been there before?! I know I have...it struck me because us adults go through the same thing whether it be our peers, co-workers, friends, family, those in our inner circle. Anyone really. We hear one thing and think it’s the ultimate truth about ourselves. Someone cracks a joke about us and we get down because they picked out a “flaw”. Someone calls you a name and your entire being changes. Someone doubts you for taking up a coaching opportunity and you start doubting if you’ll ever inspire your tribe. Someone talks down on you for deciding to make a positive life change and you hide behind closed doors, wallowing in your emotions. The thing is, if you really look at each of these, are they not the opinions of others? Are they not screaming to you that something is going on internally with the person who’s speaking and that it’s not a reflection of your being? Remind yourself that these people are not you. Remind yourself that these people have no power over you unless you give them the power. Remind yourself that it’s your life and you will do what makes your soul happy! Remind yourself that these people do not pay your bills. Remind yourself that your body is a temple and that goes far beyond the physical; mind, emotions, soul, and spirit. As I teach my kiddos; Spread kindness and positivity every day...Our world needs more of it. 🌻🌞🌜⚡️
Apa kabar? Semoga sehat selalu ya 😊
Liburan sebentar lagi, sudah tahu mau berkegiatan apa saja? Kalau belum, yuk segera bikin jadwal bersama Papa dan Mama. Itu bisa jadi kegiatan yang mengasyikkan juga lho!
Nah, untuk liburan kali ini, dengan bangga @iamjagomanagement membuat program baru yang pastinya masih berhubungan dengan mengasah skill komunikasi para jagoan. Namanyaaa... #KlubJagoNulis 🎉 WOOHOO!
Belum banyak yang tahu bahwa menulis dan membaca adalah turunan dari ilmu komunikasi. Agar kelak menjadi seorang pembicara yang hebat, kita tidak hanya perlu mengasah kemampuan #publicspeaking saja, melainkan kemampuan memahami konteks (melalui buku cerita atau buku pelajaran) dan kemampuan menulis yang baik.
Makanya yuk kita belajar dan bermain bersama kak Thya @maknyes dan kak Adenita @adenits yang sudah berprofesi sebagai penulis sejak tahun 2000-an. Kakak pengajar ini sudah banyak menerbitkan buku dan karya lepas lainnya dengan skill menulis mereka lho. Keren kaaan? Nah, ayo kita dapatkan sebanyak-banyaknya ilmu yang bermanfaat dari para pengajar #KlubJagoNulis ini. Segera daftar yaaa, seperti biasa kuotanya terbatas 😇
So a few posts ago we did some weaving at the After School Program with burlap, ribbon and large plastic needles. It was a little tricky but I thought it would be a good intro to sewing. There were three kids who said they sew at home and why can’t we just do “real sewing”. .
Well the answer is of course we can. With some help from my good friend and seamstress/needlework goddess Fawn Hill. .
Someone donated a bunch of awesome sparkly and colourful fabric (leftovers from dance costumes no doubt!) that I thought would add an element of fun to our Christmas trees. I did one side with pink or green felt and the other side with the Lycra. .
Even with Fawn’s help there was a constant rotation of about 20 kids ages 6 - 12. I didn’t get a lot of photos. 😆🤪😳

Our Resident Service Specialist, Deja, at Montego Falls Apartments offered a craft where the kids in After School Connect would create their own Fall tree. The branches were created from puzzle pieces and they painted them red, orange, yellow, green and brown. Some of the kids liked less branches and some liked a lot. The tree trunk was made from brown napkins.
November was a month filled with thankfulness at Oakland Elementary K-Scope. The students showed love to military family and friends as well as love for each other.
