Let’s not forget when the storm ends, what we learnt during this time of reflection about how to looks ourselves and each other.
Living our values means that they should shape our actions and our behaviours. Too many people talk about their values but do not walk their values.
I am good at making time for other people, but I have had to teach myself how to make time for myself.
We are all navigating a storm. We know it is happening, we know it is gaining momentum, we know it is heading in our direction. We don’t know when it will arrive exactly, but we know it will come.
Gratitude is an Attitude – it is said that by practising gratitude and being grateful that we will be happier.
Converting virtual connections into real time friendships has been a gift that I didn’t expect to receive
We explain empathy to children with the phrase “putting yourself in someone else’s shoes”.
We may be falling down at the moment, but we will get up. We may fall again, but we will keep getting up. We are stronger than we think and more powerful than we know. We will not allow this invisible predator hunt us down. Together we will beat it.
Watching the madness unfold via the news and following the crisis management activity of my former school leader and Headteacher peers I know I could, and that I should, be doing more to help.
I believe honesty is a gift which helps us to grow.
