Take time for yourself. Life is full of bumps, turns and setbacks. Take the wheel of your life. You have more control than you realize. Sometimes we have to adjust the speed, put on the brakes and reverse course. We can do this! So often we allow others to set the stage, tell us what to do, how to act and define what is acceptable from their vantage point. So for this day, take the wheel, lower the speed, roll down the windows and slide into cruise control. You got this!!!

7 Habits of Highly Effective Kids
From: The Leader in Me by Stephen Covey
1. Be Proactive
I have a “Can Do” attitude. I choose my actions, attitudes and
moods. I don’t blame others. I do the right thing without being
asked, even if nobody is looking.
2. Begin With the End in Mind
I plan ahead and set goals. I do things that have meaning and
make a difference. I am an important part of my school. I look for
ways to be a good citizen.
3. Put First Things First
I spend my time on things that are most important. This means I
say no to things I should not do. I set priorities, make a schedule,
and follow my plan. I am organized.
4. Think Win-Win
I want everyone to be a success. I don’t have to put others down
to get what I want. It makes me happy to see other people happy.
I like to do nice things for others. When a conflict arrives, I help
brainstorm a solution. We all can win!
5. Seek First to Understand
I listen to other people’s ideas and feelings. I try to see things
from their viewpoints. I listen to others without interrupting. I am
confident in voicing my ideas.
I value other people’s strengths and learn from them. I get along
well with others, even people who are different from me. I work
well in groups. I seek out other people’s ideas to solve problems.
I know that “two heads are better than one”. I am a better person
when I let other people into my life and work.
7. Sharpen the Saw
I take care of my body by eating right, exercising, and getting
sleep. I spend time with family and friends. I learn in lots of ways
and lots of places.
