Happy New Year!
Will be a fantastic year. 2020 taught us so much and shared so many blessings. We truly learned the meaning of “find the silver lining.”
And here we are- on the doorstep of a new year full of new adventures. I am not one for formal ‘resolutions’ as I work so hard to set those each day- connecting with myself as the hours move along. I do though choose a letter each year and focus on positive attributes that start with that letter and make a conscious effort to celebrate them each day, constantly reminding myself of those words, the emotions attached to those words and the actions that I can put behind and around them…
For instance- the letter C- Creative, Celebrate, Calm, Contemplate, Connected, Confident, Courageous, Certain, Committed, Clarity- you get the idea. It has served me well over the years- just that daily reminder of a strong and positive word to guide me through each day.
So, I think- why not do that with your child….maybe a letter every two weeks. That way you are getting through the year with a simple way to not only get to know the alphabet but assemble a list of notable words for your child to build their constitution- HA- yet another good ‘C’ word.
Let’s start with A and B- place the letters in a place where they can be seen and noticed often- on the fridge, in their bedroom. Then create note cards with one or two words a week that start with those words and create a way to begin the process of positive affirmations for your child.
- Awesome, Artistic
- Beautiful, Bold……and so on.
Two letters a week- I can only imagine the power behind such a shared exercise. Have Fun!
