Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow. “Helen Keller”

Being absent from my blog for two months made me feel so stressful on how to find time to tackle an endless list of issues, have free time to think what really expresses my mood and write about it. When things seem so wrong or hard to solve positive thinking can only lessen the overthinking while allowing those beams of light to get thru the crevice bring tonnes of hope and empowerment.


Smiling to the sun is another way to strengthen your attitude and be surprised of the messages you are going to get. Difficulties are always present and Kids especially feel so weak to deal with or share most of the times experiencing unbearable pain and embarrassment. The thing is whom to trust to talk to or even choose to express inner feelings and thoughts. Being a teacher for 19 years now, I have discovered that kids talk when you approach them, explaining your intentions plus show those beams of light, reducing uncertainty when you teach positivity and hope.

It’s hard to share and explain your inner thoughts but the most difficult part is to share the burden.Imagine how helpless kids feel. Calmness and positivity are obtained by systematic work with ourselves, so don’t give up to yourselves, no matter what the struggles are, do bring kids closer to you, make them realize how strong they already are. Kids mimic our ways, they believe first in adults and then in themselves. Inspire your kids and students, cultivate positivity, teach them to be strong at rough waves. Positivity alters and gives place to good thoughts to spread.


Till next Rock Post, enjoy the books I chose for you. Have fun, liven up every moment of the beautiful spring around, don’t miss the chance to go out to nature and roll on the grass! You’re a kid after all!

He can’t wait to tell his friends at school, but of course, they don’t believe him. “Don’t be daft,” scoffs Ben. “You’re a dog, and dogs don’t fly.” Even Sid’s teacher shakes her head at him.

The Invisible String by Patrice Karst  (Author),‎ Geoff Stevenson (Illustrator)

“What kind of string”? They asked with a puzzled look to which Mom replied, “An Invisible String made of love.” That’s where the story begins. A story that teaches of the tie that really binds. The Invisible String reaches from heart to heart. Does everybody have an Invisible String? How far does it reach, anyway? Does it ever go away? Read all about it! THE INVISIBLE STRING is a very simple approach to overcoming the fear of loneliness or separation with an imaginative flair that children can easily identify with and remember. Here is a warm and delightful lesson teaching young and old that we aren’t ever really alone and reminding children (and adults!) that when we are loved beyond anything we can imagine. “People who love each other are always connected by a very special String, made of love. Even though you can’t see it with your eyes, you can feel it deep in your heart, and know that you are always connected to the ones you love.”



Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are? by Dr. Seuss  (Author, Illustrator)

“When you think things are bad,
when you feel sour and blue,
when you start to get mad…
you should do what I do!
Just tell yourself, Duckie,
you’re really quite lucky!
Some people are much more…
oh, ever so much more…
oh, muchly much-much more
unlucky than you!”

What is the best time to do things? Who is the most important one? What is the right thing to do? Nikolai knows that he wants to be the best person he can be, but often he is unsure if he is doing the right thing. So he goes to ask Leo, the wise turtle. When he arrives, the turtle is struggling to dig in his garden, and Nikolai rushes to help him. As he finishes work, a violent storm rolls in. Nikolai runs for Leo’s cottage, but on his way, he hears cries for help from an injured panda. Nikolai brings her in from the cold and then rushes back outside to rescue her baby too.
