Circle, not just a shape

A circle is a round-shaped figure that has no corners or edges. Have you heard circle used to describe in different ways? When you think about a circle, you visualize the shape in your mind. A circle is a perfectly round shape—meaning any point around its curve is the same distance from its central point. “She is not part of that circle of friends.” “It is so important to have a circle of trust.” “The circle of life is part of the Lion King.” Many examples of the use of a circle as more than just a shape, but symbolic in the meaning of the words attached.

Why are we afraid?

“Stop to look fear in the face.”-Eleanor Roosevelt

Fear is one of the basic human emotions. It is programmed into the nervous system and works like an instinct. As infants, we are equipped with the survival instincts necessary to respond with fear when we sense danger or feel unsafe.

Fear helps protect us. It makes us alert to danger and prepares us to deal with it. Feeling afraid is very natural — and helpful — in some situations. Fear can be like a warning, a signal that cautions us to be careful.

Like all emotions, fear can be mild, medium, or intense, depending on the situation and the individual. A feeling of fear can be brief, or it can last longer. Fear is an emotion we need to discuss more as we continue to prepare ourselves as we move through, lead out of and learn from the global pandemic and all of the violence we have experienced.

Seeking Mentors, Role Models, Coaches

I am so thankful to all those individuals in my life who have been a part of helping me develop, grow and continue to learn. If you surround yourself with others who, by their words and actions, help to make you a better person, then you will find success. I have been blessed to have so many wonderful people in my life.

Having individuals to help you at any point in your career is meaningful. I have changed from education to writing, and I have so many individuals who support me. Growing in your life journey is powerful and influential.

A Good Laugh, Joy and Fun

Make a plan to include in our days for a good laugh, joy, and fun. We will stick with the plan and never cut our time in enjoying our life.
