Words of Wisdom

A New Step

Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.
~ Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment

For many, nothing brings as much comfort as life remaining the same. It's safe. It's familiar. We know how it works for us and what to expect. When we feel the winds of change blowing in our direction it can be unsettling. Fear of the unknown is natural, but don't let that keep you in a state of inaction. There is a purpose to change, just as each changing season is crucial to planting, harvesting and resting. Change is essential to growth. Try to embrace each new step, not as something to dread, but as an opportunity for new beginnings and great possibilities in the cycle of life.

With something to think about . . .


School Tube is a website dedicated to the sharing of videos created by students and teachers. School Tube allows teachers and schools to create their own channels for sharing their students' works. School Tube also provides excellent how-to resources, copyright-friendly media, and lesson plans for using video in the classroom.

Happy Birthday!
