Message From Our School Counselor
Happy Holiday JHCS Family,
It's the end of the year, and we made it! Looking forward to 2023 can bring peace, newness, anxiety, overwhelming excitement, and many their feelings. For many, this is when we think of what goals we want to accomplish for the new year. The official definition of a goal is "the object of a person's ambition or effort; an aim or desired result." This year I want to encourage you to refrain from setting goals. I encourage you to create a vision for this new year. The official definition of vision is "the ability to think about or plan the future with imagination or wisdom." When we set goals, we aim for a result. When we do not get the desired effect, inevitably, we have feelings of failure, frustration, shame, and guilt. We would never wish these emotions on our loved ones, but why do we do this to ourselves? Explore what your vision for the new year will be. A vision is planning with imagination. A vision is fluid and flexible. There are different ways you can create your vision. Below are some ideas to help you get started.
Create a vision board
Picks a word that will give your year a vision
Pick a saying
What areas do you need to explore more vision in
Whatever your vision is, remember that it is yours and not to be compared to anyone else because your vision makes you who you are. You are wise and know yourself better than you think.
My vision is that you all have a happy, hopeful, healthy, and fun 2023.
