HAPPY NEW YEAR! OK, so I am a little late with the greeting but the sentiment still applies. I hope that your 2023 has been positive so far. The month of January usually brings a sense of renewal or new commitment. Those New Year's resolutions we make with every intention of following through and beating ourselves up when we don't. Renewal is great and intentions help us set new goals but remember it is OK to re adjust and even change our goals. One thing I teach kids is that something is not always "all good" or "all bad". Negatives are necessary so that we can recognize the positives. The trick is to try to focus on the positives and not dwell on the negatives. There are so many positives, sometimes they are small, even tiny, but they do exist if we look for them. For example, I am still loving the cold weather. It is perfect for warm soothing foods and beverages (Hot cocoa with marshmallows please). I find that the more I help kids look for positives the more I recognize my own. You too can help your kids start to recognize and be grateful for the good, no matter how big or small. I am sure I have mentioned it before but an attitude of Gratitude has so many life long health benefits. I know that I am surely grateful to all of my John Adams families, teachers, and staff for continuing to support me and my counseling program! Thank you all and here is to a happy and healthy 2023!
