... a favour?
No not that kind of favour!
I would love to see new deviations I haven't seen before. Or, as I have been fairly busy lately, if I've missed one of your works you love, link me to it please! Please link me to one or two only.
I will comment and/or fav it!
Life's been quite busy lately. In three weeks time, after my holidays, I'll be working in another Early learning center. Two centers.
Then the next term, I'll be working in Kindergarten, and after that, Primary!
I've been offered a position to teach over seas by next year, either in China / America or New Zealand. I'm thinking of China because I'll be able to teach the children English, learn Mandarin, and be sponsored (fully paid) to stay there for 5 months. It's only a thought at the moment because so much else is going on...
I'm reading a book at the moment called "The amazing results of positive thinking" by Norman Vincent Peale. It's an awesome read. It has every topic from failure, security, fear, pressure, better health, marriage, anxiety etc. I particularly find the anxiety topic the most interesting seeing as I'm a diagnosed sufferer. Lately I've been the happiest I've ever felt.
One of my favourite parts of the book is this quote:
"1. Thank God you have difficulties. It's a sign you are alive.
2. Learn to stand back from your troubles and take a calm survey of them. The best way to do this is through practice of quietness. In quietness and peace, take a level of look at your problem.
3. Use your full mind power to analyze your difficulty. Then systematically chip away at it, bit by bit.
4. Think positively about your difficulty. Believe that you can overcome it. Do this and you are already well on the way to victory.
5. Learn the spiritual-practical method for handling a difficulty.
6. Let persistence work for you. Keep everlastingly at it, and you will eventually be victorious.
7. Grow to the highpoint where you can look down at your problem, and then use your problem to help you grow.
8. Calmly take life as it comes. Deal with your difficulties with controlled emotion and steadily keep on working for victory...."
