What if? Now what? How?

What if you woke up to learn your dream had begun construction? 
What if you received word that a long awaited brain-storm was taking shape? 
How would you go about this day.....
 if your seedlings suddenly sprouted right before your very eyes? 

How do you keep the zest in your day?
Where do you get your inspiration?
What brings a project to fruition?
Baby steps!!

What important journey can you plot and nurture? 
How do you move your idea to fruition? 
Where do you store your dreams?

Following your passion is paramount!
Believing in yourself is critical!!
Knowing the worth of your contribution is vital!!!

Educator, Camp Counselor, Creative Genius, Parent, Librarian, Author: 
Believe in the steadfast value of your efforts.
Know the significance of your contribution.  

Your work is so critical. 
So important. 
We need everyone to nurture that unique spark --
the spark that makes you twinkle. 
The spark that makes you sing-out-loud!

We've got to be willing to take some risks. 
Stretch our comfort zones. 
Think outside the box. 
Swim in the deep end. 
Keep putting one foot in front of the other. 

We need our big girl panties. 
We need to nurture our dreams even in the drought.

We're woven together. 
We're on the same team:
Team children.
Team creativity. 
Team literacy.  
We're all connected!!

  • The world awaits your unique contribution: BRING IT!

Tell the people in your world how proud you are of their efforts. Mr. Rogers used to  send letters and postcards daily that he concluded with the simple phrase, "I'm proud of you." Talk about a gold star! Mr Rogers? Proud of me? That's a letter to treasure!!!

Who needs such affirmation in your circle of influence? Is there someone waiting that you could assure with some simple words: "I think you're wonderful. I think you're marvelous." Maybe you could sing them a song?

Folks. It's really a WONDERFUL Wednesday. 
The kind that brings a smile to my toes. 
The kind that puts some spring in my step + hope in my heart.

These are the longest days of the year!!! 
What are you doing that will make a difference next year? 
What can you start today that will brighten the lives of others? 
What seeds can you sow? 
Begin it now. 
Get started.
