Assets in Action: Keep a positive attitude

-A A +A
By Bernadette Lauritzen

If you have elementary age students, this week, I hope you look at your teachers a little differently.
If you have been mad because there was too much or not enough homework; if you push too hard and they don’t push enough, or the other way around, I hope you stop and think.
Who would have thought that there would ever come a day that the teacher on whose doorstep you dropped your children off at this morning, could become the shield between them and a gunman?
The questions won’t be answered simply or quickly, but we need to have some discussions.
We need to stop complaining about everything and everyone, all the time. We need to stop posting every negative thought and idea on Facebook and Twitter.
Pick two or three friends that you have hard conversations with, the conversations when you pour your troubles and travails out and then keep your thoughts to yourself.
Stop the vitriol that every negative thought has to be broadcast every minute of everyday. If you need a place to vent frustrations, if nothing seems to remedy itself, then find a member of the clergy no matter what your background or talk to a counselor or a psychiatrist.
