All is not lost…

I used this below during the recent NHS induction on our campus.  I just felt like blogging it.

I feel all is NOT lost on our campus.  I hope it’s the same for your workplace.

——————————————————————————————–

Character defines much of who we are, how we think, why we act, and what we say or do.  Character is what distinguishes one person from another. Those with good character demonstrate things such as respect, responsibility, trustworthiness, fairness, caring and citizenship.

Our character is shown by what we do when no one else is around.  It gives us a sense of right and wrong.  It gives us understanding that right is right, even if others are against it, and that wrong is wrong, even if others are for it.

Good character is shown when we choose to do what is right.

AND–A person’s true character shows who he or she is through words and actions.

Character is the trait that is at the core of the other three traits that have been identified – it is the backbone of service, leadership, and scholarship.

Some say knowledge is power, but power truly lies in one’s character.

The power in an individual is contained within their character.

Billy Graham, one of the most well-known evangelists of our time said, “When character is lost, ALL is lost.”

Excitement sharpens Excitement!

Just recently, I was so honored to serve on staff at a TEXAS Association of Student Councils Summer Leadership Workshop. We were at SFA there in Nacogdoches and I was the Advisors Consultant. It was such a fun time, because not only was I able to share at our advisor sessions, but I learned so much from the other advisors, got to see my super student council friends and met so many new fun and interesting people. Connections are so important and they truly do energize you!

Check this out:
As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend. (‭Proverbs‬ ‭27‬:‭17‬ NLT)
Excitement sharpens excitement!

I came home excited about so many things. I have new ideas, a new outlook on some old projects and a renewed attitude toward this vocation and calling I know GOD has blessed me with. Charging your batteries is something we must all take time to do and this workshop did just that for me!

This workshop also reminded me that being a life long learner helps keep that excitement as well. It also helps keep ya feeling young! It might even hold those wrinkles and grey hair back. (Lotion and hair dye helps a little too…hehe) So, keep learning!

Check this out:
If you stop learning, you will forget what you already know. (‭Proverbs‬ ‭19‬:‭27‬ CEV)
I don’t want to forget what I know!!!

Make connections.
Keep learning.
Stay excited…
Excitement sharpens excitement!!!

Thank you TASC for this workshop opportunity and thank you to all those who attended those fun, learning-full, EXCITING advisor sessions!!!

Here’s my excited face:

TEAMWORK!

 

This video reminds me of the pencil analogy…

You can break one pencil, but put a group of them together (like 10 or so) and there is no way you can break them.

WE ARE BETTER TOGETHER!

Words are POWERFUL!

My leadership class did this. This is just part of the presentation they did for our OC Connections Luncheon today. They did this together. I love those kids!!!
