Words of Wisdom #SOL18 30/31

I am joining Two Writing Teachers for the Slice of Life Story Challenge.  I appreciate this space for writers to tell their stories and connect with each other.




"I don't have any words of wisdom.  I come to understand."  

Those were the words she said to me as we sat down to process this week's events.  She came to me in her role as the literacy instructional leader, but more importantly, she came as my friend.  Her words made me stop and I laughed, saying that they were profound words...words worthy of splashing across a sign to hang where everyone could see.  However, I wasn't joking.  I meant it.

"I don't have any words of wisdom.  I come to understand."

What would happen if instead of coming to the table with all the answers, we came to listen and understand?  I know it's something that I work on every day as a wife, a parent, a friend, a teacher and literacy coach.  It's not easy for me.  My natural tendency is to come up with a solution immediately (or even come to a conclusion before I understand the whole problem...not really a very good trait).  I have a million not so pretty stories of this character trait not working out so well for me.  

What would happen if we all gave each other the benefit of understanding and assuming best intentions?  So many hurt feelings would be avoided.  

Each morning, I begin my day with meditation, writing my gratitudes in my journal and setting an intention for the day.  I learned about creating a "to be" list from another teacher leader and friend.  I ask myself, "What or how do I want to be today?"  If there is something going on with the girls, my intention is often to focus on being patient.  Sometimes my intention is to be present in the moment and enjoy what comes my way.  

Today my intention is to listen to the message my friend gave to me.  

I want to understand for the sole purpose of gaining insight to what others are thinking and feeling.  

I don't need to have any profound answers or solutions.  

I will come to understand.

  1. Those are words to take to heart. So much more is accomplished when we understand.

  7. I love your friend's words. I COME TO UNDERSTAND. I need to remember those, at work and with my boys. Today I went with my oldest to the Medicaid office and then to the Mental Health Clinic for a shot he gets every month. He said he wanted me to see what he goes through every day, and it was definitely an eye opener. We had the best talk in the car, and I think it was because I was just too floored to try to come up with answers. Thank you!

  32. The Programming Homework Help service providers don't need a lot from them to get the job done, not even a lot of cash. Their order placement process is concise and straightforward, and their Java Homework Help experts are very swift with emergency orders. I ordered in a few minutes and got back the solutions within the shortest time possible. I wholeheartedly recommend this service to other budding programmers like me.

  33. My online research for the best website that provides top-ranking Statistics Assignment Help has settled on statisticshomeworkhelper.com. Despite a few negative reviews, I was convinced that it's the best Statistics Homework Help provider that I should work with. After my first order, I proved that my research results were accurate. I've been using the service for three semesters now, and this is one of the experts that has helped me get my order done. I appreciate it.

  34. I've discovered that they're fully reliable with all Matlab assignments. I passed my test! I wanted an expert that could help me score the best marks in my class, and one of Matlab Assignment Help experts with a Master's Degree in Software Engineering did it! He even exceeded my expectations by getting almost everything right. I'll use him for all my remaining Matlab Homework Help.

  35. This is the only Economics Assignment Help service website that I've seen with real experts' profiles that reflect true qualifications and experience. The other ones only show off fake high qualifications to lure unsuspecting clients into their fraud scheme. I received stellar-grade solutions that earned me a round of applause from my classmates and lecturer alike. Meanwhile, thank you for their fast service and overall professional treatment. I'll indubitably come again for your unmatched Economics Homework Help.

  36. The company's good-grade guarantee makes me feel satisfied and relaxed. Indeed, they go out of the way to deliver the best Programming Homework Help grades. I got the best of their Python Programming assignments. My grades shocked everyone in my class, including the lecturer, who praised the way the solutions were arranged in a genius way. Asking for a hand in Python Homework Help up to the end of my course will always make me the best student, and that's what I must do.

  37. I didn't understand why the customer service officials awarded my order to a rookie R programmer. The lady was fast but not accurate. She didn't fail but got me only 51 marks. I don't want to complain a lot because this is the first time you've done this to me. However, I must let Statistics Homework Help know that I'll choose my favorite R Homework Help expert next time. Meanwhile, thanks for the assistance.

  38. I needed a flawless paper but the one Matlab Homework Help sent needed a bit of fixing. What made me forget the mistakes was the score I managed; it was 91%! Thanks a lot and please keep the Matlab Assignment Help expert that worked on this assignment for me. Each time, I'll go for her help so that I keep scoring top grades.

  39. I tried to find all the things that indicate an untrustworthy assignment help website on this platform in vain. Then, I decided to try out their Economics Homework Help to see if it could turn out great. Guess what? It was great, and I have every reason to praise the organization so that its Economics Assignment Help services can reach more students. Thanks a lot, anyway.

  43. They'll still remain my best statistics advisor despite having done my last Bachelor's degree statistics assignment last week. Throughout my university studies, They provided me with unmatched Statistics Assignment Help with leasing scores and the quickest service ever. I later recommend your SPSS, STATA, R,EXCEL and Statistics Homework Help to my friends, who're also very pleased with their services. Cheers, pal!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Their solutions were original, which is a reflection of knowledge and experience. The Programming Homework Help agents all to be determined in helping students excel rather than getting money from them like in lost other sites. That's the spirit we need from seniors like you. Meanwhile, the Python Homework Help you offered me was excellent. I scored the highest grade (A).

    ReplyDelete
  45. Hello? What happens when Matlab Assignment Help solutions haven't met my expectations? Well, I'm not saying that I'm a victim, but I want to know this so that in case I make a grade request and it's not met, I know what to expect. Moreover, how much do they charge for such Matlab Homework Help requests? Before I leave, I'd also like to know their tutoring rates. I need a full week's tutoring service (4 hours each day) to catch up with the syllabus.

    ReplyDelete
  46. How do you handle revisions? No one can be perfect always and therefore revisions will always come. As an Economics assignment help expert, do you give revisions a priority? More to that are the revisions free or do you charge for them? I am looking for an Economics homework help expert who will deliver my assignments on time and who will always give revisions a priority.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I was very nervous when I sent my first project for Statistics Homework Help online on their website. While it was my first experience with them, it was also my first-ever attempt to ask for such a service from an online source. Their experts then surprised me with peak grades and professional service. I also appreciate their timely delivery and easy-to-understand solutions. Meanwhile, I recommend that for all types of Statistics Assignment Help. Cheers!

  48. It's eight months down the line since I registered for Programming Assignment Help services, but that's not the news. There hasn't been any failure from their side; neither a delay nor a bad grade! That alone deserves a celebration! C Homework Help services are the best thing that has happened to me at college. Thanks for their support

  49. Finally graduating. My communications system assignment results are out and that is a clear indication that I am now all set to graduate. The Matlab assignment help expert who handled my paper did it well. I just feel like involving them in this graduation ceremony because they helped me a lot throughout the course. I will always recommend it to anyone looking for help. I cannot forget how desperately I was looking for experienced Matlab homework help solvers when I found them. Thanks for the four years we collaborated.

  50. Do you offer Economics homework help in Australia? I am looking for an Australian Economics assignment help expert for my economics assignment. I will not accept any tutor from another country. Therefore if you are not from Australia recommend one from me. My assignment relates to the Australian economy and only an Australian economist can handle it well.
