My name is Christine, and this is my very first blog. I hope it reads with as much understanding as my heart intends it; with love.
It's so easy to say we don't judge, but I think it's in our nature. I don't know if it's just me, but I'm curious. I like to know if someone is ok if I think they may not be. Maybe they'll let me help or listen, or perhaps they'll say, "I'm fine." They may think it's not my business. How we want to be treated is how we should treat others with kindness, respect and understanding as best we can. As much as we are different, we are the same because we all seek love, acceptance, forgiveness and friendship. Family is a massive part of this; friendships are needed just as much. Let's all start each day as we interact with others with a smile and the knowledge that kindness is as easy to show as just that.
Be it a nod of acknowledgement, a grin, a smile or a hello. I know it makes my day!
Either way, not knowing what another person is going through is precisely why we should NOT judge others. One of the "Golden Rules" we are taught growing up is to treat others as we wish to be treated.
Today is July 30, 2023. I am adding to my first blog because it's not just about how we treat each other, it's about how you treat yourself too. I have always been more giving to others than to myself. Over the last couple of years, I have worked on accomplishing my goals even though others say wait. If I waited too long, I would never be where I am today. I listen to my gut and step out of my comfort zone. I'm relying on the fact that I deserve to be happy by doing what I love, making books, stickers, activity sheets, or whatever... for you and your children.
I am optimistic and hopeful to be invited to schools to read to the class and share my books with so many more families and teachers.
I am forever grateful for everyone's support in my dream. Thank you all!
