Sharing with fellow students

Sometimes we think we have to give or do some thing to some one for them to know that we care for them. It doesn’t have to be that way.

Just love if you are to love and care with all your heart if you are to care.  Be there for them when no one else is there.

Be the first…………

LIFE gets a greater meaning when we all lay down our in differences even if  just for a second and focus on our similarities and Issues that bond us as humans.  Let’s treasure those.
Be the first to make the step.  That’s when real love begins.

Are you the captain of your boat?

Self leadership is about is being captain of your own ship by influencing and promoting your personal development, motivation and quality of life. It is leadership from within. It involves developing self-reflection and awareness, making personal choices and decisions that contribute to personal development. it takes place in interaction with others.
