Trimble County School District…Parents, students, educators, Board of Education, and whoever else cares about this topic!

It has come to my attention that enrollment has dropped which equals a reduction in funding. Some people are upset about this financial decision. First let me say, I am so sorry our beautiful community is having some struggles with a decline in population. However, to answer those questions posted on Facebook about why? why? why? The issue at hand must first be addressed. 

Please take a look at this situation with a different perspective. Instead of pointing fingers at leaders and/or elected officials. Ask yourself, do you truly believe that the heart and spirit of this community can be destroyed by one small group of people? Your board of education do not have ill intentions. They are simply reacting to the circumstances. 

What about you? What is your community vision? How do you want to see Trimble County in twenty years? Have you sat down and thought about it? 

Over the past year, I have had the privilege to experience yet another beautiful place, Kansas City. However, my heart will always be deep-rooted in that little piece of heaven. No, I haven’t always felt or realized how precious my home is, but I do now! 

Therefore, I ask of you to be the light. Be the solution. Create a vision of how you want to see Trimble County School District. What could our leaders and board of education ‘do’ to assist in the building up of our schools? Rather than pointing out the obvious, lower enrollment – money= one less position. Begin today to think and create. 

Create a school you would be proud of! Create a vision of our community in twenty years. Will we continue to exist? That’s up to you. 

I remember being on the board of education and listening to the complaints of this parent or that citizen. My thoughts were always, “How would you ‘fix’ this problem?”

Take a moment to try this simple activity…

Look at something you have been complaining about…

Anyhing…

Now visualize what the other person or organization could do to help the image in your head look and feel better. 

Trimble County you may be small. You may be frustrated at this time. But I promise you have POTENTIAL!

It will take all of us to illuminate the wonderful qualities of our piece of heaven. Please, begin today to create a beautiful vision and begin to share it with others. Before long these issues will be a thing of the past.

You are wonderful.

Are you just complaining or is it time to change ?

As I listen to couples belt out what he or she did. I often wonder if I could record their conversation, take him or her out to lunch and tell them to listen closely. Next, I would say, “This is a test! You are no longer allowed to return home. Instead, I have arranged for you to stay at the Going Nowhere, motel off of third and main. Your instructions are quite clear. You may continue to go to work, but you may not return to your home, where your significant other resides. You may not contact them, nor question what is going on.”

I would then provide them with the recording of the awful things they said to or about their spouse/loved one. It would be up to the two of them if they join again or part for good. However, I often ponder, as I listen to people complain, if they simply don’t have enough in their lives to say something nice or if they truly hate the one they pretend to love.

Don’t you wonder? Wonder about the people you choose to have in your life. Those that sometimes you so vicariously discard, mistreat or take advantage of, if they were not in your life, how would you feel? If at the moment of your harsh words, you were told, “Okay, you can’t find any good in them, then move on.”

How would you feel? I don’t know about you, but I choose not to have people in my life that can’t say, be or feel nice about me.

When my hubby walks through that door my eyes light up! My world stops and I immediately hug him around the neck. And Slap a big sloppy kiss on him!

This writing is not to scold you. But it is to remind you…think before you speak, act and allow FEAR (False Evidence Appearing Real, Jack Cannefield),  to ruin something beautiful. Remember, what you say sends that vibration. Whether they know it or not. Also try not to forget, how you would feel if they were gone? How would you feel then?

Last little Love tip of the day: If you close your eyes and feel better without that person in your life, it is time to make some changes. Life is meant to be filled with LOVE! You can only be treated as good as you feel about you. If you are feeling less than, you are probably being critical, not very nice and mean. If you are receiving some hateful, unpleasant emotions from someone, look in the mirror and ensure it is not how you are feeling about yourself.
