Initiative is the will to win. It is the decision to begin right where
we are, the self-starting push that gets us over the hump in the road.
It is the smile and the quick step that gets us past what seems wrong.
It is the ability to see a rainbow when others are crying over the rain.
Initiative is a new surge of bravery and makes us stand up straight and
use our heads and hearts and not fall into envy and fear. It is a new
burst of strength that understands what it takes to get going. And the
best part of self-motivation is to follow up the will with good work,
with more faith and more courage - that this time, we are going to
strike gold! This time is a new time, a new heart, a new person that
will not wilt in the face of opposition.

Elder's Meditation of the Day - December 18
"Parents have to demonstrate the value of trust, respect and honor."
--Haida Gwaii, Traditional Circle of Elders
Children learn more by watching than by listening. If we want our
children to understand and value trust, they know it by watching how
adults live their lives! If we want the children to be respectful, they
will observe what the adults do and say to each other. We need to walk
our talk. We need to remember the children are watching.
