Albert Einstein reminds us not to judge too harshly:“Everybody is a genius but if you judge a fish by it’s ability to climb a tree it will live it’s whole life believing it is stupid.”
DETERMINATION and RESILIENCE
Work hard to make friends with someone you don’t think you have anything in common with.
CURIOSITY + INNOVATION:
speak up and stand up!
How can we be innovative and curious in relationships, particularly around bullying? Mahurangi College proudly supports Pink Shirt Day.
“The important thing is to not stop questioning. Curiosity has it’s own reason for existing.” Albert Einstein
Make it a goal this week to show respect for others in the groups, teams and relationships you have with them.
“Be kind, don't judge, and have respect for others. If we can all do this, the world would be a better place. The point is to teach this to the next generation. “

RESPECT YOUR RELATIONSHIPS:
RECONNECT WITH A FREIND

“Only I can change my life. No one can do it for me.”

SHOW YOURSELF COMPASSION BUT TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR ACTIONS

Frank A. Clark

PRACTICE LISTENING WITH CARE
We all live such busy lives that we often only listen with one ear, we need to give the time to listen with both ears to others.
‘E rua ōku taringa, kōtahi tōku waha.'
You have two ears for listening and one mouth for talking.
“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted."
EMPATHY + KINDNESS:
PRACTICE RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS
“Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it. “
William Arthur Ward
Tell someone how grateful you are for the things they do.
