Weekly Word Inspiration : WALK

Weepy Word Inspiration : Walk

WALK. Take the first step.

Would you rather go the way where paved roads lead? Or would you choose unpaved roads that have seen and felt a few footsteps?

Are you ready to meet the challenges at the next bend and see what’s waiting for you at the end of the path you have chosen? The choice to go the path that you think is best for you is something that should be pondered.

Every step you take might lead you closer to your destination or farther from where you would have wanted to be.

Walk, take the first step and see where it might lead you.

Weekly Word Inspiration : FOCUS

FOCUS 2017

Focus is that one word that I always tell my students whenever their attention to tasks needs to be 100%. Focus is that word too, that I need to stay on track with the tasks I need to accomplish, be it a little thing or something major.

Social media has somehow made us lose focus on the things that we should be giving importance to. Do you have time to read a good book or that time has been spent scrolling the social media feeds of other people?

Do you have time to focus on your goals or have lost the time meant for these because the focus was given to other pursuits that were not really worth the time and effort. Have you given focus on how you should be working on how to be a better person instead of spending time looking into other people’s lives? Have you overshared so much of yourself that you forgot to keep the special things just for you alone or maybe just between you and your loved ones to intimately share?

I hope that this word, focus, gives me a clear visual path to be able to be a better version of me. I also hope that 2017 will be a year to remember because I have focused on what is more important to pursue and experience with joy in my heart.

By the way, if you focus hard enough, say hello to that little creature that blended well with its surroundings.

Among the many benefits of doing jigsaw puzzles, these three points stand out.

1. Physical Skills: as the child manipulates the puzzle pieces to fit together, eye-hand coordination as well as fine-motor skills are developed.

2. Cognitive Skills: memory enhancement, problem-solving, shape and color recognition are just a few learning skills enhanced during jigsaw puzzle activities.

3. Emotional Development: for those who are having difficulty putting the puzzle pieces together, patience is slowly being developed as the child puts the pieces together.

Jigsaw puzzle activities can also be given as a goal setting objective that progresses from a few pieces to multiple pieces as the child becomes more adept with the activity.
