Do You Feel Like Giving Up On Your Dreams?

My son’s third grade class started this school year with reading the book, “Wonder,” by RJ Palacio. It’s a great book for everyone, not just kids. I won’t go into much detail about the book in case you haven’t read it. A central part of the book is the sharing of precepts by Mr. Brown, the teacher of the main character, to emphasize the importance of kindness.

Joza’s class has been doing weekly reflections on the precepts. Here is one precept that he chose to reflect on. I’m sharing it because (1) I’m feeling pretty proud to be his mom, and (2) he’s so right about going for our dreams! “Never give up, even when you are at a tough situation.”

Do you feel like giving up on your dreams? Do obstacles seem like they are in your way? If so, let me know. I can help.
