Have you ever heard the expression “you can do anything if you put your mind to it?” Well the same is true for our ability to learn. Our mind is always growing, always learning new concepts. Imagine what it would be capable if we put it to the test and challenged it once in a while?
The Brain Is Always Learning
Teens, try introducing your brain to something new once in a while and see how it responds. Did you discover you have an ear for language, or maybe a natural ability for mathematics? That’s your mind at work. And parents, perhaps you could introduce your children or teens to something new and see how they respond? You never know, you may find yourself learning something new as well!
Have you started learning something new or introduced your child or teen to a new subject? Tell us about it, we’d love to hear from you!
We all face difficulties in life, and sometimes these challenges can become overwhelming. We may begin to see ordinary situations as another obstacle or setback in a long line of grievances. But what if we took a moment and looked at things from another perspective?
Everyone Could Use A Little Understanding
This video raises the question, “what would happen if we had the ability to see the struggles of others?” Not just figuratively either, but quite literally. How would this change the way we see our own difficulties? Would we feel less alone in our plight, or even reach out to help someone with a greater need than our own? We would love to hear your thoughts!
All of us have obstacles we must overcome in life, some small and some that may seem insurmountable. This video shows just how far some of us are willing to go in order to achieve our goals.
Inspiring Marathon Runner Encourages Us All
In 2008, Roger began a challenging goal: to lose weight, get fit and run in the Boston Marathon. His motivation wasn’t only for his own health but for his niece who was born with Cystic Fibrosis. Along with raising money for treatment and research of this disease, he also wished to spread awareness of Cystic Fibrosis.
Roger is still running marathons to raise money for CF research.
Success means different things to different people, but the feeling of satisfaction it brings is the same all over.
Whether the milestone is your own or an accomplishment of someone you love, it feels good to share it with someone – even if that someone is a total stranger!

When we are young, our parents are our whole lives. We can’t imagine a world apart from them. As we grow older sometimes other things take a higher priority, things like work, school, a new relationship.
This video is an inspirational and emotional look at one family’s experience with growing apart, and a moment where they come together again.
Family Is Truly What Matters
All of us have responsibilities in life; we all have events and obligations that pull us away from family. But are we making time for our loved ones as well? Are we forgetting those who really need us?
If you were given the chance, what would you say to the world? Would you have something nice to say?
Watch this video and see these people share their kind words with others on the streets of New York.
Nice Words Are Powerful Things
Next time you have a chance, will you say something kind to a stranger or will you let the opportunity pass you by?
Watch this report accounting the kind deed of a Dairy Queen manager from Hopkins, Minnesota.
This act of kindness was done because it was the right thing to do. The man responsible had no expectation or desire for anything in return, but sometimes others can’t help but recognize a good deed.
Recognizing An Act Of Kindness
Do we take the time to recognize the selflessness in others? Have we taken the time to pay it forward today?
These heartwarming moments are a testimony not only to the love and affection between families but to the deep commitment our men and women in the armed service must have to spend so much time away from their loved ones.
Troops And Families Reunited
In an earlier post we talked about empathy and the ability to put yourself in someone else’s shoes.
Imagine not knowing if your loved one would be injured while in active duty. Would you worry about them? Next time you learn a friend or relative has someone close to them in the military, will you view the situation differently? After watching this video, I know I will.
