Who we are...

Who we are...

charmed by choice, the blog has been a long thoughtful walk through choices. Ultimately, choices to be resilient.
Our family is one of the thousands of real life examples from this recession ...
we have experienced jobloss, mounting debt, property depreciation....
After spending some time hovering in the freak out mode...we have decided there is a choice to be made.
We can choose to stare at all that's challenging us,
or search and concentrate on all the incredible examples of resiliency.
Come along and be amazed at how many people live resiliently...
recovering finacially, emotionally, physically, spiritually...
We've all been told not to stare... but I invite you to stare at all that's resilient.
Let's be inspired and inspire each other.

April is the Month of the Young Child

It's never too late to get on board supporting the development of young children.
In Michigan, April is the month dedicated to focus on the young child,
I propose that's just the month to get the ball rolling.

We all know what we say and do impacts young children.
I found this video highlighting what it would look like if children immediately imitated their parents.

If the scenerios were true, it would be so much easier to
"catch ourselves"
and be the example we want to be more consistently.

As an Early Childhood Educator, along with my experiences while developing this blog, I think a lot about the way we've learned to consume and how we can begin to purposefully change not only ourselves, but teach others about consciously consuming.

My next addition to the blog will be to add a
"home school" tab, including tools to shape our children's ideas about consumerism.
In no other area is the
"know better do better" concept played out than in our impact on children.
