4. Solutions to Problems by Susan Kramer


Looking back in our lives, we see that all of our problems had workable solutions, showing us that current and future situations will also be resolved. Knowing this, we can relax our tensions and misgivings about being able to cope with anything that comes up in our life.

This is the lesson to teach our kids with learning disabilities. They may already be stressed striving to keep up in school or teased by peers for acting differently. It is reassuring to hear from you that their problems have solutions and you will help them out.

Faith and trust are useful tools when recognized as allowing us to remain calm, so we can become aware of the best workable solution in each situation. In addition, by making our best effort from this point forward, we can have faith that our future will bring us closer to realization and knowledge of our underlying happiness.

Another point I want to mention is that getting up and out when feeling down, or lying down draws fresh energy into our body uplifting our spirit.

Freshly energized, our attitudes and perceptions clarify and sharpen. The grit of indecision and staleness fall away, just as a whirling strainer throws off chaff, preserving the nutritious kernel.

It takes initiative to get going. When feeling low, if we will take a moment to think back about how good we have felt during and after exercising, we will have the incentive to get ourselves out and energized again and again, relieving our down attitude and mood - very worthwhile lessons to teach all our children. Let's remember that learning while growing is more than school work.
