Virtues... Pick of the Week

With virtues being focused at my school on a weekly basis I have decided to start doing a Virtues pick every week and share how this virtue is impacting on my life... so here goes..

Today's pick was ...

If I try applying this to my work, I really need to learn to be less judgmental and allow people to have their own views and opinions. As a teacher there is a fine line between teaching and controlling what others think. We have to be careful not to cross that line. Teaching is a service that should not be taken advantage of and I do consider myself blessed that I help educate others in a subject they will practice for the rest of their lives.

If I apply it to my home I have to take the time to truly listen to my loved ones and by supportive of what they want. I have to hear what they are saying and allow them the chance to express themselves without fearing of being judged. I love them and with Humility I can show them how I truly feel by just being there.

How would you practice Humility?


  1. Good points! I'm a teacher, too. You're right, it's difficult to find the line between judging and teaching. The hard part in my life is remembering that just because my husband doesn't do things my way, it still works.

  2. I think it's so important to reflect on judgement (even in our own thoughts). I imagine that you are an amazing teacher!

  3. I think this is a great concept. I'm sure you will inspire many others to do the same. I practice Humility by trying to always praise others when credit is due; so many times people do not give others the praise deserved.

  4. love these points!! i bet your an awesome teacher

  5. These are great points. For me, it's remembering that it's not all about me. ;)

  6. Humility is a hard one and a virtue many people lack (unfortunately). I feel I try to exercise this by not talking when I should be listening and remember that my point of view is only one in a sea of so many.

My Version of Fall.

I have been seeing on other blogs beautiful pictures of the ever changing and eye stimulating Fall season. Honestly living in Trinidad limits your experiences of the changing seasons and seeing how spring turns to summer to fall and then winter. All I have is endless summer greenery. All I have is the constant warm weather and lush green rain forests.

So I have been living vicariously through other blog admiring the Fall pictures and sometimes questioning if it is really true. Then I had a beautiful sunny day yesterday and got to spend the day just lying on a beach and soaking in the sun. So I decided to give you all my version of Fall. And see what we get during the Fall Season.


 I visited a beach house in Blanchisseuse Beach and it was attached to 3 different bays. It was fun just splashing in the waves, and fun exploring each bay in the warming sun.

This was a bird's eye view of the bay that had clear green water and little watery caves to hide under. My son really liked…

Hate is a strong word.

When you live on a small island like I do in Trinidad, you really do not want to be too outspoken about terrible things happening to someone you know, because it is almost as if you are talking about it happening in your own backyard. But the fact is, terrible things do happen and unfortunately it sometimes happen to people you know or people who you cannot ignore.

In the last month there was a unforgettable incident of a little girl being attacked and physically taken advantage of ... and this rocked out entire community. Mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts, granddaughters and friends were really disturbed about the attack... because you do feel as if it has happened in your back yard! For a few weeks no one felt safe in their own homes and everyone was whispering about the ever changing rumors of the whereabouts of a man, who manage to physically hurt 1 and mentally hurt 100s.

In my heart I do feel sorry for the young girl and pray that through God, family and friends she can be a su…
