Counting the Stars
Since you are always sharing ideas with us, your students, about
ways to make our selves happier, better people, I thought I would
share something that I do that I believe helps me a lot, a lot.
Anytime that I am really angry/mad/upset/stressed about something
(this is rare), I go outside at night to a quiet place where I am
alone and count the stars, (sometimes I count them just through
When I start to count them I am still thinking about my own worries,
and eventually I will forget about what’s bothering me and
will just count away...its nearly impossible to count the stars
because at first glance, there’s only a few in the sky, but
the harder you stare, the more you see the little ones that seem
like there not really there after you blink...its a strange way
to relieve stress, but some how counting the stars always outweighs
my worries and makes everything better.
