Fall Festival is coming!

Happy Sunday to all RES Families!

Thank you all who attended the PTO meeting this past Tuesday. So much information and many things coming up. I would like to call attention to our Kids for Thon, which got us a total of $1378 to donate to the cause! Yeah! Minutes will be posted soon on our website. Meanwhile, don't forget to register for the directory!

Did you know that October is Emotional Wellness Month and National Depression Education Month, among many other things? Life is so busy and there's always challenges along the way. Every now and then we think we are not good enough or we are not doing enough. Let me share something with you, it's just us seeing the problem from the inside. We are more than good enough! We are doing more than enough! More people than you know go through the same thing, similar challengers, same doubts. I found these tips to help us keep a positive attitude, whatever life throws at us. Here is the list.

  1. Write it down. List the negative things in your life… the things that really upset you and cause you to lose your cool. Seeing them on paper can help you recognize and address them when they happens in real life. Cross them off when you are able to overcome them.

  2. Let go of expectations. Sometimes, negativity begins with unrealistic expectations of yourself or others. Understand that nobody is perfect… and the imperfections add character! They make life real and interesting. If you can learn to work with that, you, and those around you will be much happier.

  3. Forgive yourself and others. Do not dwell on past mistakes. You are only hurting yourself if you do so.

  4. Respond, don’t react. Change can be difficult to manage, but if you take a breath and give yourself some time to think, you’ll find the clarity you need to respond in a positive manner.

  5. Surround yourself with positive people. Yeah yeah, we know, you hear it all the time… But if you can do that, you’ll start to see how happy & successful people think, and you’ll likely start to think the same way.

Enjoy your holiday weekend, Reidenbaugh families!!
