From the Mind Up Curriculum, Lesson 2 on Mindful Awareness.  


Episode breakdown 


  • Everything is my responsibility.  I always ask “what is my responsibility in getting here, and what actions am I willing to take to move forward?”   
  • We focus only on our part, not on what the other person has done.  We clean up our side of the street and keep going.
  • Even if I didn’t cause the situation, is my reaction appropriate?  What am I making this mean?
    • We can’t control what happens, but we can control how we react to it.
  • Love  
  • What if I knew I would love myself no matter what?
  • See my mother the way God sees her?
  • God help me see myself the way you see me?
  • I’m learning to see myself in a new way
