Happy Core Values in Action Wednesday all!
Today, I thought to celebrate Honesty with a quote my Dad always says to me whenever I am engaging him in a passionate conversation: “Tell me how you really feel!”
Two of our Summer Camp Staff and Alumni have offered advice to all of you in order to celebrate Honesty and put it into action!
From Alex Draper a past Outpost VC and Assistant Wawayanda Director: “How honest are you with your emotional self? I have looked back at things I said and did in frustration, or at a time of stress, and know that my honest assessment was that I was a jerk and someone deserves and apology. I think honesty in hindsight is a useful idea, looking back with a conscious effort to see more than your own perspective, being open to learning new things from thinking about the past in more than one way. I know I have had to take responsibility (hah!) for my decisions way after things went down, but I had to take a minute to be honest with myself about what really happened.”
From Maddy B, a MAC Girls and Sunburst Counselor: “I think that one way a camper could use honesty is in the classroom. When they don’t understand something, making sure they speak up to get the help they need.”
If you have put any of the Core Values into Action at home, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would love to share your stories and send you a Core Values in Action Tshirt!
Peace, Love, Bibbley,
