“When given the choice between being right or being kind, choose kind.”
Dr. Wayne Dyer
WAYNE W. DYER was an internationally renowned author and speaker in the fields of self-development and spiritual growth. I’m starting my Valentine’s Day Guide with a quote from Dr. Dyer because it was the first precept assignment from Mr. Browne, Auggie Pullman’s inspirational English teacher from the longstanding NY Times best-selling book Wonder by R.J. Palacio.
Mr. Browne’s precepts (or rules about important things), are an important part of his class, and the story. Every month he assigns a new mindful teaching that his students have to write about at the end of the month. His students are also able to submit some of their own, which makes things interesting.
You may have seen my post in January about the “Year of Wonder.” This new movement to #ChooseKind was started by Random House Children’s book in celebration of Palacio’s story that continues to inspire millions across the country to show kindness, every day. If you were lucky enough to see the heartfelt movie starring Julie Roberts and Owen Wilson a few months back, then, most likely, the positive message still affects you.
To help keep these sensibilities close to heart, consider the Wonder jewelry line for Valentine’s Day – available from 10pm Fashion online athttps://10pm.nyc/collections/wonder. Priced from $8 to $12, it is perfect for the TWEENS and TEENS in your life to show them the importance of doing the right thing.
