The amazing Christine Fonseca is celebrating the launch of her book 101 Success Secrets for Gifted Kids and has invited her blog readers to participate by post advice they would give to children.
In order to help bring more attention to this, I will be hosting a giveaway of three education books that I've found useful while homeschooling (new copies, I'm keeping mine). All followers of my blog are automatically entered and I'll give you an extra entry for a comment, one for each method you use to spread the news about the contest (facebook, twitter, etc.), and five extra entries if you blog about it. I'll announce the winner on May 2nd. Unfortunately, I'm going have to limit the contest to people in the US.
Now for my advice coming from my favorite quote, "Pain is inevitable, misery is optional." As you go through the hard points in life, remember that you get to choose how you can react to it. You truly are in control of you. While storms rage around you, your attitude can have a greater impact than thunder and lightning, floods and earthquakes. You can be more creative, more uplifting, than they are destructive. Therein lies true beauty.
