Today is Thursday, the fourth day of “National School Counseling Week.” Today’s message is about tapping into your network to reach your dreams.

Katy Perry once said, “It takes a village to make me who I am.” This simple quote has a lot of depth. Each one of us has a village.  Your village consists of your classmates, friends, family, teachers, school counselors, coaches, and others who surround you each day.  Your village can help you become who you want to be.  Your village is your network.

Who do you trust in your village to help you with your dreams? Who could be a resource and help you along your path to achieving your goals?  Your school counselor can help you identify your village and learn how to get support from them when needed, so make sure to stop by and see your school counselor for help!

Students, want to kick start your career while you are still in high school?  Check out the New Horizons Open House Thursday February, 8th from 5:30 to 7:30 in Hampton and Newport News.  You could take a class in criminal justice and work with the FBI, get certified in cyber-security or spend your days with animals in the veterinary assistance program.  More information is available on the school website.

Today is the third day of “National School Counseling Week” and I would like to begin today’s message with a quote from Eleanor Roosevelt.  She once said, “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”  What can you do to achieve your dreams?  Work hard? Sure. Write down your dream on a piece of paper so you can see it every day? Of course.  But there is one simple thing you must do in order to achieve your dreams-set goals.

Goals, similar to dreams, are things you aspire to do. You can have a goal to get a certain grade in your most challenging class.  You can have a goal to create a time management plan for tackling your work.  You can even have a goal to wake up a bit earlier each day so you won’t rush in the mornings before school.  If you need help with setting your own goals, make sure to stop by and see your school counselor!  Keep your eye on the prize today!

Today is the second day of “National School Counseling Week”! To celebrate, we are focusing on our aspirations.

Aspirations are defined as a hope or ambition of achieving something.  We sometimes call them starts-things you are reaching for.  Sometimes aspirations, like stars, can seem so far away that they can’t be touched.  But that doesn’t have to be your reality.  Aspirations can be anything you want them to be.  A career choice, personal wellness goal.  an academic goal, anything. If you could list one or two things you would like to achieve, what would they be?

A wise man once said, “Your aspirations are your possibilities.”

If you ever want to chat about your aspirations or possibilities, feel free to stop by and see your school counselor. Live with purpose today!
