Week of February 6

The +10 Mindset
Growth depends on where you spend your time but also where you waste it.  When it comes to growing strong relationships, it is important to remember that relationships live and die by the minutes we choose to expend or not to expend on others. If we want relationships to grow, being protective of your minutes is probably the most important thing you can do.

Jason Price, BRHS Senior and student in Mrs. Raymer's AVP class, created this really powerful video called "Time".  The video depicts how relationships thrive or die simply by the choice between using our time with purpose or simply wasting it away.  When we use time to focus on ourselves, we lose those we care about, but when we invest our minutes in helping others, we notice that our time becomes filled with joy.

With our children or those that we care about the most, we must remember that time is all we have.  But when we invest our minutes in others, our minutes become more valuable to both yourself and those you care about.  This week, take some time to invest in the people you care about the most.  All you have is time, so use it well.
