Yes, We Have No Knitting.

It's been a very exhausting week and I have no knitting to show for it. Instead, a quote that I recently came across this quote and it really hit home with me. There is much debate online if this is quote is from Johann Wolfgang von Goethe or Haim Ginott. Either way, I wanted to put it here as a reminder. 

“I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather. I possess tremendous power to make life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration, I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis is escalated or de-escalated, and a person is humanized or de-humanized. If we treat people as they are, we make them worse. If we treat people as they ought to be, we help them become what they are capable of becoming.”
