December Powerful Word – ACCEPTANCE – Week 3

This week, we’re talking about acceptance of other people’s cultures, holidays, foods, and the way people do things. How have you exposed yourself to other cultures? How has it impacted you? If you felt that someone you were helping seemed extremely closed-minded and did not tend to accept others who were different from them, how could you use exposure to different cultures and the different ways people do things to open his or her mind? When you look at the way that you celebrate your culture, religion or way of life, do you think others might misunderstand you (have you had people misunderstand you in the past)? This week your Powerful Thought Assignment is to think about how you can use exposure to other cultures to convey a feeling of acceptance in the groupos that look to you for guidance.
