My GOD & family: GOD is my strongest support! I cannot imagine my what my life will be like without HIM. Without the guide of His holy words, compassion, love and forgiven, I could not do anything.
As you get older you find out that true happiness is not in how much you make or how many degrees you have or how big your house is or how fancy your car is. It’s finding peace and joy and a calmness in your life that will soon become the most important thing to you. My daughters and their families are what matters to me. Things that are of quality, not of quantity: We share and laugh out loud. We always do our best and have fun. We are often loud and even silly. We make mistakes because we are real. We forgive each other and say I am sorry. We give big hugs and stick together. We Show Love!
Effective communication: Cellphone and computer; The cellphone is the connection between relationships and communications. When I can’t talk to my family and co-workers face-to-face, I can always pick up my cellphone and call them. What a great way to keep in touch! My cellphone and computer have every features I need to keep updated on what is going on in my environment. I could survive without these items but with modern technology improvement, I would not want to go back in time.
Work/School Early Head Start children and co-workers; My work is a support system for people to feel good about themselves. When you have a close friend at work, you feel a stronger connection to the company, and you are more excited about coming into work every day. You attach yourself to the company’s purpose and collaborate better to create success for the business. The children are the fuel that light my fire each and every morning; they fill the void in my life in the absent of my granddaughters and they show me love/ respect. We are developing, growing, and learning; together. It would be very difficult at work without my students and co-workers, there would be many lonely and boring days, little effort made for productivity.
My online colleagues and Walden’s administration staff; Good colleagues are those who know that WE is more powerful than ME. With the support of my online family, I have acquired more confident in completing my Master’s degree. I have learned a lot from my colleagues and professors including participating in extensive group discussions, receiving feedbacks and comments that has helped improve my performances and achieve desirable goals
Challenges regarding supports I would want and need: The first and important challenges are trust/conflicts. An effective support system is build on trust and respect among all participants. Conflicts must be avoided or eliminated before elevating in a serious matter. Support systems should demonstrate the ability to be dedicated to achieving the goals of an individual or group. No one should feel insecurity about what they are trying to accomplish instead have confident in all aspects. Last important challenge: Continuity relationship is the result of bonds sharing, cooperating, and collaborating within the support system during and after completing a task or project. Some people form long lasting relationships through an informal or formal support system. Support System is a network of people who provide an individual with practical and emotional support.
