This is what happens when you never give up on your dreams

Don't let people bring you down! Stay motivated and your dreams can come true.

It's pretty normal for someone that's overweight to want to become healthy and be a good athlete. People always strive to be better!

Some sports require precise body weight or height so people are able to do specific tasks. Have you ever wanted something so bad?

When we do everything we can to achieve our dreams we can defy the law of physics! Nothing is impossible if we want it bad enough. Not even becoming a ballerina to a someone that's overweight.

In this video we see the passion this girl has to become a ballerina.

She starts training to become a wonderful dancer, but see many difficulties. Judgment by the other girls at school was one of those difficulties. That did not let her down.

We can all find ourselves in situations like these. Every dream has a route to get there, and each route has many bumps in the road and difficulties to face.

The moral of the story is that you should never give up on your dreams no matter how hard it may seem! If you love the video please let us know in the comments below!

This school replaced detention with meditation and the results are phenomenal

What would you do if you were a school teacher and your students started misbehaving? Traditionally school teachers would give detention or suspension depending on the situation.

Most people wouldn't discipline a misbehaving student by telling them to sit down and meditate, but this new strategy is happening at Robert W. Coleman Elementary School in Baltimore Maryland.

Since the beginning of last year, the primary school has not suspended a single student. Their new method of serving consequences is definitely working.

The school decided to focus on meditation as a new way to serve detention for misbehaving students.

Instead of sending children to stand outside the classroom, or go to the principal's office every time they misbehave, they get sent to the 'Mindful Moment Room'.

The school has also been seeing a nice tangible benefit from this program as well.

Philips said that at Robert W. Coleman Elementary, there have been exactly zero suspensions last year and so far this year.

Meanwhile, nearby Patterson Park High School, which also uses the mindfulness programs, said suspension rates dropped and attendance increased! Ever since this new method, kids are wanting to come to school!

I hope all schools can use this new method of giving consequences to misbehaving children!
