P. A. C. O.

Paco’s message to children (and adults, too!) is clear and easy to remember:

There are blessings in everything – look for them. As you see the positive in your life, you create more positive in your life. Be a positive presence in the world.

Accept yourself. Repeat everyday, “I love ME.” You are who you are, so celebrate who you are. Be your own best friend. Treat yourself with the love and care with which you want others to treat you.

Share how you feel. Ask questions. Apologize when necessary. Don’t worry what others think or how they judge you. Express yourself.

Always keep your heart and mind open to ideas, experiences, other people, and opportunities that life brings.
