I am able
Submitted by aditi on 1 September, 2017 - 19:34
I can't do...do you get this thought in your mind anytime you stuck or face with any problem or face a new/uncomfortable task. We are exploring 'empowerment' this term. "I am Able".
We don't give direct answers
We help by not helping.
We bring challenges.
We ask to think
We ask to fail
We encourage to try
We create unfamiliar works
We leave to 'figure out'
We give responsibilities to conduct session or job like accounts.
We start with writing 100 questions about a topic.
We ask to stay with thoughts rather rushing to solutions.
And so on...
Ever wondered why?
Exploring 'I am able'. Some people call it 'Empowerment '. We also call it magic inside Me! We began with our list of “how to empower the kids”. But then we decided to co-create the list with the kids and came up with their own list. Together we made a list of the actions which make us empowered - DoAble, WorkAble, ResponseAble, ImagineAble, ThinkAble, AdaptAble, AskAble, CapAble, JoyAble, AccountAble, LearnAble, ObserveAble, PushAble....together we reflected. Some expressions
- Together we reflected. Some expressions
- I understood that I am only limiting my self for only some things so I should try more things and explore more things. I wanna change my attitude of doing things. I am not expressing some of the things so I wanna express.
- So, this week's documentation is about "I AM ABLE". My first is "DO ABLE",As you can see, I did chart making this week so if a person has common cold or something like that I can give that chart as a remedy for it. So I made charts for the common cold and soar throat this week. Next is chess,in that I tried to make strategies but it didn't work out. Next is zombie game where I was running from the zombies and hiding. The next is "RESPONSIBLE" the first is pets job where I am responsible for feeding the pets and cleaning the slab where I cook. I am responsible for the resources I used in the week to keep back and care and use the resources. Nerf war is also way since I have to find the bullets I use. I am responsible for daily diet since I have to find out puzzle,law,word. "CAPABLE" is when I ran once holding pepper and I ran the whole way but I also didn't panic because pepper ran away and lost! But I found him anyway. In "JOYABLE" I want to share that I was excited for Thursday game where we had to do multitasking,and that to ,fast! It was fun!
- I'm feeling very able after my reflction. I was pushed for aqua, I was workable at mud wall, thinkable in nerf, responsible clean up, askable in suggestions, tryable craft, capable everything, do-able craft, see able nerf, imagine able craft, learn able, adaptable.
- "I Am Able." According to me i was "Responsible" while i was cleaning the toilets as i had to be sure that i am giving everybody a good hygiene.Also i used it while i was doing bed clean-up which includes sorting of the things,keeping dirty clothes in washing. The other one is "Capable"which i was while baking .I was caring about the measurement of the ingredients and also the output should be good.The other one is "Doable" which i used while i had make the hanging system of name plates. I also used it to balance the tokens while planning time.The other one is "Thinkable" which i used to think that how will i draw the design for my painting and also while i had to mix the ratio of the colours .The other one i used is "Tryable" while i had to answer the questions to the guests and also while paper folding as how to make the design in the shape of rose and how differently i can make the shapes.I also used "Pushable" while i had gone for running and i pushed myself to run continuosly for 4km .The other one is "Learnable" which i used how can i make warli paintings.I learnt it through the books and also while seeing the paintings. I also used it while i was making batti. I learnt it by follwoing instructions that what are the steps to make them.I also used "Questionable when i went to college walk and also able to ask my queries and thoughts about the working of the college. I also used"Askable" by asking Sahana about that how the psychology works and all helps does it provide. I was also able to ask people about the water not refilled in the buckets and also the things not kept in place.
- This week I feel i am able helps me i pushing myself in different tasks like in stiching i pushed myself in trying to use the sewing machine and I learnt how to put the thread above and under and how to control the sewing machine while learning how to do it i was not getting how to put the thread under the sewing machine so i tried more but i dint get in so i tried obsreving once again and i got it. i think during running i had to push my self little more or i had to decrase my speed more and slowly increase it.and while sketching wild flowers i could have tried using different material , technique and observed little more.
- My analysis is that I had so many feeling and abilities in this tiny week. and I am also happy that I was able to finish have of my PMO job and I took the job just recently on Monday this week. Then I also liked the last I am getting back into sketching again. But I am most happy that I followed my planning for the whole week. and I don't get to angry in the sports time
- This week i tought chess and even learnt chess to then i made a bit of ambro toilet wall with mud and bamboo.i worked on my pushups in my tabata exercise and i tried to work on my health and hygiene.
- My week went fast and I dint have track of time but I somehow I got litile track of time or else I would think 1 hour like 30 minutes and it was confusing and this week I got itreduced to I am able so I started with doing work with myself.

- This is my weekly documentation. I did without my mother and that was really fun. I felt very very very happy that I did by myself. Prapulla was there wih me for painting and it was nice because I now have 2 friends at Aarohi Prapulla and Advay. My painting is nice and shiny. I am now able to draw a tree with branches and leaves. That was like a real tree. It was nice to do digging and putting seeds in Active WE on Friday. Mud was loose in kitchen garden and the mud near gate area was tight and rocky. It was nice to do this all work.
