My favorite relative is my cousin Sheila. We both grew up in house full of boys, so it was so nice to have a ‘sister’
I would be filled with so much gratitude and joy! This is a life worth aspiring to live!
Only when I’m about to be in trouble for a mistake I’ve made. I’ve been trying to realize we are all human therefore not perfect and it is ok to make mistakes!
I have learned we are all different yet not one person is better or more important than another in the big scheme of things!
Rhonda- a girl I had to do a project with on college. She taught me to enjoy the beauty of a sunset and sunrise! So many others too, but I always remember this from some girl named Rhonda.
A perfect day as a kid was a day of adventure and exploring with friends!
My positive outlook, my memories and my beliefs.
I can be present and enjoy this gift of life!
I was named after twins on my dad’s basketball team. The first name of one twin and the middle name of the other. Not sure why they wanted to name me after the twins?
A favorite memory is an experience that makes me smile whenever I think about it!
I can show up and love others as they are and just be the best version of me I can be!
I have two visions I’m working towards. I am working to be healthy and to have muscle- I work out a lot and have most days (not all) become more mindful of my food choices. I’d also like to become a public speaker to share my knowledge about raising a child with a vision loss. My first step is to speak on a podcast- if that goes well then I’ll determine my next step!
My brothers with disabilities have been a challenge yet an extremely important teacher for me. They have guided my career, improved my ability to see everyone’s gifts and have taught me to find the joy in life!
I can practice grateful living when in pain by remembering daily/hourly all the things that I am grateful for. This changes my mind from thinking just of my pain to also remembering my blessings!
My students, co-workers and friends!
The sound of water (waves, rivers, waterfalls, etc) and the sound of birds. Nature sounds refresh and refocus me!
When I think of the recent lockdowns, there were many challenges test so many opportunities to be thankful for all that I have. The lockdown taught me to slow down and appreciate family time as well as downtime. A lesson I hope to carry with me!
Being grateful has taught me to take in and appreciate the beauty of nature. This has taught me to do my part to take care of the earth as I want to enjoy nature forever!!
Family- love the end of the day when we are all home together!
I attended a professional development on gratitude. Thought it was a great idea and found this site!
