I have so much deep respect for the educators I work with each day. So many go above and beyond to help their students the best they can. Inspiring!
When I am grateful I am much happier! There is so much good in my life that sometimes I choose not to share as I feel way to blessed. There is so much good when I look for it, and it can be humbling to know how lucky I am!
Lately this could definitely be true! My bad days are typically little nuances. I’m lucky to have a loving family, house to live in and food to eat. So many people would be extremely thankful for just the basics. This question really does remind me how blessed I am!
There are so many people whose kindness has touched me. I was trying to think of a specific time but right now all I can remember is that people have made me think ‘wow, that was so nice of them’!
I’d like to think I can be with anyone , anywhere and be a good listener, but lately I’ve found myself talking more rather than just listening, not sure if I’ve changed or if I’ve just become more aware?
The best way to ease the path for others is to be kind. Kindness offers a glimmer of hope. I do not want to add stress to someone’s overloaded path.
Travel- the world is full of wonder!
I can allow myself to receive compliments. Instead of brushing them off, making a face or giving someone else the credit, I should just say ‘thanks!’
I have become happier by caring less!
I could work towards truly accepting my son as he is rather than wishing things were sometimes different for him.
My lack of confidence impedes me from shining. I’m always afraid of being wrong, and therefore I tend to keep quiet. I am trying to work through it by realizing no one is perfect and to not care what others think. I’m still a work in progress!
Spending time in the great outdoors and my son!
I could do a lot more volunteering and helping others. I used to give way to much of myself that I had to cut back. Now I’ve cut back too much- need to find a happy-medium!
I could use my phone a lot less! I waste so much time on websites and games. I’ve already cut out over an hour most days, would love to cut back another hour too!
I would write a thank you letter to my mom. She has passed away but there are so many things I wish I could say! I would tell her how her beautiful outlook on life is so inspiring, let her know how she has shaped me into the person I am today, tell her I’m in awe of how positive she was despite all the challenges life through at her. Her coworkers often told me she is an angel, she really was in more ways than she would ever have known. I miss her!
The weeds have taught me everything! Weeds have taught me things will get better, they have made me more aware, the weeds have helped me appreciate the mundane. I wouldn’t be who I am without the weeds!
I value the love and appreciation of my family! This is priceless!!
I just look at my son. He was a miracle baby and is a daily reminder of living!
Walking in the great outdoors brings me joy. I love the fresh air and a quiet chance to appreciate the beauty!
I’ve learned that I can be patient with my brothers and the payoff is huge! I’ve learned that I like being busy better than bored! I’ve learned that discussing politics with people who are far right or left depresses me- it is good to be knowledgeable but I’m learning to turn away from the extreme political discussions!
I would love to grow in my understanding of others. I have my experiences and knowledge but wish I would understand more about why people do things, where their beliefs come from, and understand how to best relate to other people.
