My EDUsis, Tara Martin, and I kicked off round 2 of the #GratitudeSnaps Challenge at the beginning of November and it was just what my soul needed. To scroll through the hashtag each day, filled my heart with such joy as educators and students across the globe were sharing the things that they were most grateful for. The authenticity, the love, the emotion reminded me that we are all in this thing called life together. We are not just educators, but moms, dads, sons, daughters, spouses, grandparents, friends, aunts, and uncles. We are people fueled by passions and dreams and given our own unique set of circumstances. Life can be full of amazing blessings and heart-wrenching struggles. Yet, when we choose to look for all that we are grateful for, our mindset shifts and we focus on the positive rather than the negative.
This month as positivity spread like wildfire across the Twittersphere, I could feel my mindset shifting and my heart filling with joy and gratitude. New friendships were formed and I felt deeper connections with those already in my PLF. To read #GratitudeSnaps from kids of all ages opening up their hearts to share their deepest gratitude was more touching than words can express. Thank you to all who participated in sharing a piece of yourselves with us. Please keep sharing your gratitude and spreading your positivity with the world!
