"I've come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element in the classroom. It's my daily mood that makes the weather. As a teacher, I possess a tremendous power to make a child's life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration. I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or de-escalated and a child humanized or de-humanized.” Dr. Haim Ginott
"It's my daily mood that makes the weather."
Is this not true in every aspect of our lives? Even when we are home alone watching TV. Our mood makes the weather where ever we go and with whom ever we touch.
How do you want to live your life? Not for others, but for yourself. If you find yourself frustrated, angry, or sad maybe its time to do a little digging. Maybe it's time to step-out of that feeling. Maybe it's time to find your sunshine.
What makes you happy? When you smile the biggest, when you laugh the loudest, what are you doing? When you feel most at peace, what are you doing? Who are you with? What are you most thankful for? Who are you most thankful for? How can you make time to do those things? Even if just 10 minutes a day. Time for you. Time for what re-charges you. Re-engergizes you. Takes care of you.
I believe your sunshine is right in front of you. You just need to take a step forward to find it.
