I love the idea of changing the way we think by focusing on the good things around us and being kind. We can't teach positivity and kindness if we don't authentically model the behaviors and attitudes ourselves, as teachers.
Great ideas and reminders! Thank you
I like the idea of conscious acts of kindness.
The two areas I would like to start doing are gratitude and conscious acts of kindness. Thanks for sharing.
