Today I Am grateful for the reminders to trust in the processes you experience, regardless of how things may appear on the surface. The best analogy I heard was from Joel Osteen. (I’m not a Christian, but I love what he has to say!) He made the analogy of manure, which, of course, is made of feces, which stinks! But it’s what helps plants and crops to grow. So when some things happen, it may be downright crap, and it very well may stink. But trust that it can sure help you grow!
I Am also grateful for a really fun night with my students at Kaplan. I was feeling far more confident in teaching than I have been before – it does help that I’ve been doing it a lot lately – and so I was feeling really good about myself, and my sense of humor was bursting out of me, which really helped them learn and understand what they needed to do. My co-workers wanted to witness the comedy as they heard laughing through the walls all throughout the shift! I could see how much it helped them learn. I was very proud of them – and proud of me too!
