A lesson from my daughter

My daughter, Lauren Elizabeth, is our school district wellness coach. During these distressing times where students are uprooted from their usual routine and are required to work remotely with their teachers, there are people like my daughter (I’m clearly a fan) who shine a light in the darkness.

Here’s one of her daily e-lessons (one that we should all embrace).

Change is the natural way of things.

When things feel different or difficult, remember that we are being given the chance to grow stronger. When the wind hits the trees it forces the tree’s roots to stretch and grow just as, when our students are asked to learn in a whole new way from home, it makes them stretch and grow. Be proud of how much you are accomplishing in this situation that nobody ever before you has experienced. Take a moment today to be grateful for yourself and for your resilience and perseverance.
