Humor is important. I often wonder how I’d get through some days without it. When the going gets tough, we need to find the humor, joy, love, laughs whatever puts a smile on your face in times of uncertainty – because trust me, it’s there. Perspective is everything. If you just take the time to look around you, I know you will find some. Joy, something we have been talking allot about -is tied to humor. And it is everywhere…as I have mentioned before. : )
Words of Wisdom:
Life is hard. It’s ok. For those of you among us that keep their sense of humor and move forward even when difficult times arise – you continually amaze me. In my role, I try hard to really listen and I hear allot of stories regarding challenges in the classroom and beyond. Within those personal stories, and there are many, I see courage, perseverance, and resiliency coupled with a sense of humor. Does this sound familiar? All traits we want our students to have. You are great role models and I applaud your everyday efforts.
So next time life throws you a curve ball – whether it be in in your personal life or a gift from the classroom – don’t forget to have a positive outlook and look for the humor in the situation.
