How many of your students, kids, players, clients, or even perhaps co-workers would benefit from hearing this story? We all know that chronic anxiety and depression are impacting kids at unprecedented levels. Then again, how many of us – adults – would benefit from considering how this story applies in our own lives? You’ve got some problems too, right? I know I do. We all do. If you are trying to do the work, make a living, and pay the bills as a teacher, administrator, counselor, coach, or parent; you’ve got significant pressures and stresses coming at you from multiple directions. I have found, however, that these pressures only really sap my energy and enthusiasm when I ruminate on them – when I think about them endlessly and worry about them – like the prof holding the glass of water in our story. It’s time for me to set down the glass so that I can enjoy the day and the opportunities that today provides. How about you?
Until next time….Laugh a Lot, Love a Lot, and Have an Excellent Edventure!
