Over the last week or so, I’ve been working back through The Happiness Advantage (book that started this series), transcribing into my journal the quotes that jumped out at me. I can’t help but wonder if I’ll blog through some of them or not…
You know how, in the process of wrestling with thoughts & ideas, you make them more your own? In that light, journaling through them would be part of that wrestling.
Remains to be seen if I’ll do that or not, but for now, let me tell you about…
- For a couple of hours, it looked like two of our kids’ NAYC trip was in jeopardy this summer (North American Youth Congress (NAYC) is a biennial event which, in 2017, hosted over 33,000 young people). I panicked. The kids have been looking forward to this for months. I tried to remember to look for the positive, but it was a stretch. In the end though, a quick email clarification reaffirmed that it would be possible. Hallelujah!
- Today was the kids’ first day back at school after a two week break. This also meant a more quiet day for Liz. I was a bit more productive as well. Soph had an big oral presentation that went particularly well and Dominic’s scheduled tests were pushed back a couple of days.
- With a bit less traffic at home, I was able to dig further into a pile of marking that’s been waiting for my attention. I often procrastinate because the thought of getting into it is draining. That being said, when I do get into it, I enjoy seeing what the students have done and giving them feedback to help them improve.
