The Choice Is Yours

Spring is in the air, and it’s all I can do to not want to be outside all of the time.  Before we know it, school will be out and that’s how I greeted my students this week.  If your child is not wanting to finish the school year strong, teach them the difference between optimism and pessimism.  I took that opportunity while coming back from spring break.

You can think like this:

Pessimism

Or you can view it like this:

Optimism
Optimism

This was my board on Monday morning. It’s all about how you look at it.

The choice is yours. Every day, every way.
The choice is yours. Every day, every way.

My problem is that I enjoy weekends and vacations too much.  But! When waking up, not in the mood, faking it until I make it often turns that day around.  And so far this week, the optimism is paying off.  You have to go either way, so take Mary Poppin’s advice: “a spoonful of sugar.”

Hope you’re enjoying your April!
