If you are reading this, thank you so much for hanging in there! I am acutely aware that asunshinyday has been very quiet for the last 6 or so weeks. It has been holiday season here and I needed to spend time with my family relaxing, reconnecting and being.
My year is looking a little different as I have a contract of 3 days a week working with 5 and 6 year old children. I am so excited about relating and getting to know the kids well and seeing them learn and develop as little people over the year. I am still planning on blogging, probably only on Tuesdays and when I have things to share! I am also really hoping to redesign this blog page with the help of my daughter…..
I am really happy to have found out that I missed reading information on Positive Psychology. I love how practical it can be and the fact that here on my blog I can write things to not only remind and encourage myself, but also others in ways to help our families flourish.
To kick off the year I want to share a quote I came across in my diary – apologies, I am not sure where it came from. As I reflected on the past 12 months and the year ahead I realised that often both adults and kids have expectations. However, if they don’t work out how they are thinking, it can be really upsetting. We need to have open minds for what lies ahead, open minds to be able to learn different things and open minds to allow those around us to be different to how we think they should be!
