Day 158: Teaching Emotion Ocean Afterschool is straight up joy for me. I love it! I also love the messages my students write on the whiteboard at the start of class. “be HaPPY” was written by a young 1st grader:) Yes, yes, yes! In class we learn how to be happy, confident, peaceful humans by meditating, journaling, having dance parties, developing our peace toolkit, and learning skills and strategies to live an awesome peaceful life. We have conversations on real life, we share our vulnerabilities, and we do this all with respect. Respect for ourselves, and for each other. It is amazing to be a part of these children’s journey in learning skills and strategies to develop their own wellness practice of self-care and self-love. Students from 1st grade to 5th grade learning how to chill themselves out, how to lean into love, grow their courage and confidence by meditating, power poses, affirmations, and dance parties, and knowing their power comes from inside of them, from their breath, from the peace inside of them. Watching them learn all this at a young age always gets me, watching and listening to their AHA moments is amazing and pure joy for me. It is an honor for me to teach this class, and one I am full of gratitude for. It is also my dream come to life. Teaching this class is living the dream for me:) It is in inspiring others that we are inspired. A huge thank you to my awesome students and their supportive parents for inspiring me class after class!
