Over the weekend I encountered an ex student. I’m not normally good at bumping in to those I’ve previously taught; I panic I won’t remember their name or, worse still, anything about them at all & it’ll be dreadfully awkward.
She wanted to thank me, she said, for the positivity I’d shown her while she was in my class.
I’d never even asked.
It’s time to revisit positivity & optimism; it really can make a life changing difference to those in our care.
