Snow Globe Season
Not to mention that for many schools a term is closing. There are exams and papers due and grades to submit. When I think about the 8 Conditions under these circumstances they sparkle. Obviously I believe they ought to be a year round phenomenon in schools, just as evergreens are ever green. But at this time, even with the swirl of activity, and maybe because of it, they light up. Belonging wraps people together more tightly. Heroes become more present. Fun & Excitement twinkles. As students collect toys for those in need, Leadership & Responsibility shines.
The real challenge is not to keep our heads about us mid-shake, it's how to keep our hearts about us. I mean that in every punny way you can think of. Try hooking your weighted-down sleigh to the 8 Conditions for the next week and a half, and see if it helps you pull through.
