“Education breeds confidence. Confidence breeds hope. Hope breeds peace.”
Tomorrow is National Teachers Day in the United States. If you are a teacher, stand up and feel the love and gratitude! We are grateful to have a chance to officially show you our appreciation for everything you do and to collectively say a big “Thank you”! But, of course, we bow to you all year round for enriching the lives of students everywhere!
From preschool teachers to college professors and from continuing-education professionals to instructors in various arts and industries—these special people have information to share and guidance to offer . . . and really love doing it! Teachers guide us in the direction of learning from one another the important lessons of life and living.
On this very special day, if you have a teacher in your life—whether you are a student, a parent of a student, or simply a friend—spend some quality time with that person in whatever way possible. Really give him or her your Focused Attention. If you can be with your precious teacher in person, look deeply into his or her eyes and let them know from your heart what she or he has done to make you or someone you know a little smarter, wiser, more proficient, or more fun to be with. Be in the moment as you express your gratitude and love. You will be making a difference in the life of someone who makes a difference in the lives of others by their very purpose and passion to teach what they know.
If you are a teacher reading this post today, from the bottom of my heart I say, “Thank you for making a difference in my life. You taught me that I do matter and that I can change the world through my actions every day. I am eternally grateful for you in my life and enriching the lives of our children across the planet.” You have a magnificent purpose in life . . . and there is deep meaning in what you do for society.
