Day 1 Quote Challenge: These Require Zero Talent

In my life before kids, I was a first grade teacher and I loved it! Even though I’m no longer an “official” teacher, as a mom (or dad, coach, neighbor, aunt, uncle, human(!)) I still consider myself a teacher. We all are- we all have the opportunity through our actions and words to inspire, model, and teach others, hopefully for the better.

An old fashioned chalkboard hangs in my kitchen and there is usually a quote written on it. In my ideal world, it would be a “quote of the day” or “quote of the week” but in reality, it’s more like “quote of the month.” Oh well, I try! This is the quote that has been hanging up since mid-January. It felt right for the New Year as my gang was heading back to school, sports, and other after school activities. I wish I knew the quote’s author; to be quite honest, I think I saw it on a friend’s Facebook wall and a google search showed lots of posters with the quote, but no author credit.IMG_9487.jpgI would like to thank Natascha over at Natascha’s Palace for nominating me for the 3 Day Quote Challenge. Natascha is an elementary school teacher, a Canadian ex-pat in Spain, and an incredible home cook. Her blog is full of delicious food and lovely anecdotes about her life in Spain. Thank you, Natascha for thinking of me!
