The Small Moments

It might have been the piles of snow or the dark grey mornings but this winter has seemed busier and a little too long. While whipped up in the frenzy that comes with busyness, it was wonderful to be jolted by unexpected, small moments.

Small moments including…Image

  • a free parking pass from a kind stranger
  • a week of brilliant sunrises
  • a voluntary ‘good morning’ from a middle school-er
  • a giggling child on their way down the hall (who knew attendance was so much fun)
  • coffee with a  friend
  • an encouraging tweet
  • a thank you email

It was amazing how one very small moment could help refocus an entire day.

So it got me thinking.

As a teacher leader, do I need to focus on the small moments a bit more? Name them, share them, celebrate them.

The snow may have melted and the sun returned, but I reminded of a need to focus on the small moments moving forward.
