The learning adventure begins as millions of families make their way through the triumphs of acquiring new skills and knowledge while resiliently riding the sorrows of failure. The school year is like one massive bootcamp or as I like to compare it to CrossFit. Individual members of families, (children, moms, dads, grandmothers, grandfathers, and educational staff) are all engaging in their own goal setting for mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual self-improvement. At times, balance is lost. The family ship, the classroom, or relationships feel like they are taking a nosedive, and maybe they do, but nothing remains static and eventually, desire and love prevail as the family team pulls together and the will to fight for improvement prevails. I believe that even the challenges and failures are part of our strength training journey, ultimately bringing enlightenment. Remember, I’m an optimistic fairy with my bag of glamour!
