#JusJoJan – January 4th, 2018 – Passionate

Day two of #JusJoJan!

I’m going to try to write on each of the prompts!

Today the prompt is:

Your prompt for January 4th, 2018, brought to you by the ever-charming Rosemary Carlson, is “Passionate.” Use it any way you’d like in your post. And make sure you visit Rosemary at her blog, “Rosemary Carlson, Writer” to read her post and say hi!  😀 Here’s her link: https://rosemarycarlson.com

Thanks, Rosemary, for a great prompt word!

You can be passionate in so many ways, passionate in love, passionate about something you enjoy, passionate about your beliefs.

I am passionate about my family. I think that would come as no surprise to those of you who have followed me for so long. My family mean the world to me, and I can’t even fathom the thought of a life without them around me. My husband, my children, my parents, my siblings and their families… Without them, I wouldn’t be the me that I am…

I am passionate about my job. Teaching is a vocation, or so I believe, and I go through so much stress at work, but I wouldn’t change it, because ultimately, what I do shapes the futures of those children in my class.

I passionately believe that a smile is the cure for everything. When you smile, even if you are down, certain hormones are released that help with happiness. If you are smiling, even the toughest situations feel just a little easier to handle. Equally, if you smile at someone else, you never know, that smile may have been the positive sign they were looking for, to make their day better.

And right now I feel passionate about my bed… the sickness bug has hit our household, as of 5 am this morning, so there are at least two of us hugging bins/buckets/sinks/toilets… wonderful start to the new term…

No school for me today, methinks…..

See you tomorrow!

    thank you for the reminder about smiling (honestly, I can’t NOT do it anyway – I don’t know why that is) and its effect on others. I don’t see random people just smile anymore – its very odd.

      People keep themselves to themselves so much. You appear odd if you smile or greet someone as you walk past. I made a great friend… an older gentleman… in the grocery store because we kept on passing each other tgen smiling. He stopped me and said it’s so rare to see a smiling face walking around nowadays. And we would bump into each other every week ! A lovely man!

    We share the same passions (except for the teaching one – although that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate teachers!). I have made it my mission in life to try and make at least one person smile everyday for just the reasons you list. Great post.
