It is that time of month again when we like to take a break from our typical post of providing a creative idea or concept in order to take time to reflect upon the past month. For those of you who are new to the blog Claudia shared with us (after we hit 5000 visits to the blog) that the name highlowaha comes from a tradition she uses with her family each night at dinner to facilitate conversation and help to learn more about her children's day. She asks each person to share their high from the day, their low from the day, and then their "aha" or what they learned that day.
Claudia has used this tool with students, staff, and just about everyone else imaginable and now it has become our own tradition here at HLA.
The process is simple. We ask for you to leave a comment with your high, low and aha from the last month 18th-18th and one lucky poster will be selected at random to receive a Ray shirt of their choice.
I'll get us started and you'll take it from there:
High: Katie arriving in town, cutting my hair (it needed it desperately), Bal getting a promotion at work, watching Lily learn new things.
Low: Work has been all consuming lately and has me bogged down. I don't like that feeling at all.
AHA: If you work hard and are loyal that will be recognized and pay huge dividends. If you are valuable only because of your knowledge but are lazy and unmotivated or have a bad attitude it doesn't matter how valuable your knowledge is.
There you go. So how about you? Take a moment to "stop and smell the roses" and reflect upon this month with us.
Signing off until tomorrow...
