Episode 37: Mr. Thornton, an influential teacher

In this week’s episode, I’m reflecting on someone who was influential in my life– Mr. Thornton. He was a middle and high school teacher of mine, and we just clicked. I tell several school stories in this episode, but especially how he made me feel that made him so meaningful to me.

I also invite you in to my new program at the end of the episode, if you are interested. I’m pretty excited about birthing this new “baby” into the world!

I give thanks for the hard stuff

I am practicing being grateful for the stuff that’s hard. The stuff we don’t normally give thanks for.

I give thanks that my mom died when I was 20. It shaped who I am today.

I give thanks for not having close relationships with my family of origin. It makes me even more grateful for the ones that are in my life daily. And it has forced me to create family by choice.

I give thanks for not being popular in school and having to face my own shame and disappointment consistently. That helped me figure out who I wanted to be.

I give thanks for not going to church when I was an older teen and young adult. It helped me see I really wanted to be there, and to return for the best reasons.

I give thanks for feeling depressed and lonely during the year we lived in Germany. It led me to life coaching and THAT is the best ever.
