Bringing the Joy is “An Act of Resistance”

Bringing the Joy is “An Act of Resistance”

A great friend of mine, Greg Garner, shared this blog with me this morning. This quote from the blog truly resonated with me:

So this year for Lent, I’m giving up criticism and self-loathing. I’m fasting from hopelessness and fear.

Not because anything right now warrants it, but because hope is an act of resistance.

This is why I decided to use the #BringTheJoy theme in my posts on social media and in my blogs this year, because bringing the joy and pointing it out is definitely an “act of resistance”.

I am fortunate to work in a school district that often brings joy to my day naturally, but I never want to take for granted that this is done with great intention and deliberation, not by happenstance. Every day. Bring the joy. Purposefully.

Thanks Greg. Thanks Megan!
