best kid gratitude statement ever…complete with diagram!

Standard

i have already posted this on facebook and emailed to my lists, but i fear the brilliance may have been lost on many…so i must repost.

at first glance, this is just a cute little gratitude bit. mini yogis student, age 8 (let’s call her rebecca, as that’s her name), makes a picture of what she is thankful for.

now, it’s the words that make this sweet, but the diagram at the bottom that makes this absolutely precious! notice the hatch-mark through “dead”…in case you didn’t catch on that being alive meant not being dead, this diagram makes that so vividly clear. now i get it! she’s thankful for her life…happy girl in bottom right.

may your life also be filled with gratitude! ♥

About miniyogis

the day before i found yoga--had you asked me--i'd have told you that i wouldn't be caught dead doing yoga. sitting around and humming? not my idea of a good time. a minute into my first yoga class--had you asked me--i'd have told you i will practice until the minute i die. and i've been in heaven ever since. more than anything, yoga taught me that it was okay to be imperfect, okay to fall. and, man, do i wish someone told me that when i was 3 instead of 30. so i started mini yogis yoga for kids, hoping to help children to be more accepting of themselves, more accepting of others, and better human beings overall. that was march 2002. since then, i've taught tens of thousands of children how to use yoga as a tool for daily life. and i've also taught about 1000 teachers around the world to date (12/11) how to teach yoga to kids. i figure between the children i've taught and the ones my grads have taught, we've likely reached hundreds of thousands of kids. just looking to make a difference in this world....
