Sprinkles of Gratitude

As a school counselor intern, I'm surrounded by (700-800) hundreds of children a week. Sometimes our interactions are brief. With the culture of the school, and a greater openness to counseling or support staff, I'm able to engage with classrooms more fluidly. Some interventions are simply being visible to students in need of structure. Other times, in-class support can help some students focus more on positive tasks. And there is always individual and group support outside of class.

Life is hard! Sometimes it's easier to believe that we may not have a choice in life. That may be true for certain events--there is no way a person could control the weather or how damaging natural disasters can be--the event itself is uncontrollable, but what about our emotional responses to them?
