A Little Positivity {#SOL16 Day 4}

I have started a bit of a tradition at my school called Positive Thinking Thursday.  Every Thursday, I put copies of a positive quote or inspirational picture on a table in our staff lounge for anyone to take.  By the end of the day, most of the quotes are gone.




I've been doing this for about three years now and it's become a much anticipated part of every week.  Friends at school will even send me positive thoughts that they find on Facebook or Twitter to add to the PTT repertoire.

Some weeks, the PTT thought is serious.  Some weeks, it is silly.  Here are a few of my favorites from past Positive Thinking Thursdays:













I think Positive Thinking Thursday has had a part in the warm and upbeat culture at my school.  When I visit other rooms, I will often find some of the PTT thoughts pinned to a bulletin board or taped to the wall by a teacher's desk.  I love that!  It tells me that quote spoke to someone other than me.

I hope you will consider starting a Positive Thinking Thursday tradition at your school too!  It's very easy and the rewards are great. 

Wishing you a positive day!

  16. Love this idea.
    I used to do a "Virtual Lounge" and e-mailed out questions a la Actor's Studio once a week. I'd ask favorite Christmas movie? or How many brothers and sisters? Favorite snack? It was fun to learn about the people I work with but don't actually get to talk to much. I love quotes, so I think I may try your idea. Thanks for the suggestion.
