I am thankful for the wounded foot soldiers who practice courage during hard times in their life. Over the weekend, an amazing foot soldier (we will call her Dancing Eyes) suffered a devastating loss. Despite her struggle, she has been a teacher and an inspirer. She is empathetic to those around her, making everyone feel helpful instead of helpless.
Wounded Foot Soldiers With Amazing Attitudes are Awesome Teachers
The National Association of Independent Schools lists 25 traits great teachers have in common. Here are a few:
- Teachers love life and show it!
- These world professors share their soul, exposing the world to teachable lessons.
- They model the behavior they wish to see.
In fact, special foot soldiers are great teachers. While my heart cries for Dancing Eyes, my mind and soul soak up the lessons. Despite her shock and grief, she modeled the behavior I want to mirror. She has bared her soul and handled herself with grace despite the fact that life has not shown her any mercy.
Wounded Foot Soldiers With Amazing Attitudes are Remarkably Inspirational
Dancing Eyes continues to keep everyone updated. She was authentic, gracious and open. Her post revealed more than her grief. It revealed her big heart. She eased the shock and disbelief for everyone else by sharing what happened. Despite her grief, she comforts everyone around her. Her realness, graciousness, and openness are as primitive to her soul as breathing is to her body. I am not one easily impressed; however, I welcome inspiration. I am grateful that I have such an inspirational foot soldier in my life.
Wounded Soldiers With Amazing Attitudes Are Easy to Support
I thank God for the amazing people in my life. Even so, Dancing Eyes is beyond amazing. She’s like a unicorn, very rare. She is consistent. An inspiration. A girl’s girl and a guy’s dream. Though she is the most wounded, she knows the soldiers around her have been hit with shrapnel. She is guiding us through her tragedy – helping us feel as if we are helping her – when in fact, she is helping us.
Lavish the Incredible Foot Soldiers in Your Life With Gratitude
Soldiers like Dancing Eyes are my kind of heroes. They are authentic and open despite the fact that they go through the same things the rest of us do. They teach, inspire and take care of us whether the sun is smiling or the sky is angry. Tell the incredible foot soldiers in your life thank you. They shine bright, even on a gloomy Monday. Remember foot soldiers, gratitude improves your attitude and increases your blessings. GM everyone!
