Living with my Dad on a daily basis was like two ships passing in the overcast foggy atmosphere of little sun, here in ‘Up North’ Michigan.
I saw a video with a child assigned each week to greet his/her classmates each day with a greeting of choice for the recipient – a high five, hug, or something else.
My mother when we were little called us to the day with ‘Rise and Shine’.
So I asked my Dad if he was game for this.
High five, we have to look in each others eyes to land the hands, that is good hand eye coordination, and a hug? Which side? Both!
It is now a regular part of the day, and we are getting more playful - a hello that sets the day anew. To have that success so early in the day sprinkles confidence for the challenges yet to come, which is nurturing.
How do you start your day?
