A year or two ago, I jotted down a list of the people who’d helped me along in my life/career. I did it on a whim, but I find myself not only adding to it but also looking back on it often.
This semester, I decided to turn it into an assignment for my students at VCU. College is stressful, and I’ve read (and experienced) that gratitude can combat stress. The students turned in their lists of 10 people who’ve inspired/helped/guided them last week, and reading over them has been my favorite thing.
Who’s on your list?
