One of my favorite parts of our weekly program is the opening discussion. Tonight with our beginner group, we focused on gratitude and why it’s good to be thankful. Beyond sharing the things many of us take for granted, we all agreed that having a spirit of gratitude helps keep us grounded through difficult and challenging times.
I’ve found that these talks enhance our skating time, setting the tone for the excitement of trying something new, and facing challenges head-on. Kids have the capacity for incredible insight and depth—giving them the chance to share openly is not only enriching for them, but also for everyone listening ✨
