Hey fellow sandtray nerds!
It's officially spooky season, and even though 2020 continues to be incredibly meme-worthy (see below), there are a TON of things to be excited about!
Like did you know that TODAY, October 5th, there are six national holidays??
- World Teacher’s Day
- Amazon Prime Day (yes, it's a national holiday, hush)
- National Be Nice Day
- National Get Funky Day
- National Child Health Day
- National Kiss a Wrestler Day (yeah...again, a real thing lol)
So, we encourage you to take a moment to embrace how truly laughable 2020 has been, and then celebrate one (or more) of these fabulous holidays!
Maybe you take time to thank your child's teacher for their effort and presence during this unprecedented school year...Maybe you order something fun for yourself or a loved one from Amazon... Maybe you do one nice thing for someone and encourage them to pay it forward... and maybe you get funky (whatever that means to you, lol) and kiss your favorite wrestler (we have some pretty great wrestling miniatures...just sayin)!
Moral of the story is have some fun today, and remember that even though this year continues to kind of suck... we can always find something to smile about and be grateful for, even if it's just free shipping...
Sometimes the best treat is being able to look at a situation, accept it for what it is, and let it go...As therapists, we carry so much for out clients, loved ones, and ourselves, and sometimes our containers get heavy. So, enjoy these lighthearted memes about the weirdest year in history... let's laugh and get through this thing together!
That's it for today!
Don't forget to come join the discussion in The Sandtray Movement FREE facebook group. We love hearing from you!
And be sure to check out the next edition of the Ally where we will be talking all about where to find super awesome Halloween miniatures and how these can be used to express different themes in the sandtray! You won't want to miss it...
Til next time,
