Today was the first day in a while I felt successful. I am just coming out of a few weeks of feeling lost, overwhelmed and defeated, but today I felt like I had new direction, renewed purpose, and engagement with my students and colleagues.

Do you ever have those days? They feel like a breath of fresh air, and they give you the necessary energy to push forward, make changes, and realize the good again.

I know this post is a self-serving celebration that may not mean much to the 10 people who may read my lines of exuberance, but sometimes, you just have to share a good day and try to spread a digital smile.
