DAY 16 – What’s your mood like? #CircuitBreakerSG

Today is Earth Day’s 50th Birthday, and in the last 50 years of earth days, there is there has not been a day like it! A day where pollution levels are the lowest they have been all year! A day where we can see healing in the world!

I am sure the Earth is grateful today and if the earth shared an emoji today it would be a heart!

So today we ask you to share with us how you are feeling, whether it is a sad reaction to the current #CircuitBreakerSG news and that your local Bubble Tea vendor is closed or a happy reaction to all the wonderful things we have in our lives!

For me, my reaction is a heart! Today, I spent a lot of my time in online meetings, listening to how DAS will be moving forward in the next few years. We listened to the courageous plans and actions of those on the frontlines of Home-Based Learning as well as how we are going to raise the much-needed funds for our students who require fee relief for the educational services they need to be successful in learning.

And even though the road ahead is going to be tough, I have some amazingly talented and imaginative colleagues who go the extra mile to make sure that we provide the best service to our clients.

When I gather with my family, we like to do a round table question, “What are you grateful for?” and we all give thanks for something, big or small, but at the end, we all get an idea of how we are travelling in life and what we are grateful for.

So, What’s your mood like? Share with us how you are feeling by leaving a comment or just an emoji!
