Mid-Week Oasis Moment – Say Thanks to a Teacher

For this Mid-week Oasis Moment, I was inspired by the 
The Awe-manac – A Daily Dose of Wonder by Jill Badonsky. 

(From the page for February 27th)
Written in the style of a Farmer's Almanac, each day of the Awe-manac offers Soul Vitamins (quotes), Awe-servances (Birthday shout outs to inspiring peeps through the ages), Aha-phrodisiacs (fun ways to turn on your creativity), Doses of Mirth (funny stuff), Journal Juju (creative prompts) and more.

I love that I can flip open the Awe-manac on any day of the year and find a little creative inspiration. Today I happened upon the image above in black and white and decided to have a little fun creating a colorful toast of thanks to Jill Badonsky, since she's been one of my great teachers. I'll also share today's Journal Juju with you.

"Make a list of teachers or other people who have 
had an influence on you and beside their name 
write a word of two of how they inspired or helped you."

In my case I would write, "My teacher, Jill Badonsky, inspired me by introducing me to the world of Kaizen-Muse® Creativity Coaching, helping me get out of my own way and back to music, writing and discovering a wholly unexpected new career as a creativity coach and teacher myself. Thanks, Jill!

Jill Badonsky and me at a reading for her latest book
The Muse Is In: An Owner's Manual to Your Creativity in Austin, Texas
Cheers to all of the wonderful teachers we've had throughout our lives! 
What's one small way you might honor a teacher who has had a positive impact on your life?
(Hint - it doesn't have to be hard - even remembering them with a smile would be nice, wouldn't it?)

Until next time, all the best from my creative oasis to yours,
