This week we share a reflection from one of our Early Childhood Educators Adam Touba, who helps coordinate our SMOOSH programs in south-west Sydney.
“Earlier today on a run, I came across this chalk message:
It really stopped me in my tracks and had me reflecting on gratitude.
I started to think about what I’m most grateful for.
No doubt, being stuck in a pandemic can be detrimental to one’s mental health.
And we know keeping active often helps us feel better.
What am I grateful for?
I am proud, honoured and blessed to take part in the 10,000 Steps Challenge hosted by Brooke Norrie, our Home Care Package Business Development Manager at SECC.
In taking part, I am able to take in the beauty of nature, breathe in the fresh air, and absorb new sights (within my respective 5km radius).
Speaking of gratitude, I owe it to South Eastern Community Connect and the great team I have.
They have allowed me to be a frontline worker in the midst of a pandemic.
I’m also so thankful for my health, for being active, and my amazing acquaintances, colleagues and family.
I AM BLESSED 💛”
Adam is one of a team of amazing frontline workers who have overcome many obstacles during lockdown.
Another Early Childhood Educator at SMOOSH, Caitlin Doolan, shared these thoughts and this photo collage recently:
Meet our SMOOSH team.
Through lockdown, we have come together and have supported one another.
These people have motivated me, made me work harder, helped me achieve my goals and made me smile.”
Keep up the great work, SMOOSH team!
