Day 1: My 27 day @TEDTalks Challenge #27daysofTED

Last week I was reminded of an amazing TED Talk after visiting with a sweet friend whose son has been diagnosed with Autism.  As she and I talked about her son's future and the obstacles ahead, I couldn't help but think of the video below.  I also thought about how lucky I am to be a part of a profession that allows me to be of service to not only kids, but adults, as well.

With Thanksgiving coming up, I decided to challenge myself to watch a TED Talk every day this month and be thankful for my career, my family, my opportunities and my impact on the world.  Please feel free to join me and use the hashtag #27daysofTED.  I would love to see what inspires you to be thankful!
