This weekend was the infamous Loy Krathang Festival throughout Thailand. This festival is a time where people come together to celebrate life and “let go” of all of their misfortunes in life. Lanterns are set off throughout the sky as a symbol of letting go of the things that bring us down in life. This festival, and everything it stands for, has come at a perfect time. Over the course of the last three weeks of teaching, there have been many ups and downs. Teaching is such a rewarding and beautiful profession, but there are definitely struggles that make the job very demanding and overwhelming at times for a new teacher. This past weekend was a perfect way to “let go” of these struggles and look forward to the coming weeks in a positive light.
Rather than continue to talk about the experience, I put together some videos to share this experience with others. I know that pictures are worth a thousand words, but I believe videos are worth a million. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the video.
