I realize it has been an insanely long time since I have posted and I’d say I’m sorry, but you’ll soon realize why I’m really not.
At the end of last school year I made the mixed-emotion-filled decision to leave my position for another position teaching K-3rd grade students in another town nearby. With this change came a lot of learning and personal growth. I have learned to fall completely in love with my job again, and in turn, with myself again too.
2017 was a very turmultuous year to say the least and I am still healing from it in many ways. The beginning of 2018 was better, but still quite challenging and emotional for me. Then, after learning that I got a new job, I broke my dominant wrist. Between the frustration, the pain, and determining that I had been prescribed too many pain medications without being taught how to detox from them, I decided that enough was enough and I needed to start taking care of me…I mean REALLY taking care of me!
Now, I listen to podcasts, read self-help books, bullet journal (my new addiction), go to dinner with the women in my family once a month and meet with an amazing group of self-empowered women once a month. I am back to regularly scheduling time to work out and I feel great- most days.
As my first post in a while, I want to keep this short and sweet. I wanted to let you all know that we all falter and sway, but it’s ok to fall down 7 times as long as you stand up 8!
Enjoy your day doing whatever it is that sets your soul on fire!
