The end of the school year is approaching rather quickly and I am not sure I am ready for it. Last year around this time, I had to say goodbye to a couple coworkers that I truly cherish and it has been so very hard this year without them. It truly has. There are always changes as a teacher. Each year is different. However, when you work with people that make you laugh, make you think, and can be yourself around..it is so hard to be without them. Every single day I miss them still and it has been months and months. This year, I will say goodbye to even more coworkers. Next year will be even harder than this one. It is hard to believe what happens in a year.
I try to remain a positive person so when I get down about what WILL happen or what HAS happened I try to remember my favorite quote…
The funny thing about this quote is that if you “google” it, you will find that everyone is credited with it from Eleanor Roosevelt, Bill Keane to Winnie the Pooh. But the message remains the same. You never know what will happen in the future, we remain focused too much on the past so what we need to do is just look at today, appreciate what we have and be happy for what we have for it truly is a gift.
Speaking of looking at the bright side, I saw a duo today that made me smile. They took bullying to a positive side. One of the performers had been bullied so much that he started writing poetry to deal with it. His poetry then turned into music. So today’s song is a new one for you. I hope you enjoy and please listen to the lyrics…they are truly touching.
