I know I said this before, and I guess I’m going to have to get used to it, but being a teacher is different than being an assistant. When I was an assistant, not once did I ever go back in the summer for meetings or to get the classroom in order. But, I will be doing it this year. I feel like my summer is winding up so fast.
I may as enjoy this time to relax and unwind because the hustle and bustle will start again soon enough. It’s only July and it’s already time to get ready to get ready to go back to school. When I get paid next month, I will go shopping for Dakota, David, & Phillise. I only need a minimum of about $600 extra to do this. When it comes time, I will post my plan like I did last year about how I plan to make this happen. God made it happen last year, so I have no doubt in my mind that He is going to make it happen again.
I love that children are so honest. People say that little kids are cruel because they say how they feel. I love it They’re so honest with themselves and everyone around them. Life is so much simpler when you’re a kid. I would take the opinion of a kid over an adult any day. Why??? Because a little kid will tell you, not what you want to hear, but what you need to hear. Although there are some adults out there who will do this also, for the most part, it’s a little kid who will tell you the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
I wrote/said all that to say that I am still harping on this struggling thing that I’m dealing with. It’s like the same thing, but in a different capacity. I’m talking about feeling guilty for the way that I feel. I don’t give myself permission to feel the way that I feel.
The other day I wrote about giving myself permission to do something different. Today, I give myself permission to feel how I feel- no matter what it is. Even the negative stuff. As of today, I give myself permission to be a kid again!
