Sometimes I need a little something to get me through the last day of the work week.
No. I am not talking about a liquid lunch at the local Wine Bar. I am a teacher for gosh sakes!
(That isn’t to say that it never happened when I was an office worker though…)
I am talking about INSPIRATION.
In the past, by the end of the school year, I was useless on Fridays. The students were tired and bored, I was frustrated and exhausted, and the day would just draaaaaag. However, I would always have something planned for that evening – a yummy dinner, an exciting date, or a fun night out with friends – to get me through the day.
Now that I am back in work, I am remembering how exhausting Fridays can be. Knowing that I get to see Annabelle at 5pm when I arrive home is definitely motivation to get through the day… but it doesn’t help me with my desire to act like a lazy bum teacher. So what do I do?
I look to my students – who SERIOUSLY LOVE SCHOOL for energy. And I turn to The Universe for guidance…
A little known secret concerning life in the jungles of time and space, Caitlin, is that however far you reach, you will go farther. However great your dreams, they will be grander. And however much you love, you will be loved much more.
We call it the Law of Increasing Returns.
Love you much more,
Back in the day when I worked in a real office, a coworker told me about TUT Notes from the Universe. You can arrange to have “The Universe” email you a happy little note once a week (or maybe even a day!) on the Tut website. These notes are little reminders of your power, life’s magic, and how much you’re loved. They are pretty amazing and rather inspirational. Lately, when I am missing being a SAHM with Annabelle, I’ve been rereading some of my old notes. I think it really helps me get motivated to work hard, instill passion into my teaching lessons, and to be a great leader for my students.
How do you pump yourself up to make it through the week?
