Today, I return to work after a week off for fall break. It was extremely busy. I’m already looking forward to winter break. My Thanksgiving will be busy too.
I have spoken a lot about the importance of using break to recharge. Sometimes, that can’t happen, especially when you are an adult. I spent my entire break making tough decisions and taking actions that will change the trajectory of my life. I know that sounds heavy, but it is the truth.
I spent most of my break at home away from people unless they were willing to come to me. The best way to make decision is to get some alone time. Although this wasn’t a relaxing break, it was a productive break.
The decisions I have made will make it possible for me to have more time with my family and friends in the future. I’m looking forward to that.
My husband and I are staying low key about those changes for now. You’ll just have to stay tuned.
To all those educators returning back from break, keep your heads up high. It’s time for round two!
