“I Am” 30-Day Challenge #20

I am willing to listen. Sometimes, people talk to me for quite a long time, and I am willing to listen; other times when I need silence, I could stab myself in the eyeball. I want to help when I can, be a shoulder for a cry, share a laugh, or whatever the conversation brings. But today, I heard a conversation that never happened. I heard about hurt, confusion, loss, and the unspoken questions. I heard crying and laughter. Only thing I wonder is will I hear any of this out loud.

I am a day late. Yesterday’s schedule prevented me from posting. No, yesterday when I realized I had not posted, I was too tired to post. Yes, I had the intention, but it didn’t happen.

I am committed to making a positive change in my classroom. I refuse to let three students take the fun out of my teaching or out of my other students’ learning. Great teaching and learning will kill the negative energy. Majority rules and so do I!

I am limitless. I seek that which I don’t yet see. I believe that which I visualize. I am limitless and so are my life’s possibilities.

I am changed, and I thank God for that! Staying the same and being stuck can result from fear of change or unwillingness to step out of comfort zones. But the amazing part about change is that once it happens, the new comfort zone’s coziness is greater than any I’ve ever imagined.  I just have to remember that sometimes change hurts, but it’s only temporary; like getting a filling for a cavity. Once the numbness and the pain go away, I’m all smiles.

I am rested. I went to sleep before 9 p.m. on Friday and Saturday because I needed to rest. Sometimes I need more than 8 hours of sleep so I can be a better me. Restful sleep is a necessity that I don’t take for granted. I am rested and relaxed.

I am balanced. Sometimes, I fall into traps that take me far off center. If I watch too much news, the negativity wears me down. If I listen to too much chatter, it becomes noise in my soul. If I don’t take time to be silent, I miss what silence brings. In light of recent tragedies, racially motivated crimes, and the bombarding of sickness on social media, I center myself. I pray for my personal peace and the peace of others. And I am balanced.

I am happy, but I am also very tired from today’s field trip with my class. I am happy that the “missing” student was actually just on the bus ignoring us. I am happy that I didn’t have to call a parent to say their child was “missing.” I am happy that everyone returned safely from a trip I never want to take again. I am happy.

I am reflective. Reflecting is not 20-20 like hindsight. Taking time for reflection helps guide new directions. I’m not afraid to look back, but I don’t look for too long. What is done is over, what is over is done.

I am celebrating 52 years of life!! That’s a long time to live with life’s ups, downs, and everything in between. I’m thankful for the life I’ve lived and the beautiful promises that tomorrow brings. Happy birthday to me today, but happy new day every day that I wake with good health and total peace.
