It’s a truly magical time of the year.
I’m not just saying that because it’s coming up to my birthday although obviously you should get thinking of what to buy me. Personally I’d go with gin, it’s always a strong choice.
But truly, it is magical. I’m seeing people get their dream training contracts, make plans and focus for the end of the school year, get clear on what they want from the remaining 6 months of the year.
And then there’s nature. I’m writing this late at night after taking Jasper out for his end of the evening walk. It’s a beautiful temperature outside, warm but not too warm. On our walk this evening we didn’t just see a fox, we saw a whole family of them.
This has to be one of the questions I have been asked most over the course of my work in Searching for Serenity, but it's a question I used to ask myself a lot as well.
I had been told that I was resilient. It wasn't something I ever really thought about, it was just something I did.
I pulled the results out of the bag on no sleep, kept going even when things got tough, didn't clue people in on just how bad things were behind the scenes.
A few days ago I was on a call with one of my favourite ladies S. S has found her job, working as a teacher, becoming overloaded with more and more admin, responsibilities and stress. The time she spends teaching seems to pale in comparison to the ‘extras’ that come with the job.
Sounds familiar, right?
