Are you nobody, too?
Then there’s a pair of us — don’t tell!
They’d banish us; you know! How dreary to be somebody!
How public like a frog
To tell one’s name the livelong day
To an admiring bog!
I have updated my resume and I have sent some emails. I will be going back to teaching in August. What have I done with my time off? Not much actually and I realize that’s okay. People often think; If I Had the Time I Would _____. Well maybe it does happen to some people. Maybe they go on a whirlwind tour of eating, and praying, and loving, and then write a bestselling novel. Or maybe like me, some people just get a chance to pause, and breathe, and look around. And have time for the second cup of coffee in the morning.
I am better than I was at this time last year. I understand how much I still want to be a good teacher and how I can go back and be a good teacher while also be a good mom and wife too.
Maybe you don’t write the next Great American Novel. Maybe your blog doesn’t suddenly become the moneymaking machine that all the other blogs promise it can be. But maybe you find yourself in all the craziness and sadness and understand that we are all on this spinning rock in the universe together trying to figure it out. Everyday.
