I was talking with a friend recently about the class I am in. I was expressing my frustration and how I cannot wait till it is done. As we were talking about the class and what we felt would be a better way of doing certain things a light bulb went off in my head. What if this was happening to teach me a lesson? Maybe I am supposed to remember what it is like to feel this way so I can open myself up to my students and give them the opportunity I needed in this class? Sometimes I get irritated that something “bad” is happening to me but forget there is always a lesson to learn in every thing we go through. How many times when we were children did we say we didn’t want to be like a parent? I didn’t necessarily not want to be like my mom but because of what I went through I have done whatever I could to be there for my children. I want to be better.
Has anyone heard about a Maya Angelou’s Caged Bird Songs? I have pre-ordered it on iTunes!!! I love her and her work. When I first started this class the instructor asked us if we could be any super hero who would we would want to be and why. There was everything from Superman to Wonder Woman. I picked Maya. To me even when she made bad choices in her life, she still was amazing. I can’t even say they were bad choices, because they made her who she was and that was something I dream to be.
I woke up thanking God for my breath, my children, my husband, and being here. I watched the sun come out and my energy level went up. I have to take advantage of that so I am off to have a great day. I hope you do too 🙂
