Might be the first LLG post in 2019. Might not be. I think it’d do me good to start again.
Learned that it takes energy to focus on myself; to be selfish. Trying not to be reactive takes energy and intentional focus.
I also learned that I want to serve youth. Watching the Japanese show 7 rules about one teacher made me think of why I pursued my career in higher education. It’s too bad the higher ed system failed me, but I’m hoping to find a way to get myself back into serving youth one way or another.
Trying to be honest with yourself is so much harder than being honest with someone else. Someone asked me what I wanted from them. Honestly, I’m at a loss for words. It’s not even about them anymore. I’m having a hard time answering what I want, truly. It’s something I’m going to have to really think through.
Gratitude goes to documentaries, educators, #truestories, writers, and journaling.
