Where You Stand
Where are you standing? As we near the completion of this busy 5-month stretch of every school year, are you even still standing? Are you exhausted? Many of us have faced difficult challenges this fall and those challenges threaten to knock us our feet or to make us resentful.
Even if we're not exhausted, we can tend to gravitate toward the noise. The squeaky wheel gets the grease. When we do this, we miss the whispers and can sometimes miss the essential in lieu of the compelling.
I have always found the Christmas break to be a time to regroup. I usually have a few books I want to tackle (this year's list includes "The Energy Bus," How Pope Francis Leads," and "Teacher Man"), and I take the time to change my perspective. To that end, I will be taking a break from the weekly newsletters until January. I plan to unplug for a few weeks.
I'll be changing my place in hopes that I can hear the whispers.
