Thoughts for the Road

Remember Why You're Here?

I would encourage each of you to think about why you're here. You could have chosen thousands of other things to do with your life, but you didn't. You could make far more money by doing other things, but you don't. You choose to come spend your days with teenagers who have all kinds of needs. Teaching is a selfless profession. You make the choice everyday to come and impact the lives of kids, and it's meaningful. I know sometimes in all the "business" of education we can forget that it takes a gift to do what you do. Not everyone can do what you do everyday, so thank you for the efforts you are making. Keep using your giftings.

Quotes to think about:

The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. –Amelia Earhart

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover. –Mark Twain

Life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. –Charles Swindoll
