Tomorrow I begin year 14 working in education, and...I just don't know. I typically form an opinion on just about everything, but when it comes to the start of this school year I just don't know what to think. 2020 has been so polarizing in nearly all aspects of life.
So many questions and things on my mind...
TBH, most of these things I'm pretty embarrassed to share because they're a joke compared to what millions of other people are facing.
Who should have to decide? I thought by taking time to reflect and share my thoughts here that it'd give me some kind of clarity, or maybe even pump myself up before I walk in to a district building building in the morning - masked of course. There will be so much to do, work that is important and meaningful. But, I don't think I can say I'm excited. My biggest fear is going back to work, being around others, and coming home to make the people I love sick. Regardless. I'll still give my best and even go above and beyond to make an impact in my field.
For now I cling to Matthew 6:34...
Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
P.S. I'm obviously out of practice sharing my thoughts, and in fact, it's been nearly a year since my last official blog. I will do better because when things do get back to normal, I'll be able to look back and see how far I've come.
