I’ve been a little MIA lately.
I guess you could say I’ve been a little uninspired.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve sat in front of my computer screen
and waited for words to come.
Or sometimes they’d arrive, only for me to quickly erase them and log out.
I thrive on positivity and I don’t do well with negativity.
When surrounded by grumpiness, it starts to take over me.
And the last thing I wanted to do was taint my own blog with negative ideas.
But I’m back! And with such a great reason
Today I am thankful for inspiration.
Today I saw “Won’t Back Down” with Maggie Gyllenhaal .
Teaching was meant for me.
In college, I tried to steer away from it.
My family is full of teachers, and I was determined to be my own person. Do my own thing.
But it’s something I’m good at, something I love.
And I found myself realizing that wasn’t something I could deny any longer.
After watching that movie, though sometimes the future of education seems like a mess,
I felt proud. I felt inspired.
And I’m thankful for that.
Because even on the toughest days, its that feeling that keeps me going.
