How is it that we must hold what we love tight to us, against our very bones, knowing we must also, when the time comes, let it go?
Educating isn’t only about teaching what the curriculum says, it’s about learning from your students, implementing what they need/want to learn…to personalize teachings. That’s the way curriculum is more effective.It also requires patience
Being tender and open is beautiful. As a woman, I feel continually shhh’ed. Too sensitive. Too mushy. Too wishy washy. Blah blah. Don’t let someone steal your tenderness. Don’t allow the coldness and fear of others to tarnish your perfectly vulnerable beating heart. Nothing is more powerful than allowing yourself to truly be affected by things. Whether it’s a song, a stranger, a mountain, a rain drop, a tea kettle, an article, a sentence, a footstep, feel it all – look around you. All of this is for you. Take it and have gratitude. Give it and feel love.
