Spring Break at the Ashram
I am a divine being of light, and I am peaceful, protected and secure.
I am radiant, beautiful and strong and enjoy a healthy and passionate life.
I am positively empowered and successful in all my ventures.
Love is the answer to everything in life, and I give and receive love effortlessly and unconditionally.
My thoughts are positive, and I always express myself truthfully and clearly.
I am tuned into the divine universal wisdom and always understand the true meaning of life situations.
I am complete and one with the divine energy.
Something that I struggle to remember with all the chaos in teaching is that I am a whole and complete person outside of my job. I am not my job. I am not the emotions I feel. I am not ineffective as a person because of a score I am assigned based on an observation of one lesson. I am whole, complete, and worthy of joy.
I signed up for a yoga retreat for spring break so I could recharge. Driving three hours out to the retreat, I was surrounded by stunning fields, mountains, and new spring greens. I arrived to find myself in a serene world of yoga, vegetarian meals, and meditation.
However after 24 hours of serenity - I realized something. I didn't need a yoga retreat to remind me of who I am; the powerful, energetic, soul that is inside of me. So in a matter of 5 minutes, I packed my bags and got back on the road.
Yes, being in education right now is hard. Its challenging, draining, and rewarding all at the same time. However, I love being an educator. I love creating experiences for students in my second grade class, and my undergraduate class. I get to do what I love, and I get to spend my career exploring different aspects of the educational field. HOW COOL.
Refreshed and recharged - let's finish the year strong.
