I needed this day to myself. It's only been about 6 days of school and I already need time for me. I took this day to relax, relate, and release, and to rest this pounding head. Stress is never good for anyone. In fact, it can wreak havoc on the immune system. Before I get on the receiving end of something that damaging, I'd rather chill and regroup.
One thing I've realized over the years is that if you are drifting further and further away from the things that make you happy, that make you feel good while doing them, that you will become more and more dissatisfied with life over time.
I am happiest when I'm writing and reading or putting something together -- you know being creative. But, when I'm off being a tyrant, dealing with interesting behaviors and personalities, dealing with mounds of paperwork and other missteps of the pub ed school system, it's enough to drive you wild and off course.
But, it's going to be okay.
I am going to take things one day at a time. Starting right here, right now.
