There gets to be a lot of busyness in our day to day world.  In the education world we go from 0 to 100 just like that when the school bell rings at the start of the year.  It is easy to get caught up in that busyness and we can forget our why and our purpose. 

Don’t let the pace of what you do over shadow why you do it. 

Don’t let the frustrations over take the moments that bring you joy.

Don’t let the weight of responsibility cancel out all of the training and preparation you have done. 

Remember your why. 

Remember your purpose. 

Remember why you started. 

Move forward from there. 

Let me know how I can help you.
