I don't think it was because I made the wrong choice. I just wasn't prepared enough in the transition in a variety of areas, mostly in my heart. I thought I was, but I cried everyday I came home for the first month.
I could easily make this post all about me, but it is not going to be. I am going to a conference with a theme: Stronger Together, so this is about seven educators who rallied around me at a point where I wanted to run with scissors and let me cry, vent and spoke life back into me and I put the scissors down.
This is a thank you.
I wanted to thank my sisterhood of friends who listened to me and set my feet higher on a ground and gave me a safe place to fall apart at the same time. Thank you Fran, Krisanne, Jenny and Sandy. Thank you for being pillars of educators in my life and for speaking not just encouragement into my life, but truth as well.
We are stronger together. I love you.
