You will never feel truly satisfied by work until you are satisfied by life.
Another wonderful Mother’s Day…..two beautiful children and a fabulous husband……
My mum came up today for lunch and we sat outside in the sunshine….a lovely and relaxed day. Just what I needed to kick start my final week at school.
I cannot believe there is only one week left before Easter. Where has the time flown by? The school year has somehow crept by without us realising it. SATS are only weeks away and talk of summer is already lingering on people’s lips. But wait….time please pause for a while, as there is still so much to do!
How is it possible to get done all of the things that you have envisioned for the year? There are so many things to do but so little time….and time has a way of slipping silently and quickly away.
So, there are lots of things to accomplish this week, things to complete and things to prepare for the next term when we return – again to be prepared so we can jump into it at 100 miles per hour. The thing I love most about my job is that there is always something to do, boredom doesn’t have a moment to even creep its way in. We put our all into our roles and work in our little bubbles all day long floating and rolling around from here to there-it doesn’t burst usually until we finally lay in the bed and put our feet up….even then our minds are a whirlwind of the days’ events – we never really rest…always thinking about lesson plans, assemblies, parent meetings or whatever else waits for the week ahead.
But, it is when you think of these things with excitement and fervour that you know you absolutely love your job.
But, no matter how much passion you have for your profession, you need to find time for a pause and a time for reflection. Times for your family to have your full attention. It is only maintaining this balance that allows you to continue to fly through your life at such a roaring pace. Without this balance you will eventually run out of steam.
How will you find your balance?
