A Storm Weathered

A quick update on how my meeting went today: it was about as good as could be expected.  Did I hear things I didn’t want to hear?  Yes.  Did I have to take a few blows to my ego and sensitivity level?  For sure.  However, I did maintain the positive thoughts prior to and throughout the meeting.  As the time approached for me to leave my classroom, I could feel my stomach begin to turn and the anxiety rose up into my heart.  I did the only thing I could do: I took out a pen and paper and began to write out my prayer.

This didn’t stop the negativity from happening, but it put me in a better mindset to endure it.

I’ve learned a lot of lessons from today; some I wish that I wouldn’t have had to learn from experience, but it has made me a better person, a more competent teacher, and brought me closer to God.
