All grown up. What to be?
Summers are for reflection for me. The rest of the year I tend to be so busy that I don’t have a ton of time to think about “things” or reflect on what I’m doing with my life and whether it is what I should be doing with my life or not. I make all sorts of plans and read all kinds of self-improvement blogs and such and then the school year starts and I’m incapable of remembering my name let alone remembering what I am supposed to be doing to make myself a better person.
I love what I do. I love teaching. I even love coaching Speech and Debate most of the time. But, I also love to write and speak to people outside of my classroom. And I would love to actually make money doing those things (writing and speaking), but it is tough to figure out whether that is just a far-off dream that I am unwilling to commit to enough to be successful or whether it is that “call” that each of us has inside for what we are truly meant to do/be.
So, summer down time is here and my heart is able to wonder…what to be?
