Lessons I am learning...

You know one of my goals for this year is to be more intentional, I also have stated that I really have a desire to train others in my profession. I am growing and changing in my teaching and I really have found something that I believe in when it comes to the teaching of reading and writing. I am not sure how all of this plays out for me, I am sure that I will find the answer in this coming year.
This week though I was struck with a blow that stung but after pondering the situation I began to realize that my time will come. This week the blow came not from negative words but, just a sentiment that made me realize that others are just not ready, they are not there yet, and that is something that I must learn. Something I am learning...

I guess that I am learning that my vision is not necessary the vision of others. The optimist in me had her ballon deflated, however, it doesn't mean that it lost all of its air. I still need to move forward with MY vision and if others want to go along for the ride I will enjoy the company. I must only do what I can.

These are the lessons that I am learning...

Wow! Powerful thoughts for a Monday! I too understand the idea of a vision. Just having a vision, I think is a powerful example for other people. I have soo missed reading your thoughts and I am so glad to be enjoying your post today! happy monday.

Sarah-
You are so far ahead of your years. Your vision is simply for others to have the same joy in life as you do. However, we must remember the big word: CHOICE. Think how God must feel about all of us. Yet, He gives us choice. Your job is to continue to keep on doing what you are doing and show that wonderful joy you have. Others will want it,too. Just not as soon as you and I would like!
