Recharging is something I feel I need to do a lot of. As a second year teacher, I am still pouring endless hours into making sure my students are receiving the best education possible. While I am in no way, shape, or form the teacher that will change the world yet, the work I do today will help me achieve this tomorrow.
When I think of recharging, I think of an invisible reset button. I may have had a terrible day, or even a great but tiring day, and the only thing I need is a second to reset, reflect, and start over. I get a mini-charge in my thirty minute commute home from work at the end of the day, and exert a little of that charge at the gym, and exert more of the charge when I get home to grade and plan for the next few days. It allows me to stay positive and rejuvenated.
I wanted to be really philosophical and deep here, but all I can think of at 11:08pm on a Saturday after watching Iowa beat Iowa state is how these past three weekends have been me just recharging. And I’m not even going to lie to you, all I have done is watch Criminal Minds, watch part of the game, and take my grandmother to church. To be quite honest, I’m so tired that I’m not even sure any of this is making sense; I just wanted to write.
The need to recharge is very real, and using the long weekend last week- #nolaborday – wa really helpful. I think it’s beneficial for everyone to remember that just because we are work horses doesn’t mean that we don’t run out of juice from time to time. Even the energizer bunny takes a break, despite what the commercials advertise. Take the time to recharge, reflect, and reset this weekend.
Happy Sunday, everyone. I’ll be recharging at Summerset winery listening to some live music and grading papers. I bid you adieu.
