I love me…

I don’t know about you, but the stress and anxiety I have experienced since March have been monumental.  Too often we can be hardest on ourselves.  

This week I was listening to the podcast, Let’s Talk Soon, and Tricia Williford Lott said, “You can either look healthy or be healthy.”  She continued by explaining you can work hard to look or appear healthy when you actually are covering up a lot of mess in your life.  On the flip side, you can be healthy, which requires vulnerability and acknowledgment that others can see you aren’t perfect and that you are working to improve.  

This message resonated with me as we all have been thrust into a new world that exposes our fears and anxieties.  Let’s take a moment to acknowledge we are trying our best and that is okay to not be perfect all of the time.  Each day we show up to school, regardless of our role and in spite of our imperfections, we are striving to meet the needs of our students and colleagues.  I would welcome you to take it easy on yourself and just breathe.  We are in this together!

One thought on “I love me…

  1. I’m glad you’re doing this. When I read your email about this yesterday, I made a mental note to talk to you about blogging when things settle down. You’re reflective and articulate in writing, and I think this will help you better organize ideas and tie them together.
