I turned 43 today. As I sit here and reflect on this day, I feel very fortunate to be alive and writing this post, since I skipped last year. I haven’t been posting on here as of late, but with the way social media has been heading, now seems to be a good time to once again curate my own space on the world wide web.
Over the past year, I’ve started a new career as a middle school social studies teacher. It certainly wasn’t where I thought I would be, but after I found myself without a job during this pandemic, the nudging of some close people in my life led to that door opening. It’s been difficult to teach in this particular environment, but I must say that I am enjoying what I am doing, and have seen this more of a calling as of late.
Life has been pretty hectic at the moment. I’ve been dealing with some personal issues and some health issues, and they seem to interconnect with one another. It’s been difficult to plan in this environment, but lately I’ve been trying to think more about long-term goals rather than short-term gratification. One think I hope to do is to turn this space into a hub for projects I want to achieve over the next year or two.
So here’s to mending broken relationships, dreaming new dreams, daring to try something new, not being afraid to fail, and seeing where God leads from here.
