Hope is All We Have

Hope is All We Have

Disappointment over time creates limits on what we believe we can create in our lives.  To compound the situation, social media depictions of others’ fortunes can lead to a focus on lack.  What is not happening for you but is happening for others directs your attention to what is not there. Staying in that space only generates more of what you don’t want (lack). Rather, focusing on what you have...

Not All Shades of Gray Contain Silver Linings

Toxic positivity serves no purpose.  Yet, many people hide in the rafters to bolster their need for constant optimism.  While the shadows of life assist with growth and expansion, being in the dusk creates an uncomfortable existence.  Hence, you sacrifice your comfort level if you sojourn in the dark space of your life although this space creates the most evolution.  To avoid the awkwardness,...

How The Words Fall Upon Someone

How The Words Fall Upon Someone

As honesty falls from you lips, the sentiment may not be welcomed.  For not everyone has the capacity to hear or to acknowledge the others’ frankness or insight.  Discernment concerning who to speak with candor to and how to convey these messages to them arrives as a delicate walk on a tightrope. The balance of compassion with integrity while being forthright emerges on this slippery slope.  But...

A Hidden, Broken Heart

Beneath the t-shirts that declare, “I was Born to Teach” and indicate the bold pride teachers feel about their vocation lies a hidden, broken heart.  It is not something teachers advertise as readily as the apples with smiley faces that decorate their wardrobe.  But, it's there.     Heavy Hearts   Much like pieces of old, sullied confetti, hearts of educators shatter into pieces...

The Gritty Reality of Public Education

Beneath the stare away from the social media lens lies a profound sadness that envelops the majority of educators in K-12 schools. As I read their posts online, sans serif fonts exhale their hopelessness onto me, temporarily blinded me with the gritty reality of public education that I can never forget.     A Flickering Flame Within   With each post I encounter, I tightly clutch...

Acknowledge The Dark

Acknowledge The Dark

The past is a lighthouse to guide your journey not a port to dock your ship.  Thus, if we allow the past to illuminate areas of growth, we honor our evolution as souls.  Alas, when you anchor in the past rather than reflecting, your ascension stagnates.  Your pathway to self-love through self-forgiveness can only unfold as you acknowledge the dark while seeking out the light.    ...
