Sometimes I forget to focus on what is right in my life. Instead, I get caught up in daily frustrations, with students who–for whatever reason–are not reaching their potential, with something I could have done differently, my failure to reach out to someone/expose myself to a scary situation or a myriad of other things.
It is in those moments that I try to look at the good and the frustrating and to be able to recognize what each offers to me. To learn from the frustrations, know which ones to just let go of, and to always come back to what is going well in my life. As I get older, and maybe this is one of the good things about getting older, I am able to not let all those frustrations and criticism bother me.
So I’m going to focus on what is right in my life and dazzle on!
