Life truly is all about connections.
Who are you connecting with? I’m not talking about DATING. I’m talking about networking, learning from…connecting.
I had a great weekend of connecting with some great student council friends. I was able to meet some new faces and share some great ideas. That truly is what teaching or advising is all about. It’s about learning TOGETHER.
I know I say this a lot. I don’t get tired of saying it though. I LOVE MY JOB. I love my coworkers, the way our leader supports us, how we are able and encouraged to network with others and I love my students. I am truly happy about working all weekend at this conference I just came back from AND I’M truly happy I GET to get up in the morning and go work at the best high school in Texas!
Thank You Lord for connections. Thank You Lord for my student council friends. You know I know YOU put those people in my life. THANK YOU! Thank You Lord for allowing this weekend to be amazing. AMEN!
A day or two of doing nothing, having no agenda and hanging out with people who make you happy is something we should all do. Taking time for yourself is so very important.
Do you ever have a day, week or month where you’ve had one thing after another? Stresses, headaches, meetings, practices, games, …and the list goes on.
This week, for me, it was Homecoming Week at school which involved a lot of planning. It was a bit stressful and crazy. When the game actually started last night, I was so ready to just sit down and stay down. Did I? Naw. I still had an alumni and t-shirt table to make sure people were working.
BUT what I did get to do today is drive out to a lake house that my sweet friend invited me to for a girls’ weekend retreat. I had an awesome massage, got to help paint some nails, did a picture frame art project, had fabulous dinner at the country club, sat around and ate the best pie I have ever eaten in my life, laughed and just relaxed. It was great!!!
No agendas. No plans. No need to do anything important or non-important. Just let whatever happen. It’s so important to take time out to renew yourself. Ladies especially, I believe it’s important to be with other fun women who believe God gave us each other as gifts! CUZ HE DID! Refresh your attitude, restore your mind. REBOOT! Just take time for YOURSELF.
It’s so important!
