This Is Hard

Some days are hard. I know that comes with the territory.

This week was my first full completely hard and tiring week. Herding children, dealing with young person attitudes, running out of ideas, feeling bored and stuck, rehashing the same ole behavioral problems, getting a lot of bad news about renovations, add in personal life struggles…

This is really tough work. I’m still working to remind myself that there will always be something and to not overreact to things.

The journey is the destination as Loren, a parent and board member, has said.

Hopefully, a year from now this present struggle will be a small matter and I’ll be wiser from it.

    I feel your pain Anthony. I’m still trying to find a good balance in my Spawn group with the older and younger students and the way they relate to one another. I am also trying to find balance between over and under facilitating, as I try to allow space for the older students to be leaders. My husband always reminds me not to let the perfect be the enemy of the good, and I think most days we’re doing pretty good. Hope you feel a better flow this week. 🙂
