It’s been a while since I’ve written, and there’s a lot of reasons for that: including returning to teaching and having a baby. ♥
I’ve really been examining what that means for my writing and if I’m going to continue to pursue blogging and such. I think this: I am going to keep writing, but I’m going to return to my original form – writing when my heart if full and I need to share. I tried to make this blog and my posts into a more serious pursuit, and while I enjoyed that, I think I’ve come to a place where that just isn’t necessary for me anymore.
In my return to teaching, I’ve returned to the love I once had for students and the material I get to teach. I think in coming to my new, wonderful school, I’ve been reinvigorated. I thought that teaching was not for me but it turns out that teaching is still as much for me now as it was when I was back in college getting excited about having my own classroom someday. I’m so optimistic about my kids and my classroom… It feels like a wholly different career than the one I felt trapped in two years ago.
I guess what I’m saying here is that I am going to keep writing, but this time, at my own comfortable pace and about whatever is on my heart. For those of who you have followed my journey to get to this place, thank you for your prayers and support.
I’m in a great place right now and I’m so grateful for God’s (and my husband’s) patience with me. I’m so grateful for God’s continued guidance, even when I didn’t realize that my journey would bring me right back into the classroom, but healthier, happier, and more fulfilled. Anyway, this is just a quick update to say I’m going to make a purposeful return to writing, just at my own pace.
I love you all. 🙂
