Everyone has a story and you can catch up on more slices for the SOLSC at
Two Writing Teachers.
Yesterday I had a conversation with someone about my week (which had its ups and downs). I recalled how on Wednesday, I was in such a cranky mood (putting it mildly) that I couldn’t remember to breath or focus on the positive.
Through the discussion, I became aware how easy it is to get caught up in negative talk be it work or politics. Lately, I get wound up over what I have little or no control over. I want to steer conversations away from the gerbil wheel of negativity.
I am an introvert and I know that at the end of the school day, my energy is spent. One thing I’ve been doing is to put my phone on “Airplane” mode so that the drive home is uninterrupted (I have a love/hate relationship with Bluetooth in the car). As I make my way home, I listen to audio books.
I don’t want to disengage in Facebook but there are days that the politics is too much.
Spring is on its way along with longer days. Outside is where I want to be without my phone.
