I am a teacher.
I spend a lot of time being busy.
I have to-do lists that read like War and Peace.
I surf the rolling waves of Twitter and Facebook and Blogs and Pinterest, ride the roller coaster of emotion that boards each morning as I send my struggling student off to his own school, and travel back and forth from my cozy zone to my comfort zone to my crazy zone multiple times a day.
But, do I spend enough time putting away all my things and thinking?
I like to live in my head, but do I do good things while I’m there?
I simmer and stew.
I need to do other things too.
I need to be less busy and more purposeful. I need to remember the purposes behind the things that keep me busy.
That’s why I’m back for this year’s Slice of Life Challenge. It reminds me that I am more than someone who is busy.
Happy March 1st, everyone!
