Steady moving along… through the raging storm.
My trip to Minneapolis for the NAEA conference has been halted. BCPS has restricted all out of state school field trips and work related PD for teachers due to the coronavirus. This means I can not attend the conference. I am beyond bummed.
I look forward to this conference every year; Seeing old friends and making new friends… learning new things to bring back to my classroom and feeling invigorated with a new spark to share my passion of art… and traveling to new cities, spending time there learning about their history and visiting their museums.
My heart is a little broken today, I’m not gonna lie. When I got the message last night from our Superintendent I wasn’t surprised, but it didn’t really hit me until this morning. Things have reached my reality… and are shifting around me.
I have so many thoughts on these shifts. I could go on and on about what I think and how weird this all is… and part of me wants to, but also I do not want to debate or discuss what it could be or what should be. Neither of those things is proactive from the perspective that most of the time we allow ourselves to get carried away in those thoughts and lose sight of our own power.
So the most important thought I want to share is…
Keep your vibration up, and your self centered.
Use this time and energy to focus in on what you truly want in your life, and what you hold on to that no longer serves you. Use this time to detox and break free from the attachments you’ve made that are only holding you back. Spend your alone time, breathing deeply in and out. Teach your children the importance of sacred time, and self care. We are well when we are balanced in our ways. Spend time with mother earth, letting nature heal you and bring you back to center.
Keep moving forward… Steady now… there is something great coming. This is the calm before the storm, which will eventually produce the largest rainbow you’ve ever seen. <3
