HELP! I need somebody.

This is not a desperate cry for help. This is a blog full of deep thinking. Walk with me as we discuss how we cry for HELP.

Often when one feels overwhelmed we turn inwards. We look for what WE can do and what WE need to change. For example, and as I previously stated, I am a teacher with three additional side jobs, completing graduate classes, as well as a passionate yogi. When the woes of teaching demands get me down and I have hit my cap, I hear the dreaded words “how can I help?”.

It is that we do not want help? No. It is that the weight on our shoulders often feels that it must be carried alone.

It is okay to feel overwhelmed at times. It is okay to have days or weeks where everything hits at once. It is okay to not be okay, but it is not okay for someone else to tell you how you “should” be handling it.

We are all entitled to our emotions and healthy coping strategies. If no one else has ever told you that, or you are used to hearing how you need to do more “Self care” then read up about how the corporate world expect “hobbies” to cure our metal and physical abuse.

Seasons

Often, it takes a season of transition to remind us of our goals. As a school teacher, the last day of school and the first day are often the hardest moments for reflection. As I sit in my classroom for the final time this year, I am reminded of all that I hoped to achieve over the past 180 school days.

Fertility – Pre Work Up

So you have decided to make the leap. You have accepted that intervention in necessary. Isn’t acceptance the first step? Well, I am with you and currently traveling through the many tasks and todo lists that make up the “work up”. Below is my story and experience.

How Do You Define Success

So when I get the above question, from now I am saying that Success cannot be defined. We use the word success as if its a trophy. One that is always out of reach. We pin this word to other people hoping we could one day compare. Instead of all the synonyms like accomplishment of achievement, I plan to reframe this word as “content”. If we are happy or even content with our progress and our achievements, then we are successful.
