2 years ago, I was grieving the loss of my parents. I had lost the spark and fire for teaching that I always prided myself in. I was so focused on my kids' and husband's needs that my light was dimming. Something had to change so I started making myself a priority again.
I knew I was close to complete burn out and breakdown.
So, I quit my job and took my 3 year old out of daycare so we could spend more time together. I started dreaming again. I started putting hopes into tangible goals and taking baby steps towards meeting them.
Today, I can honestly say that I am so passionate about what I am doing. I truly feel like I've lit the fire again and purpose is streaming through me. I've found some simple strategies and routines to keep me on track.
