Never allow waiting to become a habit. Live your dreams and take risks. Life is happening now.Paulo Coehlo
For many years, I sat around waiting for something to happen in order to start living out my dreams; my next birthday, the new month, the new year, when I get a job, when the kids are older, when I have a house, when I have more money, the next, when I ….. But then in 2014, I chose not to wait anymore. I chose not to sit around and wait realizing that life was passing me by. My youngest child was 5 and about to start Kindergarten, my role as a mom was about to change forever. I went back to school to become a teacher’s assistant and later stretched my goal to live out my lifelong dream of becoming a teacher. Here, my self confidence grew as I accepted a job as a middle school Science & Social Studies teacher before I graduated from the ISU Education program in 2019.
Over the last year, I have been living my life as a middle school teacher and celebrated the completion of my first year of teaching this last week – becoming a #stjdreamcatcher. So what do I do next?
I continue to grow as a wife, mom, and teacher – as well as begin a new goal. This one is a bigger risk. It is one that I have started and stopped, started and stopped, started and stopped for as long as I can remember. I am to pursue my life as a writer and speaker. I want to share my passion for being a wife, mom, and teacher with others.
