New Attitude

I need a new attitude

To the work I do

It’s tiring and intense

It drains you to the core

Exhaustion seeps through every pore.

On a great day I love it

The victories make me roar

These big moments

So few and far between

I need to find the joy in simpler things 

Attitude adjusted

  1. Your words ring true for me. After 30+ years of teaching, I just couldn’t come to terms with all the (negative) changes (in administration and curriculum content and delivery, as well as students’ attitudes, etc.), so I took an early retirement. My husband followed suit 6 years later. It breaks my heart that teaching has become such a challenge; it used to be the most wonderful career! I hope you can find your way through these trying times.
