I’m excited to be featured over at iBelieve.com today, attempting a more positive school year…
I don’t know about you, but back-to-school is a lot more hectic as an adult than I remember it as a kid. Add that to my “Ways Being An Adult is Less Fun Than I Thought it Would Be” list.
Gone is the excitement, anticipation, and joy, all to be replaced with stress, overwhelm, frustration, and worry. There’s a million things to do, a million dollars to spend, a million children to tend to, and about five minutes to do all of it.
Getting everyone up and ready is a daily battle. Then there are the assignments, the activities, the class participation, after school activities, and everything in between. I might need a gallon of coffee daily just to get through September.
But, in the midst of our ramping up for the school year to come, I’m trying to slow down. I’m centering myself and creating a regular practice of finding peace in the midst of the crazy.
