Well I've been quiet lately. More quiet than usual. Lots of thoughts have been floating around my mind trying to find a good way out. So today I came across a quote that spoke to me and inspired me.
All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another. ~Anatole France
Over the past weeks as I transition from one once beloved job to my new highly anticipated position in a public school classroom I have been experiencing exactly what Anatole France so beautifully stated above. I feel like I am grieving for the dreams I had of growing into a leadership role in my previous job. I am also dealing with an increasing loss of respect for an individual whom I've looked up to for a very long time. This is a loss that is difficult to bear and definitely leaves me with a level of melancholy. I will be doing my best to let things go and be open to beginning my new life.
