Keep Me Busy
I love the years/ages when kids are excited to go to school. The younger ones get up every day pumped to get to school. They can’t wait for the bus. Can’t wait to get there. It’s not WORK for them. It’s exciting. They get to do things and learn things. Kids understand on a subconscious level that it’s better to be active and have things to do, than to not. If they had to stay home all day, what would they do?
These days, I tend to never have a second to sit down and do nothing. But I should count my blessings! I’ve got things to do!
Many times I have bemoaned the fact that I’m so busy. I think – “I’d be so much happier if I had a lazy day to do just nothing. I’ll lay around all day.” But if I think back on some days in the past where I actually DID do nothing all day, I think I felt even lousier at the end of those days than any other. I wasn’t satisfied. I just felt kind of numb. I don’t want to be numb.
I want to be energized with life and challenges. I think I know how the kids feel. I WANT to go to school today. If I’m not teaching, or learning, or challenging myself or others I’m just going to be numb. And that’s no FUN!
