Keeping it Real...
Welcome! No matter how you found this, God knew you'd be here today. May you absorb the message He has for you. In 2011 I shared through my writing, today I've learned there is more to me than just writing. I have the energy and passion to share with others. Sometimes through Facebook live and others with my blog and most importantly, I've learned my passion to cook and bake is a vessel to share my writing and live presentations, while glorifying God in the process. I just needed to let go, and follow His lead.
For years I've spent a few weeks of my summer working Summer School BUT this year I took the summer off in order to relax, refresh, and recharge! Covid (I know, you are sick of this word and pandemic yet its toll is ongoing, so let's name it) has taken lives, freedoms, and drained energies of hard working Americans like yourself.
EVERYONE is effected by this on some level, yours is different than mine and possibly even those you live with but one thing is the same - we need to take time to remember and focus on ALL THE BLESSINGS in our lives, THE LESSONS LEARNED, and how you HAVE GROWN individually and as a unit.
Your unit might be family, work, book club, church, walking/running club, daycare, and many I'd never understand or know BUT you have faced great trials since arch 2020 and moving forward I challenge you to regain control, composure, and focus on the blessings you have in your life today. Focus on the loved ones standing alongside you here, and 100 miles away. Focus on how you learned to relax and take time. Focus on how you are spending your time.
Covid reminded me to slow down and spend time with those I love. As I watch my friends, coworkers, and families returning to their life on the road between multiple events and functions...I'm caught between joy and sadness. There is joy because the normalcy is returning yet sadness because the family bonds and relationships are slowly being stretched again.
This is why I refrained from working summer school. I realized I was at burnout and when you are at that point, you are no good to anyone! I want to remember what it felt like to have the time and ability to make memories with those I care about the most.
This summer is about renewal, strengthening, and growing as a person - as Lisa. I was getting lost in the routine and drained by the continuing protocols keeping us from teaching in the open, engaging, and welcoming environment. Good news, our furniture was returned to our building and teachers will be able to create this again for the Fall 2022.
When I return on September 1st, I will be in the best mental, physical, and spiritual place I can be - ready to give 110% to the kiddos I'm blessed to work with.
Have you taken time this summer to recharge, refresh & return...
