Mondays are hard for most, but uniquely challening to teachers is having to come to work on a Monday and right away deal with people-- adult colleagues, children and possibly parents. You never know what or who is waiting for you outside your classroom at 8 in the morning. Plus, you have to teach mostly sleepy, and sometimes grumpy children.
My tactic: wear something especially teacherly, eat your breakfast, and don't resist.
For me today that looks like: my favorite mustard pencil skirt; navy high-neck blouse; baby pink cardigan; navy tights; and feet-friendly, bronze flats. I actually sat down to eat my oatmeal with frozen, extra-ripe banana and cinnamon mixed in. Lastly, my affirmations for today thanks to watching Oprah's Life Class all day yesterday, revolve around acceptance and love.
I have all the grace I need for today.
Happy Monday to all.
