One year ago I wrote my first post: If teaching meant only to teach, things would be so much easier.
I started writing in an effort to clear my mind, find myself again, reach out to communities of teachers, musicians and parents. I wasn’t very content with where my professional life was headed. It is that time when you know you’ve done everything in your power to adjust and you realise you’re the only one trying and a bigger step is in order to make the change that you want.
Because it is true. You can’t change people, you can’t change entire institutions, you can change yourself. And you do that, up to a point where the change could mean changing your priorities, your principles, your vision and even your character.
So I started to remind myself who I am and what I do best. What are my strengths and my weaknesses. What is it that I want and clearly define what I don’t want.
And this is how I landed the best job I could wish for, working with people that love me, trust me and appreciate me; people that I love, respect and honour. A work that helps me grow as a teacher and as a musician more that I would’ve expected.
Thank you all for connecting with me, for your insights, for your friendship and kindness. I’ve received so much encouragement and even confirmation here. I get inspired by your lives and your stories, I get to laugh a lot and I’m learning from each of you. This is a sweet, sweet community!
Have a great week! ❤
