I want that turquoise quatrefoil because it matches my blog!!!!
I HAD to buy this!!!! Isn't it just a notebook you ask? No....
Ok, now for the more mental part. No I'm not crazy (yet lol). But I've always been honest with you all and this is a part of my life. And it's what made me start my blog. I always try to be upbeat on here, but my life isn't always upbeat. I get sad. Especially this time of year when my friends are getting ready for school and I'm packing my sub bag.
In front of me checking out was a teacher. Behind me checking out was a teacher. One from each of my school districts. Both asked if I was working full time. I always feel a little weird because when I say no, I automatically start thinking about what they're thinking. Like , "She's not good enough I guess" and other stuff. I know it's silly because I know I'm good enough. I do, but those thoughts still go through my head that they are judging me. Though one teacher wanted my card and she said, "So I can request you every time I'm gone."
Now I could sit here and cry (maybe I did for a minute). But what good would that do? It doesn't solve anything and besides, my mascara would run! I feel that I was led to start a blog for a reason. To help other subs and teachers out there. To help teachers across the world. I mean, some of my stuff that I create is being used across the world? How could I be sad about that? If I was working full time, I don't know how much time I'd have to create products. Less than normal, that's for sure.
And when I get comments from other subs and teachers that I've helped them, I know I'm doing the right thing. The feedback like these two make it worth it and put a smile on my face.
How could this not make me smile?!?! P.S.... if you use one of my items in your class, I would LOVE to see pics of it in action! Let me know! And maybe if I put it on my blog, you'll get something *hint hint*
Or this feedback?
The kids loved it...yay!
I'm not looking for sympathy, I just felt like that I was meant to share it. Maybe someone was needing to hear that they are not alone or that it will be ok. I know when the time is right, it will happen. I know that God has something in store and that I just have to wait (patiently). I'll leave you with this quote (feel free to grab the pic).
