Life in September: Day Four

Share something that scares you.

Well, first off, I’m pretty afraid what life path this child will be taking.

No, he’s not in my class and no, I didn’t put him up to it!

Moving on.

Not many things scare me. Plenty of things make me nervous and worried, but scared is not a word that gets thrown around. A few years ago I had a student that would routinely get in trouble for the same things. While he was being corrected or sent to time out he would scream This is not how I wanted my day to go!!! I would have to bite my tongue before hollering back Yeah, me too buddy.

I hadn’t thought about that until today. Being faced with the question What scares me?

This is not how I wanted my life to go.

My current life situation is not what I planned, but I know it’s where I’m supposed to be. I can have peace knowing that my life can still mean something regardless of how I feel about my circumstances.

Wow, thanks for sharing that. I think it's something that I've been needing to hear for a long time. I'm kind of in a similar situation - and I've been so angry because all of my plans have fallen through. But reading your post just made something click in my head.

So again, thank you so much!
