Let it Go

ふうせん_(4687625012).jpg

I’ve always appreciated the fact that when one door closes, another one opens. Last week, I realized that some of things that were on my plate needed to be removed. I had been holding onto those for far too long when those things no longer brought me joy. I mainly kept those things out of obligation because I felt that if I didn’t do it, then who else would? However, I’ve come to the realization that I don’t need to keep banging my head against the wall–that there was a world out there in which my efforts would produce more joy and have a greater impact in the long run.

Door closed.

The Turnaround Leadership class that I’m taking this semester has opened my eyes to how I view myself as a leader. I have been learning about the role of empathy, how to cultivate skills to be a more effective leader, and how to better assess tensions among (what seems like) polarizing educational reforms.

Better yet, I have made connections among colleagues in the educational field who have introduced as well as offered opportunities that will allow me to hone my skills as a research-practitioner. Right now, I’m excited at the prospects before me and I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that I’m ready for a new challenge.

And another door opens.
