Things I Learned Today / Thursday, July 1, 2021

Things I learned today…

I have worked nonstop to tie up all the details and make all the decisions surrounding class confirmations. Grueling.

Had a blast people watching tonight at Huey’s. About the time you think it’s just a regular, old Thursday night…*boom*…personal entertainment.

Decision Fatigue is a thing.

This is the week that when I get an email notification, I dread it. And I am going to choose to trust myself, be confident in the decisions I’ve made, and remind myself that I thoughtfully and carefully considered the best interests of every child.

I also have to keep in mind that nobody else walks in my shoes. I can be the most thoughtful, well-intentioned, good-hearted person possible, and I’ll still be challenged. People see life through their own lenses, and maybe even with a cynical view of the world, and I understand that.

The cool thing is if you make decisions thoughtfully, with good intent, and a good heart, they’re always easy to explain. That’s piece of mind.

Teenagers today are wired up different than we were.

I am in the midst of character development for my book. I’m not sure what I’m doing, but I’m learning.

I don’t know if I could choose a favorite ice cream flavor if I had to.

That’s all. We learn everyday, don’t we?
