Yesterday I received some unexpected news that will change my life in a big way. My teaching position will probably be eliminated, and because of the way my contract was written, I will not be reassigned elsewhere. I feel devastated and also betrayed. I cried for a while because I have been a loyal and devoted teacher for many years. It hurts to be pushed out.
This is a time to get my finances in order and check my budget. This is a time for me to be gentle with myself and realize that I have the full summer off! I'm going to have time to work with my grandkids and help my son and his family settle into their new home. I'll be focusing on my teaching skills and personal development of my sewing skills and writing a new resume. I'm 65, and maybe I'll continue teaching part-time.
Maybe it wasn't bad news after all! I have faith that everything will turn out okay.
