The writing topics I posted on Monday evoke too much raw emotion for me to address at the moment, especially right now when I’m feeling so relaxed. That’s what being on vacation does for me, even a short one – I feel the tension draining from me with each passing day. I end up doing more of the things I like and that make me happy. I read more, write more, and spend more quality time with my family. I smile more and worry less. Let’s face it: I have more time that’s my own.
And, as Spring Break winds down I wonder how I can keep this feeling from fading come Monday. Is this the normal cycle of a teacher’s life or can we create another cycle that balances school and family?
