A Journey, Not a Destination – #SOL21 – March Slice of Life Challenge Day #7

There are so many ideas and emotions swirling around in my head today.

I don’t know which one to focus on.

As a white, Latinx teacher, I think a lot about what it means to be antiracist.

I know there is a lot of work still to be done within the Latinx community around this issue.

And, I accept the fact that this is a journey not a destination.

Some days, I will be crystal clear about everything.

Other days, not so much.

I also have work to do on myself for myself.

Sometimes I have nothing to contribute to the conversation.

Other days I have a lot to say, but is it my place to say it?

Then, I think: if not me, then who?

Can I (we) wait for someone else to step up to the plate?

Of course, I (we) can’t. I have to find the courage to show up, as imperfect as that may turn out to be.

I have made mistakes – said too much or too little, done too much or not enough.

I will continue to make mistakes.

However, I am committed to this work.

Are you?

    This tension – said too much or too little, done too much or not enough – is where I sit so much of the time. And constantly questioning myself. I love your commitment to showing up. 🙂
