As I sit here looking out over the water from my apartment couch, I find it hard to be too depressed. 😊
I have been greatly encouraged by these last few days.....by my exploring (all by myself!), by my meeting with new friends, by my shopping- small purchase! 😉 and by my productivity today. Tomorrow is the first day of school. I am nervous, but I also feel good. I feel prepared (or as prepared as I could feel!) and I feel excited to meet the students. Today was mainly a work day at school....but some of the parents and students came by. It was so refreshing and energizing to meet the students and their parents. I felt so much more ME.
I don't have a lot more to say right now. I am sure I will have much more to say after tomorrow! Be sending me good thoughts sometime around 9:00pm your time. 😊
One last thing. I have found this quote to be very encouraging. I had to wait awhile to get it- its on the back of the plaque with the HKIS mission statement on it. I hope you find it uplifting as well!
This life therefore
Is not righteousness
But growth in righteousness,
Not health but healing,
Not being but becoming,
Not rest but exercise.
We are not yet what we shall be
But we are growing toward it,
The process is not yet finished
But it is going on,
This is not the end,
But it is the road.
