i am such a quote person. i love words and inspiration but this one is my top favorite (more favorites below):
i found this quote about 5 years ago at a time in my life when i was realizing that a teaching was not for me. i have wanted to be a teacher since i was 5. i'm not sure i ever gave any other answer when i was growing up to the question "what do you want to be when you grow up." i still have the "all about me" poster from kindergarten saying i wanted to be a teacher and, while i know i entertained the idea of other careers, there was never a real question of wanting to be a teacher.
fast forward and i have a fairly new degree in child development, have worked with children for the previous 3 years, and suddenly, i'm just not sure.
i found this quote through twitter and it really spoke to me at that moment. i even remember exactly where i was when i saw it (the location being totally inconsequential.. it just was that important to me in that moment).
this quote has kind of stayed with me for the last 5 years and even now plays a role.
here i am still working with children and still in the same position. i need to let go of that plan. i did there for awhile, and then life happened and i wasn't offered much of a choice but to return to what i know. to what my resume speaks to.
but these words are always in the back of my head. always there reminding me that this isn't my path and i need to follow a new one.
