|CSUF Arboretum: Going places!|
It's been a great summer: one of my best ever.
I wrote to a friend today: The coming school year is full of changes and challenges -- and that's different how?
So much of life is about outlook and attitude. It's not always easy to make sense of things, but if you ponder a bit... or a lot... for a long time... sometimes things make sense...
Or you at least can create a mental game plan. I did that today over on my other blog in a post called Adapt and Thrive!
|St. Patrick's rose: a beauty!|
That post is really a result of a lot of summer-long pondering over issues at work. But many of the conclusions I reached have broader applications.
I end that post with a quote from a friends FaceBook profile:
"Kites rise highest against the wind -- not with it."
Life is full of problems, challenges, disappointments, etc.

There may be an ill wind blowing, but I don't have to be driven along by it. I can be like the kite and rise up.
That's my plan for the coming school year! (I may even decorate my classroom with a kite or two to stay reminded.)
