Here's Some Wise Advice for the New School Year for All Educators

Sometimes there is nothing to add to the wisdom offered by others. I have been reading The Heart Is Noble: Changing the World from the Inside Out by Ogyen Trinley Dorje. In this book he offers this advice to us about our livelihoods or jobs. I think this wisdom can go a long way to helping us keep ourselves centered and focus on what really matters.
"Whatever work you do, you have to give yourself opportunities to just be. Even if it is only once a day, you should find a moment to just be yourself in the course of each day. This could be through a short period of meditation or quiet reflection in the morning or in the evening, or in whatever way best suits you. The point is to reconnect with yourself. Otherwise, the whole day you are running around and busy, and it is easy to lose yourself. To guard against this, you should make efforts to return to yourself and recollect what is essential for you."
As you begin this new school year, take time to reconnect with who you are and why you do what you do. Wise advice for the new school year.
