I love Merikay's comment - Breathe Deep. Walk the dogs. Dream of the future! I did that. Went to my happy place, the planet of happy dogs, at the dog park. We have the best dog park EVER here at Cherry Creek State park. I hadn't been there in some time. All the plants and trees are shutting down for the winter. I'm sorry that I forgot my camera, no pictures :0( Happy dogs make me smile and laugh. For me, laughing fixes just about anything. I also got to talk to some other people enjoying happy dogs. It was a good time, I will go back soon and get you some pictures.
The title of this post is a quote I found while I was looking for inspiration. I am so excited (and scared) about moving on to try something new. I find myself saying things that I regret. My mouth has always gotten me into trouble, I thought it was improving as I got older. I catch myself saying sentences that end "... but that was eleven years ago" That statement is not helpful to anyone and makes me look like a fool. I'm going in search of my humility. Breathing deep and reminding myself that I am no longer in a senior role. I am here to listen and be receptive. My purpose is to study and learn and carefully progress. No more teaching or advising for now :0)
