Some of you have already braved the school return with pencils pointed. Another year of subbing has arrived for me. I must suck it up and leave my studio for the classroom. I’ve composed a little pocket note – as we’re all golems. The note, now covered in clear tape will withstand the test of time. It will be placed in my pocket daily, after the toothbrush leaves my mouth. My golem note suggests: to not get cranky with my family, to breathe deeply in the face of stressful situations, to enjoy every day – even the more challenging ones, to maintain a healthy lifestyle including daily exercise, to create as often as possible, to remember it’s only a small space I occupy and all is possible within that small space…
We don’t need more arms to accomplish our objectives, we need only remember, ‘you can do as much as you can do and the rest will just have to wait.’ In the words of the immortal Scarlet O’Hara, “…tomorrow is another day…”
Thank you. May you dream of nothing but laughter and good cheer.
Arms and Arms created one week ago while feeling sorry for myself… 🙂
