Living Life Today

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope some day you’ll join us

And the world will be as one

Something shifted over the past few weeks. The world started waking up from it’s unexpected midwinter’s nap. Slowly stretching, pressing snooze, stretching some more. With trepidation we started to reengage. We have slowly started living after our unimaginable, unprecedented, forced break from life.

It is safe to say we are all a little shaken.

We are not the same.

It is safe to say that’s not a bad thing.

We were just given an unlikely gift of time. We didn’t ask for it. We didn’t know what to expect as we started to unwrap it. There was a sense of hope that we would be able to use the time to refocus, align our priorities, and recommit to the meaningful responsibilities of our lives.

Well… Time’s Up!

It is time to ask ourselves the tough questions.

Who are you committed to? Who is important to you? What are you doing to honor, protect and celebrate them?

What are you focused on? Is it meaningful? Does it align with your life’s purpose?

What are you doing? Is it helping to make a better world for the children of our children’s children?

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too

Are there things you’re ready to let go of? Are there changes you want to make? My advice is to start now. Soon enough life will be moving fast again, steamrolling the intentions and plans we have made during our quarantine.

Imagine no possessions I wonder if you can No need for greed or hunger A brotherhood of man

Our friends and family are not the same. Some of us may have experienced spiritual growth, others may be coming out of this angry or afraid. Some are waking up in financial distress or mourning the loss of a loved one. We need to tread lightly. We need to be kind. We need to listen. Above all else we need to greet each other with open hearts and open minds.

Imagine all the people living life in peace

It’s easy… If you try

I am an educator who thrives on helping others. I spent close to 15 years teaching and then as an administrator in the New York City Public School System. During that time I completed my first Masters Degree in Teaching Reading and and additional degree in administration. I currently tutor students in all subjects and grades. In addition, after completing the Parent Advocacy Class with The Federation of Children with Special Needs several years ago, I am a parent advocate. I plan to dedicate my time to helping other families of children with special needs.
