“I want to quit my job” Yes I am very sensitive – it is a gift ❤

Today I got some hurtful criticism from my boss that brought me to my knees. At first I was furious because it felt so unfair. And now I just feel sad about it.

My co-workers were so supportive of me and tried to sooth me back into feeling better. They were on my side and thought my boss had acted without taking the time to get all the facts straight first. I used to think he was a supportive boss but right now it feels far from that. Even the thought of resigning from work has occured to me tonight.

But, I will work on regaining my emotional balance again by focusing on the bigger picture. He really does mean well. He really does know I do a great job. He cares about his teachers, he wants them to feel satisfied with their work. I do feel rather good about having him as my boss. He cares a lot about his students. He wants our students to succeed and feel good. He also wants to do a good job and meet the expectations of others. I think I understand him now, I see the bigger picture. I really do value his caring and his decisiveness. 🌹

It does feel better. I feel like I can breathe again. Writing is one of the best ways I know to find relief and feel better.

  • How do you deal with criticism?

I want to stay at home with my babies forever ❤❤

Relaxation, relief and rest. Those words describe my Sunday night. I am so happy I will be home with my babies an entire week now until I have to get back to work again. I wish I could stay home with them forever. ❤❤

  • What was the best part about your weekend?

You will be more clear, more effective and of more value to those you interact with 🍀

Remember to relax and rest through out your day. Not just phtsically but mentally. It is so easy to get caught up in the desires and wishes of those around you at work and at home or to let your own demands on yourself get too heavy.

Remeber to pause and find your balance again. Stress is not good for your mind or your body. It is not worth it. Just pause, breathe and relax mentally. Look at it from a more general perspective and prioritise.

You have to value yourself and how you feel first. If you feel good you will be more clear, more effective and you will be of more value to those you interact with as well so it is a win win situation.

A fun and intense day at work

This has been an awesome day at work. I have had lessons with my students all day and I have even had some extra time with a few students who really wanted some extra help. 

I love working as a teacher! It is so fulfilling to inspire people see their own possibilities. You get so much back from others when you strenghten their beliefs in themselves.

But now I am tired 🤣. I have slept 1-3 hours each night this week and I am so focused when I am with my students at work and when I am home with my two little babies.

Right now I am choosing to sit down and listen to an audio book we are working on in a class. This will be what I do my last hour at work today before I go home to my babies. ❤

Work – a time for enjoyment, upliftment and fun

A relaxing afternoon at work

Today I have had my last lessons for this year (!!!). This afternoon I spent 3 hours listening to an audio book that our boss wants us to work with. It was a lovely, relaxing afternoon. I adore days like this!

A relaxing day at work

Today was a really good day. I had a lot of fun at work and on my lunch break I had pizza with a friend.

How to be more productive and efficient

Remember to take mini-breaks during your day. Enjoy your fantazy, drift off into a soothing, relaxing scenario and allow your energy to fill up again.

You can be a lot more productive and efficient when you take care of yourself and when you allow yourself to find relief often. 

How you feel is the most important aspect, because it effects everything else.
