Had a hard week last week, and with today promising to be a Monday of all Mondays, I needed some inspiration, some vim for my vigor. I spent too much time worrying about the wrong last week: failed plans, an unimpressed parent, etc. And I spent too little time worrying about the right: successful kids, inspired kids, etc. This week I will put my energy in the positive. For my kids. For myself. We both deserve it.
And so, today, I will turn to one of my guys, Robin Williams. No, he was not officially an educator, but he played one once in a powerful movie. Still sad about his passing. He and his characters are indelibly woven into my spirit.
“You’re only given a little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it!” –Robin Williams
“No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world.” –Robin Williams
And with that, I will crash headlong into my week, made strong again by another’s words, as I seek to make strong those around me with mine. We can change the world.
Sorry for the short post. Happy Monday, all.
