Letting Go

This school year has been one of letting go. Letting go of the position I've had for several years and returning to a grade level I haven't taught in over 10 years. Letting go of feelings that are destructive to me personally. And letting go of relationships that are not beneficial to me. I've worked hard to get to this point. I'm ready to move on, to assume my new position and work with a new team. Now I'm wondering why other people aren't letting go as easily as I am.

I'm having a hard time with this idea -- that I'm moving on and others aren't. Why not? It seems so simple to me, and yet I know that it's not. It's taken hard work to get to this point and I KNOW that. And yet....I don't want to talk about the past anymore. I don't want to go over and over the same conversations one more time. I want to move forward.

It's time to let go.

I think it's awesome that you've come so far and are ready to move on from the job you've had for so long. When I read your post I think of many different things, but I know it's the job you're talking about. I'm proud of you and I'm thankful for part of what's making it easier for us...even though it's making MY hair fall out. ya Jenn!
