Endurance In School

vs. discouragement

Withstanding stress to do my best

To practice Endurance, I will:

  • put my whole heart into everything I do
  • accept both instruction and feedback
  • not let small obstacles deter me from my bigger goal
  • recognize progress in all its forms
  • not be a “quitter”

“Broken Hearts”

Top of mind this month for Educators is the horrible tragedy in Uvalde, Texas.  It has forever changed that entire community.  Though we are over 1300 miles away, our hearts break for them. More than Endurance will be necessary for the families of those slain.  They will need Courage and Compassion to strengthen their Endurance to survive the next few raw months.  Then it’s time for Resilience to kick in as they rebuild a new normal, day by day.  Unfortunately, some won’t be successful.  Marriages will fail, children, who have now lost their innocence, will live in fear and the adults who had to deal with the carnage will never be able to erase those pictures from their minds.  This will be something they will need to actively choose to Endure for the rest of their lives.  Each person who has been touched by this will need to find strategies that work for them.  Let us continue to send our thoughts and prayers to them and promise to not forget their pain.
