Today, did not go nearly as planned. I had, what I thought was, an awesome day.
HOWEVER, it ended with a strike. SOME OF MY STUDENTS WENT ON STRIKE! Lesson plan gone- that was it!🤗
They were LOUD AND CLEAR..... not working today!
🤣Time to get creative and change gears quickly! AKA: reflection-in-action..... pull from my bag of tricks and move on (fast).
These moments of ‘oh 💩, it’s not working’ happen to all of us- get use to them! It is these moments that make us laugh down the road....but also help us grow now.
Here are my biggest three take aways from lessons and days gone south:
✔️Learn from them: grow your bag of tricks. ✔️Find the humour: laugh at it- plans take detours often! ✔️Move on: we all have lessons that stink- no biggie!
💕My advice is to try not to sweat the little stuff- especially when it comes to missteps. There is always a tomorrow or another lesson that same day- take what you can from the moment and move on. When you are ready, revisit the day or the lesson. Reflect on it- maybe you will find the learning, maybe you won't- but you will have a more positive outlook on what happened.
