“Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, it only saps today of its joy.”
~ Leo Buscaglia.
“No matter how dark the moment, love and hope are always possible.”
~ George Chakiris
There is much to worry about in our world, community, families, and homes. Life can quickly become overwhelming with worry, anxiety, and stress from all the little and big things we experience if we let it. Life in Morgan School District is no different. Administrators, teachers, and staff have plenty of stress and concern about their daily assignments as well as a large helping of worry for the future.
Gratefully we have wise administrators and school board members who encourage us to have hope for the future and find joy in our lives as educators. They provide this encouragement through positive interactions, communications, and expectations. I would like to express my gratitude to them for their positive support! Their actions, though controversial to many in the community, show a vision for a vivid future in Morgan School District.
In this holiday season with its ups and downs and worries, I find it important to remember and create joyful moments. Joy is, in my opinion, a feeling of true happiness. It is brought on by many things. Almost always the things that bring us joy are when we are serving or being served by others.
As educators we have chosen a career that is based on service. Because of this, most of us often receive our best paycheck when students learn a concept we have worked on with them, or when they smile because they have experienced success. That is why we are in education. We love the bright things an educated generation of students can bring us. For most of us, education is a joyful career that shows us hope and love.
In this holiday season may you and your acquaintances forget your worries for a while and experience some joy. No matter how dark the future may look, we can always find love, hope, and joy if we look.
