I just love this quote! It's true that the wind doesn't always blow your way. When that happens, some people sit still or fuss and complain. The thing to do it adjust your sails. Be proactive and make it work for you - easier said than done sometimes.
My friend and coworker from way back when, Jackie Reed, ordered one of these for herself. She love the stamped work in the background and asked for burgundy lettering. The next day she emailed me back and asked for another one for her daughter. She is in college and just needed a little reminder about adjusting her sails, too!
I just attended a PBS (Positive Behavior Support) conference in Knoxville. These are some of the wonderful people that I work with. I've only been at my school a year and a half, but I feel like I've known them forever. I had gotten sort of worn out being a teacher. It felt routine and I'll just say it, I was bored and frustrated. I adjusted my sails a bit and made the move. It was scary, but I am so glad that I did it. The wind is definitely blowing my way.
