Dear Fall Semester,
It's time we meet again. I can't believe it's already back to school, but you and I both know you seem to come around too soon. It's just your nature.
This year I'm hoping you could take into account a few hopes I have for this semester. Just mere wishes or prayers, requests for a good start to the year, positive thoughts to put out for your consideration:
Let this be a good start to a fulfilling year for everyone who walks into a classroom.
Let the work be meaningful, the frustrations be small, the improvements be grand and the lessons be clear.
Let there be more cookies and surprise treats in the break room.
Let there be happiness in the time given, the earnest of efforts made, and the process of the projects exciting.
Let there be a lot more laughing and less griping.
Let there be a sweet friends with an open doors to walk through.
Let there be plenty of concealor, hair ties, and red lipstick around for when the work gets tough.
Let confidence grow from those moments of doubt.
Let the times of victory last as long as possible.
Let the coffee pot always be hot and the brew always be strong.
Let the joy of what we do shine out and spill over all.
Let there be positivity in every word we say and actual effort to do better and try harder the next time.
Let the favorite leggings never fade and computers never crash.
Let the inspiration from the "aha!" moments fuel us to keep going.
Let the tap shoes be loud, the buns be high and jazz hands be strong.
Most importantly, let us not forget how lucky we are to do what we love.
