Two things prevent us from happiness; living in the past and observing others.

Two things prevent us from happiness; living in the past and observing others.

Life is a journey. Individually and collectively we are on a path each and every day. Each day is a new beginning – a new opportunity to make a difference in the present and to influence the future. As educators, we have the awesome responsibility to shape the future every single day.

We learn from the past, but we will never relive it or recreate it. Yesteryear is gone; it isn’t coming back. When we long for the past, we block happiness in the present. When we compare ourselves to others, we prevent happiness. We must embrace each moment, celebrate the present, and do the work to create the future we desire.
