All in 47 Days.

Work is so slow right now. The kids are on vacation for a few months, all the teachers are on leave and because I am on a contract, it means I need to go in and sit around for eight hours with nothing to do, in an empty school. For months, it was all I looked forward to because I’d felt almost burnt out from the children. Yet, doing nothing makes me feel so useless. This has messed up my sleeping patterns and my overall mood immensely. It feels as though time is going so slowly, only because I have nothing going on and I have heaps to look forward to. I wanted to write them down as to lift my spirits and be thankful for them.

I will be going on holiday to Thailand in 47 days. A place I’ve always wanted to visit.

I will be going home to South Africa in 57 days – a place I have not been in two years.

I am seeing someone who makes me feel good about myself.

My life will change completely in 47 days, and I am so ready for this change.

  1. Use the time away from the children to re-energize. Down time is important. Your travel plans sound very exciting. Are you going home to live there or to visit? I’ve always wanted to visit South Africa, as well as the Rift Valley.

  2. Sometimes, at the end of a day in which I’m pretty much sedentary, I look back on that day and say what a waste it was. However, when I go back to work, I feel like I have motivation and purposed again. I’ve just spent 12 days on vacation, sleeping in, watching tv, and playing guitar. Now I feel that the stress that had building from work has gone away.
