Okay, so, it has REAAAAALLLLLYYYY been a long time since I have blogged. Call it Covid fog brain. Call it procrastination. Call it being too busy, or lack of priorities. All I know is that today I felt compelled to blog, again! So, here it goes.
Today is "Dress for Success" day, and everyone was supposed to dress up in their best business wear. And I totally blanked out. Here I sit, in my nice tshirt, casual green jacket, and khaki pants. Even tennis shoes. So totally not dressed for success. However, I began to think about this as I was taking on a well deserved snack break.
I am eating my store brand (yes, I'm that cheap) cereal with marshmallow bits in it. And I began to reflect how both the plain jane cereal and the marshmallow bits need one another. If you have all of one, it's nice for a moment, but then it's just too much. Either too sweet. Or too grainy. But together, they make a mighty fine breakfast cereal. The proportions are just right.
So as I looked out in the hall to see those students who dressed up, today, and the ones who didn't, I am reminded that it takes all kinds. We do need to practice dressing for the occasions, as well as using our voices (professional, casual, familial, etc. ) to fit the moment. But in all of the mix, we are the perfect combination of sweet and grainy.
Happity Monday, peeps! May the week be filled with both!
