There might be some slight, sorta, kinda, maybe, possibility of a job opening to teach 8th, 9th, and 10th grade English at the school my best friend works at. Its not certain but it could happen. My best friend has been bugging me about going to her school for some time now. I’ve had two job offers from her: one at the beginning of the last school year and one at the end. I didn’t take the one at the beginning because I was all set at my school to teach 7th and 9th grade. the one at the end didn’t interest me because it was to teach conversational English in all levels. This possibility seems like a good offer. If only it were official. I’m a little weary of it though. I am not super excited about her school. There are some things I don’t really love. But who am I to say anything, there are a lot of things I don’t love about my own school. Ugh, I’m no good at decision making. Any advice?

Not because anything remarkable happened. Not because things went perfectly smooth. But because I made a conscious choice to have a good day. It wasn’t easy, and at some point I almost got back into my funk, but I managed to snap out of it quickly. Good days don’t happen to you. Good days are a choice. You choose how you will react and if you’ll let it get to you. Today I chose to let it slide. To be calm. To be happy.

Life isn’t always fair.
You don’t always get what you want.
Much less what you deserve.
Others will surpass you unjustly.
People call in favors.
But fret not.
What was meant to be yours will be.
Whether it’s what you wanted or something completely different.
Trust that it will send you down the right path.
