Have you ever felt in your gut that something was just going to be ok?
Or listened to your gut instinct to stop you from doing something that may have ended in disaster?
How important is your 'gut instinct' to you? When I worked in education, it often steered me in the right direction when managing behaviour or how to pivot a lesson when the students weren't understanding a concept.
I have always believed that 'everything happens for a reason' and 'everything will be alright in the end. If it's not alright, it's not the end'. I don't know where I get this strong belief from, but I used it when I resigned from my career as an assistant headteacher a year ago. I really hoped that Vivid was the right choice, but if it wasn't or if it didn't go well, I believed in my ability to turn things around.
I am always surprised at myself and others that we forget how far we've come, how much we have achieved in our short lives; I mean, we are only roughly a third of the way through - there is so many more exciting things to come. When I have a rough day, I try to list everything I have achieved to give myself a bit of power back; planned meals for the week, managed to stay calm when my toddler had a full on melt down, made orders for 10 hours yesterday etc. etc. Everyone's list is different, but I bet the only person who ever says that what you have achieved isn't good enough, is you! Fact.
