Are you an instructor?
In all affirmations there is a becoming. I am still learning. Every week I teach a little more. I enjoy those moments immensely. I like helping people – the adults just as much as the children. It is one of the few moments I find that I can focus. There are no conflicting priorities. Students always come first. I have a present, pressing task and can let everything else go and think about someone else.
I like to imagine that I am good at it. That I have something to offer that they might not get from a different instructor.
Old friends and family members are sometimes perplexed at my present career. I could do something else. But I don’t want to. I didn’t go into law so I could make money. I wanted to help people. I wanted to make a difference. It may not be on the same scale I imagined in my youth but I believe in our curriculum, I know first hand how it can help and want to pass it on.
