“Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.” ― Leo Tolstoy
I don’t know if it’s the cool (very cool) Fall air, the crispness of everything, or what it is – but even though I am physically ill, I feel amazing.
Yesterday for the first time ever I did a presentation for a group of grade 5 French Immersion students (yes, I did it in French). My subject – archaeology.
I am floored by how excited the kids were and how much they genuinely seemed to enjoy it! I didn’t see eyes rolling, I didn’t see anyone with their head down doodling, no whispers – they were focused on my presentation!
I feel reinvigorated by their energy to learn. So many great questions from them too! But the biggest one was – why wasn’t I working as an archaeologist now? That’s a tough one for me and filled with regret, but suddenly the regret isn’t as strong and it’s been replaced by a happy thought of regaining my footing and digging in to the future.
