I just want to say--
I was jarred to my core by some events that happened in October and the fallout. On the daily life surface, it looks like I've been going on just fine, but in that deep soulful place I was hit hard.
Metaphorically, the plane was going down, and it took everything I've had to just reach for the oxygen mask that fell from the ceiling. Once I got the oxygen mask on and started breathing, I realized I really needed the silence--my creativity felt dormant. (I think this is a survival strategy--of a beautiful and enlightening sort.)
What does this mean for Brave Teachers? I can't wait to spend the next few months sharing my deepened passions and dreams and hope for all of you! You will see dramatic changes around here over the next few months--website facelift, opportunities for deeper community, cool art, and lots of super simple super gentle relaxation and self care strategies. Stay tuned. . .
And I want to just take a moment to speak to the amazing brave teachers who are struggling right now to put one foot in front of the other. If you are feeling overwhelmed, even crushed, please take a moment to breathe in this truth: You are not alone! You are dear and precious and loved more than you even know.
I'm so pleased to be back with you.
Sending out courage and strength,
Brave Teacher Mim
