Reading from Class: Re-inspiration on 7 years of Teaching
Thanks for visiting. This month marks my 7th year of teaching. I am so grateful for this. Here’s inspiration I found last year from Philippe Vernier and a post I shared this time last year.
“Do not wait for strength before setting out, for immobility will weaken you further. Do not wait to see clearly before starting; one has to walk toward the light. When you take the first step and accomplish that tiny little act, the necessity of which may be apparent only to you, you will be astonished to feel that the effort, rather than exhausting your strength, has doubled it—and that you already see more clearly what you have to do next.” – Philippe Vernier
“This past April, marked my 6th year of teaching and this quote also used in class really resonated with me on many levels. As I continue this path, I am grateful for the faith and time and energy you have put into practicing with me. I am truly grateful and honored by your support. I very hesitantly dipped my toe into teaching, doubting myself all along the way. Despite the constant fear of failure, I was inspired by a feeling of something important and right about taking the steps that let me share my love for this practice and serve.”
