Totally Acceptable. . . . 

  1. To make it a priority in 2021 to appreciate the "small things" in life,
  2. To discover a new hobby that can help you decompress from the uncertainty of our current circumstances,
  3. To take a scheduled day (or days) off just to relax and regain your mental strength,
  4. To be patient with your students and yourself as you navigate the remainder of this school year,
  5. To choose kindness in every situation.

Stay Inspired!
