I'm going to let the pictures speak for themselves for this post. I've always been someone who doesn't really know how to stop. The past year has taught me a lesson. What if I hadn't got better? I'd never have taken the time to slow down, relax and enjoy life. Life is too short. It's a gift we shouldn't waste. We do ourselves, our families, our colleagues and most importantly, our students no favours if we don't try to find a balance. It makes us better teachers and better human beings. I learned this the hard way.
