For those who know me well…you know I am a self-help junkie! I follow/stalk the Brene’ and Oprah’s of the world. A little over 12 years ago, life came to a screeching halt and the importance of living became a priority. What really gets me though is how life had to come to a screeching halt! I swore then, this will not happen again. How did it happen in the first place? So glad you asked…
In a nutshell, I was so busy taking care of everyone else…I forgot to take care of me! That mistake cost me a couple of years.
I hear daily about SEL, Social Emotional Learning and what we are doing for children, big and little, in the classrooms and schools around our state and nation. You would be hard pressed to pick up a journal these days and not see something addressing SEL.
For those in Wayne County, you have heard my story many times, but for the rest of you, it wasn’t pretty. A cocktail and chips will get you the cheap seats.
