Appreciation post

Updated: May 11, 2019

So it has been an interesting few weeks. We are well and truly into Term 1 and I find myself loving the position I am in at the moment. Yes, I may be casual. No, I don't get paid for holidays. But YES, my mental health is benefiting BIG TIME. I decided to take a day off yesterday and my goddaughter came to visit. I am trying really hard to prioritse my life and those moments and memories mean more to me than any money I lost not working the day. It feels liberating to have said no to so many offers to teach this year. I never knew you could just say no and feel great about it! But it's my life, my choices, my decisions and I am taking control back.

That brings me to the purpose of this post. I have reached 183 views on one of my posts and to say I am excited is an understatement! I was reading some older posts and one mentions how excited I was to have gained 19 views and here we are at 183. Now I know that's not all that much either, but for me it's validation that people are interested in what I have to say and how I project that in this blog.

For whatever reason, there has been a rush of views in the past week. I have been eagerly refreshing the page for the last few days and feeling giddy with every extra view. I have no idea what has caused this little bump in views but I am thankful for it. It might mean some of you are talking about TheMusingBlog and sending your friends my way. So this post is to send out my appreciation to you. If I have managed to brighten your day even for a bit or validate your own feelings around teaching then this blog is all worth it.

I will have a longer post coming next week but in all my excitement I wanted to write up a quick one. I am thankful for every view and every subscriber. It brings me joy and I hope my blog does that for you.
