Do you know how hard it is to work at a school every day? It’s super hard. I feel like I have to be extroverted every day, and I feel like I have to stay at school for such a long time! It’s exhausting! But, I am having a really good time so far. I miss the little kiddies a lot, but I am slowly moving on.
I don’t know about anyone else, but sometimes, I feel joy almost bubbling from my person. Have you ever felt that—it’s like I am so happy that I just forget to breathe. I think that is the best feeling in the whole world, and it can’t be forced.
This—this was not one of those times.
This is called, “Danny made me wake up really early, and I am really upset.”
This should have been one of those times…
But I decided to be a poop and not smile for the picture.
This, though, was one of those times.
This picture happened after senior night—my last collegiate game of soccer. I was so excited to have finished on a really high note, and I was so excited that I had gotten to play hard in my last game. And, I was thankful that my knees were all in one piece—at least on the outside 🙂
So, today, I pledge to run out and find more things that make me feel like I am drowning in joy. I will chase after soccer balls until I feel like my lungs will burst. I will sing at the top of my lungs—even if someone else is watching. I will laugh as loud as I want even if I am nervous about other people making fun of my laugh 🙂
P.S. I hope this didn’t sound too much like that one song, “I Hope You Dance.” That wasn’t my intention.
