Do you ever need to reboot?
When the weather stays at a constant state of hot and sticky, month after month, it is hard to reboot. When the Back To School overwhelm sets in and everyone wishes they had more summer there is no time for rebooting.
I see the signs of fall. It is creeping in. The grape harvest has started for Mr. Winemaker. If I really listen carefully the wind rustles the leaves whispering... Reboot, Sheila. Time to reboot.
I listen. This is my favorite time of year.
Summer is blindingly bright. I love the transition. Fall is watercolors. Rich and earthy. Yummy smells. The anticipation of the holidays coming is everywhere. Snuggling under a blanket. Lighting candles. I am ready for everything fall offers.
Last weekend I pulled out my large, orange Halloween bin from the garage. We recently moved in to a new house. I enjoyed the challenge of finding new places for my special spooky decor.
My pumpkin candle is lit, and candy corn is at the ready. Rebooting in progress.
The Sheila Jane Teaching YouTube channel is getting a reboot as well.
Each week I post free teaching content---- Radio shows---- Teachers We Love videos---- Free content just for you.
Teach Happy. Live Happy. Be Happy. is integral to the Sheila Jane teaching philosophy. Most videos on my channel focus on Teaching Happy.
To live and be happy is just as important as teaching happy. The last Friday of each month will be a celebration of teacher life balance. I will vlog (think video meets blogging) my interests like makeup, decor, adventures, cooking. I am bursting at the seams to let you into my home, my life and share some of my passions.
In addition to the vlog, there will always be a end of the month freebie surprise waiting for you. A treat to celebrate the end of a successful month of teaching. This month's freebie is 'The Classroom Guestbook.' Watch the video to see the freebie in action.
After you have watched the video, I would love to know what is your favorite Halloween candy?
Leave me a comment below. Like a kid anticipating a pillow case full of Halloween candy I look forward to reading and replying to the comment treats you leave for me.
I hope as the season changes from summer to fall you get a chance to reflect and reboot. Take care of yourself and pamper yourself. You made it through Back To School, and you deserve to unwind a bit. Reconnect with your passions. Get out in nature. Put the school work down. It will be there tomorrow. Your happiness is top priority.
Breathe and reboot.
Love and happiness,
