I’d be lying if I said my blog won’t change from my working full time now. It will. I will work it out to blog everyday eventually. It won’t be right now and it won’t be in the next week. But I will. I have already made sure to set boundaries with no blogging at work. My school is a 1:1 ipad school and what that means is I have to preach daily the importance of students separating their personal selves with their public selves. What a great opportunity to model that for them. Plus the thought of the two mingling is scary to me right now. When I am in front of them I am professor or Mrs. I am not MR. What that means is my blog posts will take planning, scheduled posts and more thought because I know you don’t always want to hear about teaching.
So my sharing for today is simple. I promise to share this transition in my life and my adjustments to it as timely as I can. I share that I will not disappear into the oblivion of dead and gone blogs. And last but not least I promise to always share my true self. Recently I have been accused that that is not happening. And that is fine but it is just an opinion and I take it as such. Life is far too short to try and please and convince everyone of who I am.
I always revert back to the old saying…. PERCEPTION IS REALITY. What you get here is Mommy Rhetoric’s perception of MY WORLD. No one else’s and I speak for nobody else. I speak for me. I am passed the stage in my life where I will apologize for who I am on here or in the real world. If you don’t like, it is fairly simple. Take your mouse to the top right and click that glaring red x. If you know me in real life and feel the same, “Well great!” Same thing just apply it to life by exiting from mine. It may seem heartless, but I am over pleasing and answering to anyone else. I know who I answer to. It is God, it is my family and it is me.
I am proud of who I am. What I have become and how I feel like as a wife, mother, teacher, friend, sister, daughter in law and really the list goes on. I can spend my whole life worrying about impressing you or you or even you and never win. Or I can spend my life being me and surrounding myself with those who love me for me. Life is too short and too precious to get caught up anywhere else.
Take note: I will never ever address this again. If you choose to read my blog and accept that that means you know me inside and out then you are three steps by behind. I am a real person, with real feelings with a real life. So refer to the above and proceed accordingly.
