Today the prompt is rip, so since we don’t write on paper anymore or napkins because we have digital devices, and, since it seems this year has been ripped, I created a “rip in time” at 2100 hours for 2021.

Now, it seems a rather sad thing, but my friend Joy Kirr has a way forward, especially for teachers or anyone whose work brings extra stress because of this year's complete change in our daily lives.

I hope this helps at least one educator.
If you think it will, please RT.

Joy explains her strategies for coping, including caring for oneself and focusing on ONE thing. Take a look-- she provides several ideas:
My reply to Joy:
Joy, this is such a helpful and hopeful post in this temporary impossibility in which we find ourselves.
Five years ago I struggled with something, and I also chose to focus on “I can do this one day at a time.” I can do this “one” thing at a time, and do it well and at my best this moment— I can chose the next best “one” thing for my students, and I will find one good thing with each, even if that one thing is, “that moment has passed— next.”
Hope is looking forward, moving forward, and this blog post shows a way.
Thank you, and thanks to all the teachers struggling along with their students.
Take good care, one step at a time.~Sheri
