Too Much…

“Children think not of what is past, nor what is to come, but enjoy the present time, which few of us do.” – Jean de La Bruyère

I tried to find the original link to this precious video to no avail. The timing of sharing this piece is two-fold: the quote above from the daily Happiness Project and the Daily Prompt:
“Describe the one decision in your life where you wish you could get a “do-over.” Tell us about the decision, and why you’d choose to take a different path this time around./Photographers, artists, poets: show us ITERATION.”

My one do-over? Properly saying goodbye to a group of students who meant a lot to me. Instead, I ended my year there having packed up the room, turned in my keys and badge and never looked back. This particular group of students deserved better of me, a proper ‘closure’ versus returning to yet another vacancy, another ‘desertion.’
Thankfully, they had/have great people like J- and T- to help them through it.
