So, I was induced today; prematurely induced at my new school.
I don’t officially start till September but I was there all day hearing about the school and meeting senior staff and other new recruits.
There was coffee and there were pastries and Croissants on arrival and later a light lunch was provided. I always feel that this is a good sign. I didn’t overdo it but I always regret not taking a Tupperware container when free food is provided!
I dont have any particular expectations but it’s an “outstanding” school and miles better than croydon or lewisham in terms of facilities, resources and behaviour so thats a significant improvement. I was also thinking today that a year ago I was spending £600 a month on travel and now I will be spending £40.
Thats a BIG plus. And the commute is 30 minutes.
This was always the goal.
It took a year to get here but I’ve persevered and I’ve learned a lot along the way. A LOT.
I guess the point, and I do have one, is that setting a goal is only the first step.
Sticking to it is another and accepting that the goal may be further in the distance than preferred is often the reality.
Staying positive and focused is essential. I can’t say that I always did. I’m only human and I did, at times, despair.
The goal was set and it took patience, perseverance and a big dose of HOPE and FAITH to get there.
