My one thought about my job today: I can be replaced in a minute. The leadership of my school is so remarkable, I could probably be replaced in less than a minute.
Yes, it’s true for me and for you. No one is irreplaceable in their work.
I recognized this shortly after my mom died and I fully grasped that she was truly irreplaceable.
Never to be replaced.
Yes, we have had phenomenal people “fill in the vast gap” my mom left, but no one can restore her place in our lives as a mom and super nana.
A job is a unique arena of life as we all need to find ways to house and feed ourselves, but this great loss made me understand the temporality of work and life.
This morning, I am interviewing for a new job for the next school year. I am taking this mentality into my interview and I feel free.
Free to ponder.
Free to choose.
Free to open the door and see if this new opportunity will help me be a better wife, mom, friend, teacher and human being living on this earth.
Free to live!
So folks, as you ponder this next year ahead of you, what would you change if you knew you could be replaced in your job tomorrow, but never be replaced as a mother, father, daughter, brother, sister, cousin…?
Never to be replaced within your “family”.
Have an epic Tuesday and love what you do.
