Just today I saw the above tweet by P Ottley-O'Connor, someone who I don't know at all, but was retweeted by Kat Howard, an educator who I do follow. I love that I don't have to know or follow someone to still be able to learn from them and their ideas.Best advice to myself - Look after myself, so I can look after others to enable them to make a difference for learners #Teacher5adaySlowChat— P Ottley-O'Connor (@ottleyoconnor) April 5, 2016
The above tweet has an idea that I have been struggling with and haven't been able to work out a solution to yet. We need to be careful and look after ourselves if we are going to be able to look after others. What a profound statement and yet, how many of us actually take advantage of it and truly look after ourselves? I know it's something I'm desperately lacking and need to find a solution to fast before I totally burn out and can't be effective in my many duties as a husband, father, teacher, and friend.
Thanks Kat for retweeting such an important message that helped me learn today!
