Sometimes life needs a reset.
Everything in my life was going just fine, as viewed from the outside. Inside I knew that I wanted something else. Not more. Not exactly, anyway, but different. The life I had, and the path I was going down, weren’t resonating with me at fundamental level.
I was a teacher at a public high school and loved the teaching and my students, but was burned out from the conflicting expectations of bureaucracy that pulled my time and attention from what I really wanted to do, which was teach the kids.
