I found a little inspiration and irony in my Starbucks sandwich today. Unwrap. Unwind. A simple label that defined the afternoon. As final grades were solidified into our student information system, I could almost feel the sighs of relief or pits of disappointment. Whatever the grade. Whatever the decision. Unwrap. Unwind.
Unwrap your anger, should of, could of, if only.
Unwind your mental state into one of confidence and ease.
Because at this stage of the game we can’t change the grade. We can’t rewrite our apps. But we can rest easy in what we have accomplished. And we can rest easy that this day will not be the defining day. There will be more days of success, failures, acceptances and denials.
