Religion or not; Sending out good vibes

As a teacher, religion has always been something that was a question that you don’t ask. 

Religion is a controversial topic that is either a heavy debate ending with offended people or a topic you just don’t discuss openly. Personally, I’ve always been curious about religion because it wasn’t explicitly taught or introduced to me growing up. What resulted growing up without a specific religion chosen for me: I was able to come to my own conclusions. 

While in no way am I an expert in my own religion or others, there are some things I believe that help me get through the day. 

I believe that everything happens for a reason. I believe that the universe has a plan for us and that each good or bad decision that changes your life… there’s a reason for it. 

I believe that if you send out good vibes into the universe, you’ll get good vibes back. There’s no science behind this, but having a positive mindset often results in positive outcomes… at least in my experiences. 

I believe that there are signs that help us make decisions. No I don’t think that some higher being is sitting up there telling us to do one thing or another but I do believe that the universe is not out to get us. It’s just trying to help so it sends us hints now and then; kinda like trusting your gut. When you really want something and it’s just not happening for whatever reason, maybe it’s not the right time or it’s not meant to happen. 

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think that we should give up trying and working hard because the universe has a plan. It just helps me get through the day knowing that there’s a reason for all the obstacles and all the frustrations. It helps knowing that working hard pays off but even if you mess up, it’s ok. 

So in times like this, when I struggle with things in my life, I like to think that it’s all part of the plan and I just have to hold out till the good part. 

So I hope today, you send out some positive vibes, get some signs you were waiting for and trust that everything will be ok even if it’s not the way you envisioned.

Off we go! 

Welcome back lovelies! 

I hope you enjoyed the time off ( if you had it) and are now ready and refreshed for Monday! 

I took advantage of the break by going down to Miami with the bae. It wasn’t as warm as we had hoped but nevertheless it was great to get away for a little bit. Check out the sights: 


It was great to see how other people live even if it’s within our country. It was fascinating to see how a little sun changes the vibe entirely. 

Anyway, back to the chaos of reality today. This month is going to be crazy busy with report cards, parent teacher conferences, papers for class, doe deadlines and door decorating contests. I’ll tell you a secret… I’m overwhelmed just thinking about it 🙈. 

But this is the life I chose, full of chaos and busyness, so onwards I go. Wish me luck!! 

A little Monday motivation featuring Dr.Seuss:

When things don’t go as planned, go with the flow

Things don’t always go as planned. Let’s be real… when do they actually go as planned?? 

Well I’m slowly learning that that’s ok. It’s ok not to have everything planned out to the smallest detail. Sometimes the days that don’t go as planned are so much better than those that were. 

So as you start this new week, keep in mind: it’s ok to go off course. It’s ok to plan things out but it’s also ok to just go with the flow. 

Who knew it would only take me 23 years to learn it’s ok to go with the flow?? 😂

Happy Monday! I hope this week goes better than you planned! 

Also Halloween 👻 is coming up!! 🎃 teachers can celebrate Halloween too ok. 

Doing anything fun this coming weekend?? Let me know 🙂 

Also don’t forget to share your school appropriate Halloween costumes because this teacher needs some inspiration haha. 

Have a great day lovelies
