I’ve towed and weighed many options about my work situation here in Costa Rica! Jonathan wants to finish out the year at the school, which is very noble of him to do. I, on the other hand have not been as loyal and noble to the task at hand. I am so tired of dealing with bullshit with the administration that I am no longer willing to tolerate it. I think the only way that I would be willing to stay on board is to work part-time. I have talked it over with Jonathan and he fully supports this decision for me to pursue this. I am currently looking for someone who would like to work in my classroom part-time, which will be half of my salary, which is well worth it to me. Right now I have two potential people who I am still waiting to see how interested they are to take my class part-time. Then once I get that clear, I will then go to the director of the school to get his approval. I am hoping that the director will consider this because if he doesn’t, it will very hard not to call it quits! I have prayed about this, and hoping that there would be another way, other than quitting, so that Jonathan could pursue his desire to stay here, and, as much as I have tried to wake up and find new profound perspective as to why I have to suffer and shovel through shit every day, I have yet come to the understanding of what is really keeping me here. I don’t want to hinder or take this opportunity away from Jonathan, so I am going to do my best to keep peace with the administration here and do what I can to survive this time, even if that means they do not take my offer! If you think of me, please say a prayer that things will go smoothly, and that this part-time idea comes into play…

Hi! Thanks for coming by and checking out my blog. If I had to tell you anything about myself and why I write, it would be this...
I love to write about things that inspire me or captures my attention, or merely what is happening in my life. I don't proclaim to have it all figured out, but I do know this, that I am simply human that has problems and I am not afraid to expose them here. Vulnerability and being authentic is something I strive for, even if it looks ugly at times.
So please feel free to come and have a conversation with me. I can't wait to dig in deep with you!
I am learning how to live loved by God and embrace His grace that will help me fly in freedom. Let the wings of grace take me, all of me, for who I am and not for who I should be.
