Sometimes Little Things Can Be Big Things
See that? It's just a little tiny toy tractor but in the right perspective, it might look a whole lot bigger than it actually is. Wow, what a week it's been. I blew a gasket today. You see the little things, they always add up. You try to blow them off, you do. It's not a big deal. It's not until you can take no more and it sends you over the edge. As much as I've complained about my job this year, I still take it VERY seriously. Educating young children, or any children in general, is a very serious job. I have had an outside influence in my class and I really lost it today when things did not go according to my expectations. It was a thing that has been building, and building, until today I could take no more.
I guess it goes the same way for life in general. Things add up. They build up to a point where it just takes one tiny little thing to push things over the edge. And really, I wonder what the lesson is. What should I learn from this? What should anyone learn from the slow build up of things that can go wrong? I don't have the answer. Is it something that we allow, because we don't wish to face it head on? Or is it something that just comes to pass?
