I love this bright red pot with old fashioned wooden measuring sticks. When I saw it at a craft faire it immediately made me think of the end of each school year. . .
Al final del ano escolar es cuando una profesora evalua no solamente el progreso de sus estudiantes, sino su propia eficiencia como maestra. Se pregunta si realmente ha sido una inspiracion para sus alumnos y si en efecto estan a la altura de avanzar al nivel mas alto. Es la estacion dura de medicion.
The end of the school year is when an instructor evaluates not just the progess of her students, but her own efficiency as a teacher. She asks herself if she has really been an inspiration for her students and if they truly measure up to advancing to the next level. It's the hard season of the measuring stick.
We can and should measure things like progress and growth. Sometimes, however, we measure ourselves against one another, or others do the same to us. Enjoy your life without comparisons and be free.
