I have decided that although I have retired from teaching I am not going to describe myself as retired, mainly as that adds about 5-10 years to my age!
Instead I am describing myself as a former teacher who is now a small business owner with a unique range of jewellery.
Words are powerful, and how we describe ourselves is important.
He did not say you will not be storm tossed, you will not be sore distressed, you will not be work weary. He said you will not be overcome.
