April 14th - 10 minutes...
I have 10 minutes… what can I write to myself in ten minutes? It shouldn’t be so hard. My mind is constantly going in this and that direction. Why ten minutes, because I must pick up my son. I do so because I am ok with it, but it is also an enabling act. He should have his license. Some people perhaps don’t want one and I cannot figure out if this is the case for him or not. He didn’t get it as a teenager, because of me, according to him. I was tough on him, but the reasoning was right. I wanted him to have a good student rating for insurance and I thought this would incentivize him at school. He is smart but would not apply himself, his grades a reflection of this. I learned it was more than just not applying, the school system was not positioned to be effective for him to succeed to his full potential. What a spiral this would have… sometimes he was stereotyped as the bad student, teachers wouldn’t try to accommodate his needs, he rebelled and became truant… and he never took driver’s education when most kids do. Now, I must go get him.
Hmmm, times up…day 254!
Thank you if you choose to join the journey. Let's hope it is more fun than tears!
