You Did It!

Dear Music Teachers,
You did it! You survived another impossibly busy December. You can’t even begin to count the number of concerts, carol arrangements, or illnesses that you surmounted to get from Thanksgiving to today. How many times do you suppose you blew a pitch pipe in the last three weeks?
Congratulations on making it to the other end, and to a deeply welcome break. Time to take care of you, reconnect with family, and reflect on a job well done.
May I suggest that today would be a great day to begin a two-week trial in some mindfulness meditation? Take 5-10 minutes out of your day to center yourself. You’ll be happy for it when 2015 hits.
I’m recentering, reflecting, and rejoicing in a few days to relax. You do the same!
