The Art of Being Less Good at Art

I cannot remember a time in my life when I did not want to go to school. I have always enjoyed reading, writing, and working hard in the classroom – which is probably why I am still in the field of education now! However, I have never been good at – or even enjoyed trying to learn – art. Even though I enjoy making and playing music, my drawing skills have not improved since I learned how to draw ‘stick figures’; my colouring is still a mess, and my imagination when it comes to drawing/painting is very limited. I do enjoy going to art museums as I do appreciate most art pieces, but I still don’t see the point of me trying to develop my skills.

As I grew up, I realised that it is not important to be good at everything. We are all intelligent in our own different ways. This is what I tell to all the students I work with. Yes, we all need to pass our subjects in school, but being less good in some areas does not make us less than those who are.

Powered by Coffee!

I’m very close to completing a significant year of my doctoral training to become a qualified educational psychologist. It is a tough and long journey, but it is worth every sacrifice. I am continually learning ways to enable pupils, parents and teachers to make their situations better.

I enjoy the challenge of this journey. I feel prepared as long as I have my coffee!:D

Aaaand……. Relax

I don’t normally relax because I like to keep my momentum going. My job requires a lot of reading, writing and thinking. I have multiple deadlines and countless meetings. BUT today, I just relaxed. I chilled and hung like a sloth and I feel great! I feel refreshed, re-energised and most importantly, I feel ready for next week.

Is the glass half full or half empty?

My metaphorical and literal answer to this age-old question:

When I see a glass that needs to be filled, I’m going to fill it. I don’t think it matters if I see it as half-full or half-empty because I’m going to fill it up anyway. I think the question for me would be if whether I see it as a glass that’s mine or not, or whether I need to fill it up or drink the contents.
