How a Moment Can Change Everything
In one moment, a person's life can change forever. Someone can meet her/his soulmate. A person could come across an ad for a job opening that could develop into a career. Through serendipity, anyone can recognize an unexpected opportunity and seize it.
All these moments could happen, and if they did, can only happen in the present.
This is why I show up to class every day to teach high school English with the mind set that anything can happen. On any given day, any lesson, discussion, or interaction can have a significant impact on any of my students. This is also the reason why I enter every class with as much hope as I can arm myself.
I come every day with the hope that someone (hopefully more) will be inspired. Maybe someone will spark a love of learning. There is always a possibility that they will be motivated to push themselves harder and farther than they ever have before.
There are exactly 86,400 seconds in each day. Each second is a moment for something great to happen.
