Don't Place Your Diploma on a Shelf

We are all born with a desire for exploration, but some people lose their sense of adventure along the way and just become "content." There's nothing wrong with being content, it's definitely fine for some people because being content usually also comes with feeling "safe." I was content teaching third grade. I had tenure, so I felt "safe," but if I had just settled for "content" and "safe," I would have never discovered my love for the unknown. I would have always wondered - what if? I may have never truly known myself and what I was capable of achieving. So... don't place your diploma on a shelf and settle for "content" and "safe." Go out there and satisfy your sense of wonder.
