Right now, I am not exactly sure how I feel. My emotions sort of feel like a large bowl of Brunswick Stew. Everything is in there all at one time, jumbled up, mash, smashed and in pieces.
For the past fifteen years, I have served on the North Carolina Science Teachers Association in various capacities. For the past three years, it has been in the presidency role: first vice president, then president and this past year, past president. Tonight, I finished my term of office and have no further responsibilities.
Not sure how I feel. I am relieved to be done with the position. At the same time, I feel not needed. I feel having no goal. It feels strange.
Next chapter in my professional leadership development starts now. Where to go? What to do?
Only time will tell and I will embrace the journey as it unfolds. Until then, I wait.
