A Wake Up Call

I must put my hand up and admit it. The last month has been tough. I have been pretty sick. It has put a strain on things. While the light has now emerged from the end of the tunnel it has made me re-examine my “why?” as a school leader. In a Catholic school a school leaders spiritual life is central to their success. So, during the past month I have identified eight ways (I know it is a funny number) to enhance a school leader’s spiritual life.

  • Find a beautiful church to sit in. If magnificent cathedrals feel overwhelming or there are none nearby, find one with simple beauty—a statue, painting, stained glass windows, stations of the cross, crucifix, or beautiful tabernacle that you can soak in while in the presence of God.
  • Read the scripture.
  • Exercise in nature. You will see beauty.
  • Books. Look back over favourite book that have lifted your spirit. Ask friend what their favourite book are. Order books you have always wanted to read.
  • Enjoy a coffee. Perhaps with a friend.
  • Watch an inspirational movie. Netflix has become my friend. There are endless stories, documentaries, and lives of the saints on video or online.
  • Focus on family. While I love my students and my staff. They are not my family.

Yes, I am feeling better. We must remember as school leaders we must look after ourselves. And to doctors I have so much respect for you.
