I started enjoying my new role as a Senior Teacher more, and my change in role afforded me more time to read, reflect and chase after my pupils. I even start blogging about my teaching highlights. I felt my craft is progressing and my repertoire broadening.
I think I have also come to terms with my ego that I am no longer in the middle management team. It sure tool longer than I expected.

1) Health. My health is getting worse. I can feel it. My gastric acting badly.
