Our priorities are what we do, not the things we say we do


About Frank Hurt

A woman once told him, "Frank when you grow up you're going to be brilliant and handsome."

It turns out Frank's mother is pretty good at predicting the future. Almost as good as Frank is at writing his own bio in third-person perspective.

    Unfortunately I live this to a fault sometimes. I am so committed to living what I believe and living what my priorities are that I forget others don’t. When someone says one thing and behaves in a way contrary, I begin to become disillusioned with humankind. When I get discouraged about this, my husband gently reminds me that not everyone is like me; not everyone behaves the way I do in similar situations, and that I have to stop judging people on what I would do and just let them be who they are. The one thing that I hope to leave behind as a legacy to the students who watch me live my life out in front of them every day is that I was real. That when I say I care about my students they know it to be true because they have seem me hug someone sad in the hallway or inquire about a sick grandparent. When I say they mean more to me than just faces behind a desk they know it to be true because they see me in the stands at a basketball game or in a chair at a dance or piano recital. My priorities are easy to see because they are right there in front of your eyes for everyone to see–for better or worse.

    • I have to admit, it brings me a certain comfort to hear you say that you, too, have difficulty where it comes to accepting that others do not necessarily live by these words. I have a tough time remembering that myself!
