Thanks to Farley and her monthly party.
Today is such a great day. For reflecting. For dreaming. But before I get to all that--how about some explanations...
Listening--My house is quiet. Everyone has an electronic devise and are plugged in (not proud of it, but it is what it is).
Loving--On the Saturday of the start of this break, I created a list. (Thanks to Alison at A Teacher's Best Friend for a wonderful post on thinking and being intentional.) Mostly the list gave me permission to rest, and fill my soul with good things that get depleted during the throes of the school week/year. So, as I come to the end of my Break, I am loving how I feel: rested, refreshed, and grateful.
Thinking--Nothing more needs to be said. I planned on doing it sooner, but some other stuff took priority (rest, refresh, gratitude).
Needing--Sometimes I just need my BTPSM (best teaching partner soul mate). Hoping that can happen soon. Check out this article... Teacher BFF or BTPSM in my case for a smile.
One Little Word-- I think this year will take some courage. Good things are happening, and hard things are happening. So, I will fill up my courage cup and do the best I can in every situation.
Do you have a word for the new year? I think this is the first time I've had a word. My wish is that my word can guide me and keep me grounded.
Here's to a great 2016!!!
