January 2016 CURRENTLY


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!!!

Hop on over to Farley's place and read some more Currentlys.

Pin It!


  1. I'm so glad you made time for yourself to rest and recharge. I think everyone needs a best teacher friend. Mine gives me energy and courage and for that, I am eternally grateful. I hope your 2016 brings you all the best!

  2. That sounds so great how you were so intentional with your break. We totally need the breaks to rejuvenate, I've definitely had some time to do that too!
    Happy new Year!

  3. I'm wishing you courage to face the new year, with the good or the hard times. Sounds like you have it under control though, so that's awesome! Best wishes in the new year!

  4. I agree that it is so necessary to give yourself permission to relax and rejuvenate. I have way too many colleagues who have lamented the past few days how much work they still need to do in order to be prepared for Monday (we are not allowed in our buildings except on school days). I left it all at school and took a break and I feel so relaxed and ready to jump into whatever 2016 holds in store for me. :)

  5. Love your word Alyce!! Courage is my word for the year too. It's been tough and I am going through so much, but I know we can make it! Happy New Year!!


  6. Great word, Alyce! Haven't the last two weeks flown by? I'm always amazed to see how much my Owlets have grown in such a short time. Enjoy these last few hours!!


I love reading your comments. Thanks for leaving one!
