So here it is.... new month, new year. I usually get nostalgic and reflect on the previous year. But for whatever reason I have absolutely no interest in that this year. I am not sure why because life is really good today and little reflecting would only solidify that in my mind. But it is time to link up with Farley for Currently, a linky that I enjoy. I enjoy posting and reading. and reading. and reading. I identify with all the other teachers out there giving a quick glimpse into their life via this blog link up.
I have loved making goodies, present preparation, sewing, crafting, playing games, hanging out with my family (loved that special time with my Dad yesterday), cooking, time with my kiddos.... and today I am going to see some dear friends. Excited? Absolutely.
My mind has hit the frenzied mark for getting ready for January in Kindergarten. There are centers to print, cut, laminate and prepare! There are groups to evaluate and move and change and revamp. Seating to change.... you know, the list goes on!
Wanting.... to add more blankets for comfort, whether at rest time or whenever, pillows, stuffed animals and other comforting touches to make our classroom the best/homiest place it can be.
Needing.... a different kind of financial reality to make it all happen.
One little word: momentum. Okay, momentum can be good or bad. It's my one word because right now I have a positive momentum going in my life and I know that I am the one in charge of whether or not it stays this way. I know that when I focus on the good things in life, the good increases. I also know that it might this simple, but it's not always easy. I might have to do some work.... emotionally, mentally, intellectually. I want to increase the good stuff and keep building the momentum of becoming an excellent teacher and a decent human being. It's a lofty goal, but not so unrealistic as some years. What is your one little word for 2016?
