Things I know to be true...

I've been in a rut you guys. I've been letting a lot of things get to me. I feel myself shifting in reverse, back into the person I was at my old school. A person that doesn't feel like she's good at her job. A person who gossips. A person who isn't happy.

Those feelings are seeping into other areas of my life. So I decided to tell them to STOP! And make a list of things that are true that are POSITIVE:

Here goes:

  • I'm a strong teacher. My students are growing into readers and lovers of learning. I've taken a student from another class and everyone is surprised to see his bright and sweet side. I've done this for a few years now and need to stop letting people make me doubt myself. 
  • My family is awesome. It's completely dorky, but I'm super excited that they are who I am watching the Super Bowl with. It's going to be a blast. 
  • J is wonderful. I need to show him I appreciate him more, because when I think of my life before him, I can't even remember that person. 
  • I have great friends. Not that many, but the ones that I have are the best. I'm definitely going to plan time with them every week. 
I need to remember this quote:

So true. Any advice out there, blog friends? Have a wonderful Sunday!


  1. I think you nailed it! At times when I find myself that way, I need to step back and remember "to thine own self be true" and to let go of what I can't control. xoxo

  2. That's the secret, I think. Have a few, good friends and love the few you spend time with the most. We're not all meant to be the same, and that's okay. :)
