Well here it is! I’m at school waiting for my kids to pour into my room for the first time. I love fresh starts. I love setting goals. I love To-Do lists. I’ve been spending a lot of time on Pinterest, listening to some of my favorite tunes, writing in my journal and making categorized lists of goals, ideas, worries and task items. I found several of these beauties on Pinterest that have stuck with me lately. I suppose this constitutes my list of goals for this school year.
My thoughts yesterday as I thought about meeting all 200 of my new “kids” Monday morning. Love them already. And I want to hold on to that love, rather than get sick of them, because my love for them DOES make a difference.
My thoughts today as I wake up early, meet 200 of my kids, go over my policies 6x in a row and come home with toes numb from pacing in heels all day.
For tomorrow and the next day and the next – when things get hard (TWSS) and I’m tired and sick and feel like I’m never gonna make a difference.
My Motto for this year – gonna pin this by my desk and on my mirror because it’s what I want – to be a legend.
The best piece of overall life advice for school year multitasking/type-A/control freak me – leaving my phone in the car and appreciating nature as we camped with our best friends this weekend was a nice reminder of the beauty of just LIVING.
Alright, Sunset Ridge Middle School. Let’s do this.
