2. “An Ex To Grind: A Novel”
I am about 7 chapters in and I am feeling………..
OMG , this woman is so annoying and DESPERATE, I want to just SMACK her in the face and tell her to WAKE UP! I hope she opens her eyes soon, or else mine will be CLOSED!
3. Dear Santa
I want to write a letter to Santa!! I always have my students do this, I think it is about time I do it, just like good ol’ times! I may even leave out milk and cookies this year!
4. Unmotivated but OK
Today I came home after work , took the dog out, made dinner and ate, and ate and ate. I lounged on the couch, reflected on my busy/hectic day and felt a bit guilty, BUT not guilty enough to do anything about it. I am pretty tired, and comfortable plopped on the couch. I GUESS I am still being productive: answering work email, planning activities my students need and will enjoy, checking personal email, reading blogs (for pleasure) blogging (my own word vomit)
I am ………tired and lazy and THAT IS OK!
5. Being wrong
Sometimes its hard to admit to yourself when you are wrong. However, you have to accept it, grow from it, learn from it, and ….MOVE ON.
Recently a situation that involved me occurred. I did SOME things right, I did some things wrong. I learned. This is making me stronger, and a better person. Unfortunately people may get hurt along the way, but I guess that is part of life.
I can admit to my mistakes. I have stopped making excuses for myself and am owning up to my strengths and weaknesses. What may seem right in the moment, may NOT always be right, but it is still my decision. I can either continue to do things or change them. Either grow, or stay.
Its difficult to see eye to eye with everyone. In fact it is impossible. However, hopefully I remember to “fight fair”, not use hurtful words, or try to manipulate others. That is how I feel I will be the best person I can be 🙂
Its too easy to get involved or want to help in situations that do not want your help. I have always had a bad habit of trying to fix and solve others problems, so that I did not have to face mine. As I have gotten better, I need to continue to grow and work on me. I can not help anyone that is unwilling to ask or accept help.
