Sunday Reflection Quote…Just 17 days into 2021 and the absorb/discard muscles have been flexing hard. I can sense “add” will be my challenge to bring to the forefront and sprinkle in. I’m reminded it takes a mindset of intentionality to deflect the energy suckers and power on. Here’s to having the courage and confidence to “add” and hold strong.
Sunday Reflection Quote…The calendar has flipped to the New Year, which naturally means reflecting back and projecting ahead. Nestled between the pages are nuggets to carry forward and others to leave behind. I’m reminded excuses are like belly buttons, everyone has one and distractions are distracting. I’ve let both get in the way and I still have unfinished business. Here’s to focusing for the New Year!
Sunday Reflection Quote…The push/pull distractions are plentiful. Seems every turn, there’s somethin’ somethin’ of another change, demand, or disappointment. All the strings are simultaneously tugged causing anguish of the heart and mind. It’s exhausting and I’ve been exhausted. I’m reminded what’s between my ears doesn’t necessarily match what’s in front of my eyes. What’s in front of me is the priority. Here’s to focusing on what I can control, staying strong, and planting my feet in reality.
Sunday Reflection Quote…The last few weeks have been no joke. Trying to navigate teaching in the uncharted shark infested waters of distance learning has turned my “just peachy” cart upside down. I have a tendency to be incredibly hard on myself and the self imposed pressure to perform has reared its gnarly head. The perfectionist trap sits there and waits, like a dense fog enveloped in shame. I’m reminded there’s a difference between excellence and perfection. I’m reminded this is all new and I’m not alone. I’m reminded it’s okay to fail. I’m reminded I am still strong. Here’s to forming new habits and striving for excellence!
Sunday Reflection Quote…I often say “stay in your lane,” not for others to mind their business, rather for my own preservation. It’s a mantra to mentally and emotionally remain focused. There’s so much divisiveness; the push-pull factors can be overpowering. With all the negativity and ugliness I can become anxious, downtrodden, or disheartened. I’m reminded I have one life; one path. I’m the one who determines what’s necessary to support my values, goals, and lifestyle. I don’t have to defend my decisions. Here’s to staying in my lane. Here’s to simplicity and contentment; the defining bumpers of my journey.
