Sunday Reflection Quote…Sometimes situations slowly roll in like a relentless fog; blurring positivity of the present. This week I caught myself feeling frustrated regarding circumstances I have no control over. I caught myself feeling disappointed due to internalized expectations. I tasted hints of bitterness and felt my shell start to harden. I’m reminded that’s not what I’m about. Here’s to rebuking the fog and resetting my essence.

Sunday Reflection Quote…The last two weeks racked up to be a doozy. End of quarter grading, multiple meetings, reports, data analysis, safety drills, duty, and deflating moments drained my tank. I’m reminded self care is absolutely essential. Here’s to having inner peace doing the best I can with the time I have. Besides, thin peanut butter? Why bother. 😉

Sunday Reflection Quote…Life, longevity, and legacy have been lingering on my palate. I’m realizing more and more how short life truly is. One’s just peachy “normal” can be broadsided leaving a trail of disbelief or devastation. I’m reminded to savor the moment, to buy the ticket, and to speak up when necessary. Here’s to making it count; making memories.

Sunday Reflection Quote…This week I was reminded saying “no” is not only allowed, but healthy. Carrying guilt or assumed disappointment is such an energy drain. It is not reasonable to be all things to all people. However, it is reasonable to take care of myself and prioritize time as needed. I’m still the same person. Here’s to continuing to maintain balance and caring for myself!

Sunday Quote, 9/22/19

Sunday Reflection Quote…The compare/contrast brain raised its gnarly head again. I find myself questioning multiple facets in the professional, personal, and physical realms. What a fruitless, viscous cycle. Thankfully, I’ve become much better at giving those thoughts a nod, then a swift kick to the curb. I’m reminded I’ve worked incredibly hard to be who and where I am. There’s nothing wrong with having confidence, being choosy, and maintaining authenticity. Here’s to “being that self!” #sunday #reflection #quote #sorenkierkegaard #beyourself #authentic #bechoosy #onelife #simplicity #happiness #contentment #wellness #confidence #goodenough #acceptance #enjoythejourney #myownstory #keeponkeepingon

Sunday Quote, 9/8/19

Sunday Reflection Quote…My over thinking mind and anxiety belly catapulted into overdrive this week. The core of who I am as an educator and essence of my being was questioned and challenged not once, but thrice. Sometimes difficult situations barge through the door, but it doesn’t mean it has to take up residency in my heart and mind. Here’s to having confidence in my abilities and the resolve to remain strong. Let it go and chin up!

Sunday Quote, 8/12/19

Sunday Reflection Quote (Yes, on Monday)…I closed out the last week of summer break with 54 holes of competition and commenced 22 years in education today. For me, it is essential to have goals and challenge myself with stretch experiences. At the same time, expectations (too much too soon) without laying down the groundwork can lead to disappointment. I’m reminded life is sweetened by risk, but responsive mindset is key. Zooming too far can magnify blind spots resulting in tunnel vision. Here’s to maintaining a positive attitude when facing challenges and keeping my eye on the prize.

Sunday Quote, 8/4/19

Sunday Reflection Quote…Success perches on a continuum. For some it means getting out of bed, keeping an addiction at bay, or putting food on the table. For others it is a big job title, the bottom line, or square footage. For me, success is simply health and happiness peppered with fond memories and stretch experiences. I’m more successful now than I’ve been in years. Maintaining balance and boundaries has been key. I no longer feel compelled to give the over used 110%. For who? For what? Some days 75-100% is simply good enough! Here’s to celebrating the small efforts; efforts consistently repeated yielding the juiciest fruit.
