Yesterday I wrote about change. I was thinking about BIG life changes when I wrote that. But today I was thinking about something else…

You know that feeling you get when you suddenly have to change a plan you’ve had set for a while. For me I get a pit in my stomach knowing I need to figure out new plans. Not my favorite thing to happen… But when I am teaching in the classroom I am able to adapt VERY quickly. In the classroom I have no problem making sudden changes. I want to bring some of the calmness I have in the classroom into my everyday life.

When it comes to helping other people, I am the BEST. I love helping my students, giving friends advice, and helping cute old people in the store when they need directions. However, I am not as good with helping myself.

My goal for the rest of this week is… DRUM ROLL PLEASE… I want to take three deep breathes when something doesn’t go my way. I want to take a moment and think about the advice I would give a friend and ACTUALLY apply it. Sometimes I need to take a step back and realize it is a bad minute of the day. One bad minute doesn’t make a bad day.
