January will not win

My new philosophy to break the January blues is to get excited every morning about one thing I'm really excited to teach. Every moment in the morning when I start to think about all the little things that are going to stress me out during the day I force myself to change my thoughts and force on that one lesson I am going to rock that day.

It worked yesterday.

I finished the day with an extra amount of energy and purpose. I loved my job. I loved my kids. It was a beautiful, beautiful day.

I woke up this morning determined to do the same thing. Every time my mind slipped to all that stress I forced myself to think about my interactive writing lesson. I pulled my car into the parking lot, excited and energized. I entered the building with excitement and energy.

Then I went immediately to a meeting.

I am now planning on moving to Australia.

But my plan worked for one day, so perhaps it will work again tomorrow.

I will not give up on this.

January will not win.
