Staying Positive

It’s hard to keep a positive attitude when everything around you seems to be swirling chaos. The spring has always been a time for me to re-focus my efforts on seeing school work through to the end of the school year. But we’ve gone through so many different changes in 2016-17. I think I’ll have to stretch some of those creative boundaries I talked about in last week’s post and rework the schedule once again.

Hoops To Jump Through

This week has also presented several challenges. I’ve been fighting a cold since last Friday and while it’s better today, it was rough for a while. All I want to do today is sleep. But that’s not an option. To stay positive, I’ve been focusing on things I truly enjoy working on, like my novel. I also enjoy playing Mancala with our youngest daughter. These types of things provide ample reward for the time and effort I put into my work as a mom, a teacher an artist, and now a writer.

Picking Yourself Up

To encourage myself to keep going, I made a nifty poster in Canva. Feel free to download it for your own encouragement.
