Welcome to SOLSC 2014. Thanks to the crew of Two Writing Teachers for hosting this every week.
Last week I shared that my OLW for 2013 was MINDFUL and it served me well. This year I had a list: grace, open, and believe. BELIEVE first appeared on a copper bracelet I purchased in 2008 while waiting for to hear if I became a Nationally Board Certified Library Media Specialist. the bracelet said: “DREAM BELIEVE ACHIEVE.’ So the word has been with me a bit. I selected BELIEVE for a couple of different reasons. It’s the word for our school this year. You get to have two New Year celebrations when you work in a school. Here’s what you will find when you walk into our building:
For 2014, BELIEVE will help me to remember:
~that I can send my manuscript to agents.
~that I can begin finding ways to submit poems for publication.
~the beauty in capturing the unusual and incredible natural world through photography.
~what I can gain from deeply listening to students.
~the power of friendships and family.
~the importance of taking care of myself through exercise.
~what’s possible in the universe and the wonder of it all if you believe.
What’s your One Little Word?
