I don't like making New Years Resolutions I never take them seriously and never follow through with them. There are lots of things I would like to work on or improve both in my personal and professional life but resolutions never seem the right way to go about it.
Then, this week Mandy, Katherine and as I was writing this Laura, have decided to use One Little Word to guide them this year. What a smart way to challenge yourself and guide your thinking. This makes so much sense to me.
My little word is persevere.
Merriam-Webster defines persevere as "to persist in a state, enterprise, or undertaking in spite of counter influences, opposition, or discouragement"
I want to persevere in my quest to become healthier.
I want to persevere in my quest to do what is best for my students despite others opinions.
I want to persevere in my quest to recycle as much as I can making this planet a cleaner place.
I want to persevere in my quest to continue becoming a better teacher.
What Little Word are you going to use to guide you this year?
