|Thinking of starting early morning yoga...suggestions?|
This week was a busy, jam-packed school week. Meetings and professional development classes took over all after/before school prep and down time. I am happy to say that it is finally the weekend. As I got through each day, I was reminded just how important it is to be a balanced individual. In this busy life, it is of utmost importance that we stay well-rounded and focused. Focused on the most important things. Those aspects of life for me are my family, my work, and my health.
Family will always come first. No matter what. My husband, my sister, mom and dad...and Brookie, of course, are the most important people in my everyday life. They are there for me and I in turn, want/need to be my best self in order to be there for them. Family. My number one. Always.
My work is also a major aspect of who I am. It is what challenges me and gives me importance in this ever changing, busy world. The work that I embark upon each day with young children, makes me who I am. I strive to be the best teacher and role-model that I can be for the good of those I am guiding and teaching day in and day out.
My health and well-being is also important to me. I feel that it is so necessary to take the time to develop a routine; a time to walk away from the stresses, in order to take part in activities that are enjoyable and rejuvenating. For me, a date night with the Mr., a quick coffee run, visit with Mom, dinner/night out with friends, and/or family gatherings are all things that bring me back. Back to my happy place. I guess you can call it my state of harmony. A state of mind and body that enables me to be full and prepared to give to those I love most.
This weekend I am taking the time to come back, to let go, and to balance. I challenge you to do the same. Keep smiling. xo
