Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 12

I started the day with a full schedule... however... I had many students not show up.  Rather than being bitter that I had things scheduled and I will now lose out on the money, I am grateful.  I am so tired from  our whirl wind trip to Utah.  It's nice to get a little break.… Continue reading Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 12

Healthy, Wealthy, and Wise… in Progress

I am working on "wealth."  Health seems to be ever elusive.  I do know that it's all in my choices.  I was all set to eat more salads and then the Romaine lettuce scare took all the lettuce and pre-chopped salads out of the stores.  It makes it real hard to eat a salad a… Continue reading Healthy, Wealthy, and Wise… in Progress

Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 11

Wow!  Long weekend! Things I am grateful for before I tumble into bed... ... we made it home safe after 13.5 hours of driving, icy, crazy drivers, fog, etc. ... my bed!  I forgot my pillow and I didn't sleep well on the hotel mattress and nasty pillow.  I am so glad to be home,… Continue reading Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 11

Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 9 and Day 10

Sometimes I am not home where all my pictures are to make a post about one of the shows I have been working on (today is a good example of this problem, but I… Continue reading Devising Creativity – Creating from Scratch in High School Theatre

Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 8

I am coming to realize that a person really only has two choices in life - to cultivate an attitude of gratitude and a giving spirit or an attitude of bitterness and arrogance. I am discovering that a grateful person is a happy person, no matter what their life circumstances may be. I am discovering… Continue reading Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 8

Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 7

What a cool thought... gratitude is the memory of the heart.  If it's true, we all should work on creating more memories of the heart.  Today I am grateful for... ... a job I love to do.  I love the kids I work with, the co-workers I mix it up with, the creativity involved, ALL… Continue reading Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 7

Lacking in Progress

Don't I know it!  I was sick last week... a cold.  Said cold came with a fever and chills.  I really wasn't interest in making food, but I did.  It wasn't all the best choices, but hey, I tried. Monday I ate some of the left over black bean soup that is more like dip… Continue reading Lacking in Progress
