Currently and Resolutions

It's the final count down!!! {Arrested Development anyone!?} I think I've started every post in December with "I can't believe 2012 is almost over!" but now I seriously can't believe it! What a joyous year it has been! Here's to hoping 2013 is even half as good!

I'm linking up with the wonderful Farley of Oh' Boy 4th Grade for her monthly party!

Isn't that font adorable!? It's from Cupcake! Go to her blog and snatch it up!

So let's just say thank goodness it's not 2013 yet because I've changed my OLW a million, a thousand, several times! I think I've finally decided on one that I'm going to stick with. Present. As in, live in the present. Enjoy what I have RIGHT NOW. When I see something that needs to get done, do it! When I start thinking about going back to work, STOP and enjoy my break in the present! It's going to be a fun word to focus on, I think :)

And now on to my resolutions! For this party, I'm linking up to my lovely buddy Jen from The Teacher's Cauldron!
Personal Resolution:
Be more brave! I feel like I miss out on a lot of things in my life because I'm too scared to try them. I am going to try really hard to be brave and try different things. What's the worst that can happen, right!?

Blogging Resolution:
Remember to do it for me. Sometimes I get so caught up in the whole blogging world that I forget why I even started blogging in the first place. I always wonder if people are going to like my posts or the products that I create. I am so hard on myself sometimes, so my plan is to remember to blog for me. If I enjoy it, that's what's important {not that y'all aren't important, but you know what I mean!}

I hope you all have a wonderful night celebrating 2012 and ringing in the new year! Cheers!

  1. I love your OLW and resolutions! Living in the present is so important so hard to do as a teacher when you are always thinking about what happened and what needs to happen next. I have recently had a lot of trouble blogging because my motivation is gone. I love your resolution to remember why you started doing it in the first place. That is exactly what I need to do. Happy New Year!

  7. Love your resolutions! I procrastinate because I am afraid I will not do it perfectly. I need to be braver and just do it....jump in and get started. I have a blog post written, but not posted because I'm not sure it is exactly the way I want it to be. I have about 5 more in my head waiting for me to post the one sitting on my desktop.

    I need to follow your lead.

    PS I was in the big city over the weekend and went to Target. I got some good deals to put away for next year's parent gift. Now to make sure I don't put it away in that safe spot I can never find.

  8. Oh my goodness. I need a manicure something fierce! I'm with you on that one! Happy New Year!

  9. Now I really want to go to Target and snatch up everything in the dollar section!

    Your OLW is a fantastic one! It's very important to stay present everyday.

    I'm with you on needing to be more brave. I'm a chicken.

  12. I am desperately needing a manicure too!! I love your owl and resolutions! I am definitely guilty of being hard on myself and getting stressed out about bloggy things and need to remind myself that I started this as a fun way to share ideas and collaborate with other teachers, and that's the way it should be! Happy New Year, friend!
