I am a wife, mother, teacher, friend, and worrier.
I keep forgetting to go to yoga. Today makes about 15 years in a row.
I wish I could run faster and farther. Running makes me feel amazing. It dissolves my insecurities and depression. I think if I could just run a little faster and a litter farther, I'd see some better health benefits.
I love sunny days. I really should live in a part of the country with better weather. One day I will have a home at the beach. Turquoise water, white sand, and sunny skies = perfection.
I sing the wrong lyrics to most of the songs from my childhood. My husband, who is eight years older than me, constantly corrects my mistakes. However, I still sing the wrong lyrics because they will always be "Werewolves of Thunder" and "Western Girls" rather than "Werewolves of London" and "West End Girls" to me.
I think my students are amazing! Many of the kids I work with have overcome some substantial hardships, yet they continue to face the world with a smile and fire which cannot be extinguished. They are inspirational.
I really want to go to Kansas City this weekend to purchase a special instrument made in Tanzania for my daughter to use as a prop in her country research project. However, the garage needs one more coat of paint before we can organize it.
I need to set some goals and achieve them. I've been in a bit of a low spot this year and have lost my ambition. I need to find it. Have you seen it? Maybe it's somewhere in my garage.
I should eat more vegetables. I love fruit and avoid a lot of unhealthy foods. However, I know I need more vegetables in my life. If only they tasted like berries.
I can sometimes jump to the worst conclusion. My brain goes straight to DANGER in so many situations. Life would be so much better if I was more optimistic.
I like helping people. Being helpful makes me feel incredibly happy. I truly believe my purpose is to help.
I make delicious food for the people I love. I feel wonderful when I can create something tasty and beautiful for other people to enjoy.
I always think about what I could have done to be a better person. Every night, I ask myself how I could have been a better teacher, listener, friend, mother, and wife. Many times I forget the following day because life is so overwhelming, but there are moments that stay with me. There are moments that make a lasting impression and help me grow into a better person.
