This is my 100th blog post since beginning this project over a year ago.
I haven't always been faithful. There were long pauses between thoughts, especially last fall-winter. I was kind of busy trying to stay afloat in the sea of confusion that defined my job most of the year.
So, this summer I wanted to make some changes: more exercise, more mindful eating, more creative outlets to balance the lack of creativity that comes with teaching to state mandated standards.
I decided in July that I would give myself a challenge; write everyday. I don't mean just blog everyday, but to also get back into the habit of journalling regularly.
I find that I need the daily discipline as much as I crave the creative outlet. I've have a deep desire to get all of the thoughts crowding my brain, clamoring for attention down on a page. It's a driving need that helps me stay balanced and sane.
So far, so good. I have blogged religiously for the last 22 days and I have recorded my thoughts in my journal, too.
I found a cool app that allows me to write a quick summary of my day, and I am exercising more (walking and yoga), and eating less.
Life is good. But now comes the tricky part-maintaining all these disciplines when the school year begins.
Wish me luck!
