I feel… like I have just started to scratch the surface on learning who I am and where I am going. I have such a long way to go.
I want… to keep myself focused on the bigger picture when things become challenging. This is an area that I am doing well in personally right now and I want to keep it that way.
I need… to spend more time being grateful for all that I have been given instead of letting the day to day cloud my mind.
I have… so many goals but also have an understanding that things have to work on in their own timing. As someone who struggles with patience this is an area that I have to remind myself of regularly.
I am thankful for… reminders that REAL is beautiful even if attention may be first given to the FLASHY. I appreciate honest, raw, and straight forward people- in life, in friendships, even in blogging. I don’t however, think those qualities always have to go hand in hand with disrespect, inappropriate, or degrading behavior.
I would like to… pack up the responses from my students about their bodies and spread that same love to everyone around me. I wish we all took the time to learn from the youth around us- they really are insightful.
I dream about… release, freedom, and renewal.
I prefer… to be undefined although often times I fall into the trap of defining myself.
I listen… when I am being spoken to but admit it isn’t always with my fullest attention.
I appreciate… genuine, thought provoking and tender conversations with others.
I know… that struggles are in place to help us appreciate and understand the concept of success, happiness, and optimism. I learn some of my strongest lessons from situations like these.
I remember… the life changing events that occurred on this date in 2001 and extend a moment of silence. There are no words.
