Balance – That’s my one word resolution for 2012.

Last week on the Art of Education blog, my PLN friend Jessica Balsley wrote a post about how she is going to make her new year’s resolution in one word.  At first, I thought this was a little crazy, but as I read on, I decided to jump on board!  I’m finding the more I think about it, the more it fits into EVERY aspect of my life.

 

Balance –

It works for home and school,

for work and play,

for body and mind.

Balance –

Reminds me to keep myself in check,

to lift myself when I feel down,

to slow myself when I feel rushed.

Balance –

Reminds me to be creative and stick to the rules,

to teach the whole child,

to differentiate.

Balance-

Reminds me to take care of myself and those around me,

to spend time with each of my kids

those both in and out of school.

Balance –

Helps me to write less so I can read more,

reach out and allow others in,

keep on working hard and, gosh darnit PLAY!

Balance –

Ya, that’s my word!

What’s yours?
