My New School Year Resolutions

Ever since I was a little girl, the start of the school year was my new beginning.

I loved shopping for new school supplies. Sharp pencils, a new box of crayons, and a shiny lunchbox.  Along with the new supplies  came a fresh set of resolutions: to study harder, to try something new, or be open to new friendships.

I’ve never lost the habit of preparing for the new school year. I return to my classroom next week, and for the first time in years, I’m rested and ready to return. I’ve had a wonderful and relaxing summer. Now I need to keep all of the good mojo going when my feet hit the ground.

This summer  I learned that my creativity must be nurtured, and protected if I am to maintain inner balance. My resolutions for the new school year include:

– Do not allow work to occupy all of the free space in my mind.

– Be open to all experiences- positive and negative. I can learn, and write, about both.

– Write everyday, even if it’s just a few lines in my journal. Many of my short musings and ideas often turn into poems and blog         posts.

– Choose  happiness. Each and every day.
