I've been thinking about doing this for awhile and figured now is as good a time as any (having been inspired by a few friends :). The past few months I have found myself thinking a lot about my life and reflecting on all the things that are great, good, ok and not really where I want them to be. I find myself reading a lot of other people's logs thinking "I wonder if I should put some of these thoughts in writing." So, here I am doing just that!
The mission is simple: be the best me I can be. I know, I know, CLICHE! The thing is over the past almost 3 (yikes!) years since A was born, I seem to have lost a bit of me. I've tried to be the best mom I can, the best teacher, (after a promotion) the best department chair, the best daughter, the best friend and then what's left over I save for me...which isn't much. After some reflection I have realized that if I spend a little time up front being the best me I can I will be much better at all those other things.
So here goes, I will post my "missions" as often as I can with hope of feedback, support, laughter and maybe even a little bit of ridicule...the more honesty the better!
You're mission, if you chose to accept it, is to join me on my mission! Welcome to the wild ride!!
