January OLW Thoughts about my Quest
I have always tried to reflect on my OLW at the end of the month. I lost that idea last year, but I want to try it again. I felt like it helped me focus on my OLW throughout the month. As January comes to a close and to be honest I am ready to put this month behind me. I am thankful for my quest as well as the lessons I learned from January.
January in Ohio is always unpredictable with the weather. Our weather has been seasonably mild, and we haven't had much snow. We sidetracked the huge blizzard that just rolled through. My quest for home this past month was slowing down in the evening and turning off school. Typically I would do my homework for the evening and then continue reading, tweeting, and writing about being a teacher. I decided I was going to try this month to turn off school earlier or better yet not have to do school every night. I assume this might sound a little crazy for a teacher to turn off school, but I needed to adjust, and I'm thankful I did. I learned that being "on" all the time was not working for me. I am thankful that my quest lead to a path that is more balanced. I'm anxious to continue into February...
