2014 is coming closed. I have always tried to make positive choices: my OLW for this year. I always thought that choices typically lead to a positive result, but as I reflect on this past year my thinking has shifted. Choices this year has been about protecting my family and myself. The interesting part of this journey for me is that I learned more about myself than I could have ever imagined. Life wasn't always about teaching, being connected to social media, reading, or writing; actually I have logged more time watching television this year probably more than the past 10 years combined. And that was a choice. Interesting one that I never thought I would have made. I haven't read a complete book since school started nor have I written too many blog posts or any articles for CL. Although this felt different, I know that I have made the correct choices for me as well as my family. One important lesson I learned is that I am thankful when I have a choice to be made. I use to take those opportunities for granted. I learned choices do make a difference especially when I am asked to walk an unfamiliar path. Life is about choices and as 2014 comes to a close I would not have made any different choices, and I feel very blessed to have walked this path. I am still pondering my 2015 OLW, but I know I will deciding quickly. After all New Year's Eve is just around the corner. Thank you for the support of the Slice of Life community.
