brags, gratitudes, and desires...

Swiped, lovingly, from The Gal:

1. How have you totally impressed yourself, turned yourself on, pleased yourself, or otherwise created magic lately? That’s a BRAG. I had a moment with each of my classes this week--when the stars aligned and real learning was going on. Plus, I had a couple of students give me written notes thanking me for the school year. I've never had that happen.

2. For what are you thankful? What blessings are right here? What blessings are on their way and you want to give thanks in advance? And what currently-challenging situations in your life are you going to affirm as blessings in shit-brown wrappers? Those are GRATITUDES, or “grats” for short. I am thankful that my family is a tight unit and my dad's health scare confirms how close we are. We also had a good discussion about Living Wills and our requests.

3. And what are you craving? Yearning for? Realizing the world needs? What marching orders from the universe are written on your heart in the form of desires? From wanting “this headache to go away” to yearning “to know my divinity” to realizing “I want to be a mother”, no DESIRE is too big, too small, too “selfish” or too far-reaching. Vacation. There is so much wrapped up in that one word--a family visit, a chance to recharge, an opportunity to research and read, and all the junky tv and naps I can handle.

Let me know in the comments if you swipe it from me, so I can see what you have to say.

Vacation. That word does say it all... ;)

You had a real impact on your students! That means your influence will go on forever. You should be very proud of yourself. And the conversations you had with your family are very important.

PS If it makes you feel any better, you're not the only one who feels you need a vacation after your vacation.

I posted my replies...this was surprisingly hard.
