|Slicing every day in March!!
I don’t remember who used this pattern for writing a slice last week, but it was so inspiring that I decided to try it for today’s SOL. Here it goes!
I am very impatient. I have a hard time dealing with change and uncertainty.
I keep repeating the same scenarios over and over again. Especially the ones where I can’t change the outcome. I get stuck, like a needle on a record player, in the same moment.
I wish I could develop an exercise schedule that I can stick to. After a long day at school, the last thing I want to do is change out of my work clothes to go exercise for an hour. But, that is exactly what I should do. At least three times per week.
I love my husband and children to pieces. I am happiest when the five of us are together. I live for those moments.
I sing in the car on my way to work. When I’m happy. When I’m feeling grateful. Nothing can stop me! Well. My son can stop me because I can’t carry a tune to save my life. But, I don’t stop. I still sing.
I think everyone should be honest and give of 100% of themselves. Always. I am often disappointed when this doesn’t happen.
I really love to read and write. I would love to write a book. I have a lot to say. But have others already said everything there is to say?
I need to believe in myself. Not put myself down so much. Trust myself.
I should continue to write every day once the March SOL is over. I’m finding it a lot easier to sit down and write a slice this year than in years past. I’m not sure why, but I like how it feels!
I can play tennis pretty well, which never ceases to surprise me.
I like connecting with others online. Creating collaborative projects with wonderful educators whom I may never meet in person.
I make a big deal out of nothing, sometimes. I have to watch myself. Pick my battles. Stop and take a step back. Not be impulsive. Let go.
I always get down on myself. Something I should never do. Never talk bad about myself. Remember this every day.
Move the writing. Move the writer.
