With all that in mind, I'm heading into the coming week with a goal. I'm going to focus only on the things that I can control - my kids, my planning, my classroom - and let the chips fall as they may with everything else. Those other things might affect me, but worrying about what will happen serves no purpose. This morning my aim is to get my house sorted - all the laundry done, the floors washed etc. - and have a fridge full of healthy food to get me through the school week. That means this girl has to get off the couch asap!
I went through my Pinterest boards to find a quote to motivate me (and maybe you, too!) to relax and stress less this week, and although I have lot of beautiful images with meaningful words it was this one that I thought was the best:
Apparently it's a Polish proverb! Let me know if you have any sure-fire relaxation methods - I'm up for some new ideas. :)
Here's to a great week with our little monkeys! :)
