It was really intriguing because there was more than one person posting about the same thing and I wondered what it was all about. If you, just like me, have no idea what I am talking about, check out Ali Edwards website.
Since this is my first year and many others have been doing this for years, I will definitely have some faults, but I welcome all critique.
So for 2017, my One Little Word is difference. I chose this word for many reasons. Being a teacher, my whole career is about differentiating and changing and making things different. As a parent, my daughter is always changing and every day I notice the difference between how she is growing up into a little person. After a few years of moving away and visiting and living in new areas, I see the difference in the person I was and I have become and the people I have known, the difference is how they treat me as a mom who lives far away from a single woman who was always around.
Mostly, I see the difference in myself as a person and how I look at life. It feels like through a totally difference lens.
I chose difference because I want to make a difference in lives. My students, my daughters, my families, others who I don’t know, and myself. I want there to be a difference in my life from last year to this year. I want to see the difference in myself after working extremely hard this year as a first time all subject 3rd grade teacher for a high level certificate program. I want to see the difference in how writing for an entire year vs. not at all takes me through this 2017. I want to see a difference in my deflating marriage.
