I decided this year that I would make a conscious effort to take teaching one day at a time. It's such a future-oriented, planning-ahead career. I so easily get wrapped up in looking ahead and thinking of what's coming next, that I often don't truly cherish the day, or even the moment I am in. I think this constant looking ahead has drained me in past years. It has caused me to over-think and over analyze things way too much. Although there is something to be said about planning and thinking ahead, it can get to a point of too much.
So this year...I'm taking it one day at a time. One day at a time to cherish. One day at a time to mold minds and hearts. One day at a time to impact 21 little ones with God's love.
