I know that lately I have said that I will only write about happy things, positive things. My positive thing I wanted to write about today-confidence. I must admit, I have never exactly been the most confident person. I tend to want to blend into the background. I've never really been a person who pats myself on the back, to be confident in my abilities. But today I had an evaluation at work. While I do still need to work on some things, the evaluation was great, and really made me feel good. I felt like I can finally DO this teaching thing!! While it's tough, and I know I still need to improve in different areas, I feel like I can DO this. And if I can do this, I can do anything I set my mind to!!!

Focusing on the positive...

Hello my friends!

So, I have decided to focus on the positive from now on. No more negativity. No more feeling sorry for myself. I have begun to realize that if I want something, I have to go after it and get it-not complain about it!! So, I am going to do just that, and track my progress here!! :) Hope you can hang on for the ride with me!

First, one of my big goals is to get a driver's license. I came close last summer, actually taking the test-but I failed. For some reason, instead of just practicing more, and trying again, I haven't really been doing much about it. Until now. Here's my plan. On my next paycheck I will go and renew my permit. Then, now that Avi has graduated and we have more time to spend together, I will set up a schedule of times we go driving to practice. Then, once I am comfortable, I will take the test, hopefully pass, and get my license!!! :) This will get me one step closer to independence, and living my dream life!

Life as I currently know it...

Hey everyone-yes, I know that I haven't written in FOREVER, but that is because life has been very crazy!! Between Avi graduating, the holidays, and work, it's been a really stressful, crazy time. I have been a mixed bag of emotions lately-happy, mad, sad-but, all in all, life is pretty good. I have been trying to focus on the positive things; my amazing boyfriend, my wonderful family, my great friends, my awesome job, working out-but sometimes I just get overwhelmed and sad with everything. But I know that God has a plan, and everything is going to work out. It's just hard being patient!!! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season, and I hope that you can forgive me for not posting sooner!!
