B A A A A C K !!!

I'm back.
Back from our camping adventure!
Back from feeding the birds....
Back from chillin' on the dock....
Back in your face!

And back to school!  Sigh....oh well, I bought myself a new daily ZEN calendar to pump me full of daily inspiration. It really works. If you haven't tried it and need to add a little pep to your step, a little light to your day, a little positive to balance the negative try a ZEN calendar.

Then you too can have a work space like mine! See all of those little square pages above my computer monitor? And hanging off my bulletin board...
and stuck to the filing cabinet beside my desk...

Little pieces of paper that look like this...
 Makes you think huh?  If we have failed or struggled in our chosen careers we should be able to do an even better job...
 We are all a work in progress....never stop striving to fulfill your potential!
 Unfortunately, this is so....which is why I end up doing ten times as much work in my classroom as anyone else...telling someone how you want something done - well you just know they aren't going to do it the way you want it we do it ourselves!
Repeat after me...."If A is success in life...well SHUT my mouth!!"  hahahahah - LOVE this one!! I practise it daily!!
AMEN! I felt defeated last year, that's a fact. And by Jove it was bitter! Never again!
 Which is why I shop at Goodwill.....just sayin'....
 because failure is actually an opportunity...
oops, sorry, hope I didn't scare ya!! Nudge nudge wink wink!  I have seen this in action with my EAs and I tell ya it's true!
 I texted this one to Michael on a rough day and it really made a difference to his day :) It's one of my all time favorites.  It may be "cloudy" but that doesn't mean it's gonna rain!

 This one speaks to me about people with negative attitudes who give up without even trying because they just KNOW it ain't gonna work!
   There have been so many rungs missing over the past year I'm a freakin' kangaroo!
Tired?? What's that?!!
This one just about sums it all up don't ya think?!  Amen!!

If you've got the time you should come over and look at my FRIDGE!! It's totally covered!! You just might find that one little saying that'll brighten up your day and provide the motivation to keep on keepin' on!!


  1. Oh, Jane. My Zen calendar is your blog! :) xx
