small decision : : big change























a couple of you seemed quite curious about what my "big" decisions were that made such a change for this year. the truth is they are not big decisions at all. they are two very small decisions (one that was hardly a decision... just fate really) that made a very big change for me this year.

first decision: i'm not working. not really. i am still a substitute at the montessori, but more of an emergency substitute. i won't be in there very often. just a little here and there.

second "decision"/fate: all of my kids will be going to the same school this year. the only reason this can even be considered a decision at all is because we were considering switching maiko to another school for 6-8th grade. but he decided to stay at elementary for 6th and then home school for 7th and 8th, then go to high school. which could still change, but right now is what we are planning for.

as you can imagine, these two things combined mean i get a lot more time to myself.
my goals for this next year are simple:
i want to accomplish some of the projects i have been planning over the last few years.
(notice i say "some of"... there are quite a lot, and i am trying to be realistic.)
i want to improve my health and well being with regular exercise and meditation.
and i want to spend time on my own personal development.

Personal development covers activities that improve awareness and identity, develop talents and potential, build human capital and facilitate employability, enhance quality of life and contribute to the realization of dreams and aspirations.


so basically, my goals are to catch up and enjoy life, and i am going to try to keep it that simple.

I remember like if it wasn't not long ago when our kids would have the whole living room floor covered with lego toys and other toys. I would love to be back in time...they are all grown now. That photo brought memories. Wishing everyone a wonderful Autumn!
