Each Tuesday the amazing bloggers at Two Writing Teachers host Slice of Life Stories (SOLS). This is where bloggers link up to share anything they would like to share about what is happening in their lives.
I have not written a Slice of Life post for some time now. I have mostly been sticking with Celebrate this Week posts on Ruth Ayres blog. But I came up with an idea for a SOLS post yesterday.
I was sitting in Starbucks all by myself when all of a sudden, Oprah spoke to me. Yes, Oprah! Here is what she said.
Wise words from Ms. O. Now I am not usually one to read into things like this, but my One Little Word for this year is REACH. It has been 6 months so I decided to do a mental check-in to see if I was living it.
It turns out that I was a little off track. I had lost focus of my personal and professional goals. I was slugging through the days just to get them done. I was struggling to balance daily household obligations, with 3 kids, with my own wants and needs. I wasn't reaching to connect more, to learn more, to live more. After doing some pondering and planning I think I am mentally back on track now. I need to be a bit more creative with fitting in my own goals with our crazy summer, but I am in the right frame of mind now.
I would encourage you to check-in. Are you living your OLW?
