Slice of Life Day 11: My Special Word




For my Slice of Life piece today, I am going to write about my Word of the Year. It is the word that I find that I need to use over and over and over. The word is flexibility. It seems I use that word in all woalks of my life. At home, I have to be flexible when dealing with my golden retriever, Dave. His schedule and my schedule do not always run on the same wave length. He wants to go out and I want to get some work done inside. He wants a treat and I am busy fixing supper. He wants to go to bed and I still have loads of work to do. I guess we both use flexibility on that one.

I use flexibility at work, too. It never fails that when I have my weekly schedule all set and it looks like everything is going to work smoothly, someone emails and wants to cancel or add another visit. When I have a professional develpment session all prepared, that's when for some reasong it gets cancelled.

For all those reasons, that is why I made flexibility my word of the year. Hopefully, by the end of the year I will be ready to choose another word because I have mastered this one!

I would like more flexibility in my body. These days it seems harder and harder to bend, please don't ask me to sit on the floor! When you have a pet you definitely need some flexibility. You are well on your way to mastering that word.

Flexibility is something we all need! I like this word a lot. Use it daily with my students - you need to be flexible today, use your flexible thinking - enjoy your year of being flexible.
