Making Time for Everything...

People often ask me how I find the time for all the projects I'm involved in.
For some reason, I've been thinking a lot about this today.
How do I make time for everything? 

Twitter chats.
Professional reading.
Online webinars, courses, online book groups, discussions and more.
My EdD research.
My family - my husband and I have three children, but only one of them is still at home with us.
Teaching.
More that I left out.

All of these activities keep me going.
And, every day I'm able to go to work  with a smile on my face
because my PLN is positive and upbeat.
We help each other gain perspective 
and confront the challenges we all face in our schools.

Sometimes being too close is a drawback.
Sometimes we need to step away in order to see what's right in front of us.
Because stepping away gives us a fresh view of our world.

But, this wasn't the way it has always been.
I was always good at focusing on the negative.
Not anymore.

Now, I go to school with a smile on my face. 
I feel happy to be with my students who are eager to learn. 
I try not to get too immersed in school politics that I can't control.
I stay focused on my mission: my students.

That's why I do all of these extra projects:
I get to remake myself every day.
And, this gives me tremendous joy.
