New Years Reflections
I hope all school counselors are doing lots of self-care over the winter vacation. I know I have loved having time for long walks. My life lesson of 2014 was the take away from the tragic accident at our school, which resulted in the sudden loss of a parent. Since that day last February I have reminded myself every single day, live this day well because you don't know if you will have a tomorrow. It really is a new mindset for someone like me who spent way too much time worrying and being anxious about tomorrow. I did write a to do list for 2015. It will serve to remind me of my priorities like doing more yoga, going on a trip, taking time to enjoy nature. The job of a school counselor can become consuming. Find ways to nourish your own spirit. I am looking forward to getting some additional ideas from a new book I just heard about, "A search for Health, Happiness and a Full Night's Sleep." Enjoy the rest of your well deserved break!
