It’s that time of year again when we lay down our resolutions for the new year ahead. I went back to my resolutions from January 2018, and I have to say that I did well on all of them except one. The exercise program that I began early in the year dwindled out by the end of summer. Fall 2018 was not stellar for me with exercising. But the great news about not reaching my goal is that I can have a do- over. That is the beauty of new beginnings.
This morning I reset my Fitbit and downloaded a calorie counter app onto my phone. I’m actually quite excited about the plans I have for my personal fitness goals. Moreover, my professional goals have me looking forward to some exciting chapters as well.
Perhaps you have composed a list of resolutions for this new year… or at least for January?
Last year I sent out a list of possible resolutions for WATG newsletter followers and I decided that it would be alright to resurrect them, remembering that the beauty of a new year is the ability to have a do-over, either because something went well or because you fell short.
In my menu of resolutions that follow, I invite you to choose one, two, or…? All? This is an opportunity for all of us to focus on the needs of gifted children in our state.
If you had an opportunity to read my newsletter blog for December, you will perhaps understand gifted education as the “Tiny Tim” that needs your strength and resources. These are just a few ways in which you can make a difference in the lives of Wisconsin’s gifted children (Tiny Tim’s).
Wishing you and yours a peace-filled and gratifying new year. May ALL your resolutions become reality with your faithful perseverance.
