Couple Quotes

I am not one to really pay much attention to horoscopes. However, I came across mine today and after yesterdays post, I just had to share it:


"You could gain professional recognition today, if you apply yourself. You're in the right mind space for hard work and accomplishment."

In the midst of a conversation with a friend the other day over work, she had made the comment that a lot of people we work with come to work, do the work, and then leave... no strings attached. Then she proceeded to throw me a compliment, saying that I go above and beyond what is expected of me at work, not for personal recognition, but for others ... especially the students. Just to hear her say this made me smile and I was appreciative of the compliment.



I don't usually like to post in a negative attitude, so I am turning things around today! A few days ago I found this quote in my Dove dark chocolate wrapper:


"Be good to yourself today."


... we should be good to ourselves everyday.


Have a wonderful Thursday, y'all!

What sign are you? I have to know in case this is mine too LOL

(ie: last post)I agree with you on the running (biking/swimming) it always makes me feel better! I usually say to myself you have to options 1) Stay inside and get all crazy/feel sorry for yourself or 2) Get out and do SOMETHING with the possibility of feeling just a little bit better.

Good for you for keeping a positive attitude!

Jess said...

I'm sure your students are lucky to have you!

That's what I tell my mothers who feel guilty about working out, "Be good to yourself."

Great post!

It's nice to get a little recognition once in a while, even if that's not the reason we do the things we do.

Happy Thursday to you too!

yea i've been having one of those weeks to. it's nice to do something positive to turn your mood around. that happened to me yesterday. a client wanted something changed, and it required no intervention on my part! amazing. i never expected that.

Amen to that! We face enough stress in life already without being hard on ourselves. And it's so nice to be recognized. I'm sure you deserve every word of that compliment.

I love the little quotes on the Dove wrappers! And you're right - we should be good to ourselves everyday.

What great quotes (and nothing better than getting kudos from a co-worker!)

I love reading your blog because you're always so positive...even when you had the river rising at you, I was completely impressed with how your blog posts were optimistic.

I never understand those teachers who work to the contract...and go home. That's not why I became a teacher. It's certainly not how I've stayed at it for almost 20 years...

Michelle said...

Amen sista!!!

And I am glad you got such positive feedback at work!!! I am sure it meant a lot to you!

kelsalynn said...

I agree w/ the second quote for sure! And we could all be reminded once in a while.

Question: How do I add the blog roll that you have on the left side of your page to show when pages have been updated?

Thanks! Liz
