A Belated Happy New Year

not phoning it in

Good people, I am truly hoping 2010 will be a less rocky, yet continually blessed, year for me and you. I received a letter from school informing me I will receive my special education certification in May. I passed the dreaded Praxis II exam that is required to complete the program I've been in since 2006. Good things come to those who wait, and do the work.

I'm also hoping that my personal life will be revived by me having the opportunity to tend to it with greater attention while applying life-learned lessons. Between working and going to school, I often had little energy or brain cells left to connect to my nearest and dearest, let alone, make time for them.

I'm excited to move forward and dream big about what can be possible. I started this blog as part of my new philosophy to thrive rather than just survive. So, look out 2010, here I come! I'm going to remind myself like I did in years past that I am blessed and that within me is the love I need to nurture myself and connect with others.

Good luck, good people. Keep on keeping on!

Congratulations on passing the PRAXIS II! I hope 2010 "brings it" in fierce fabulosity for you, Lelo and everyone else out there in the blogosphere...and the world.

I like your "Declaration of Blogdependence"... Congrats, Alan, on your exam... We don't have that one in NYC... I know the part about not having enough brain cells left to socialize... That state will return soon for me as the workweek starts again after 10 rejuvenating days off...

Congratulations! I know how this has been for you. Those 3 years I got my Master's while I was teaching and my son was in high school, I had no life other than that.

I'm looking forward to reading more of your blog!
