Reflections and Resolutions

tough

When a new year starts, it is naturally a time to reflect back on the year that has passed and look to the future. Last year was a good year. The jubilee and Olympics helped me to fall in love with Britain again. I started my training course and taught my first classes. It was also a time of big change: going from working part-time to a more-than-full-time course was a challenge for me and for my family.

I was looking at Ali Edwards‘s new online class One Little Word and was tempted to participate but I knew that I would have not nearly enough time to commit to it. The idea is that you spend the year focusing on one word that will help you get to where you want to be.

My word would be ‘tough’.

My first term of teaching has made me very aware that I rely far too much on the praise and validation of others. My skin is not nearly thick enough… yet. What I need in 2013 is to be tough. I need to toughen up. I need to tough it out. I need to be tough on those around me and on myself.

I find the allure of making a new list of resolutions impossible to resist so you can see my full list here.
