Post-it Tuesday

You guys I didn’t miss posting this week for post-it Tuesday!! Yay me!!!

Here’s the latest post-it note I stuck onto two of the copy machines at work. I hope it’ll make at least one person smile and “let their light shine”

What is that you do to help you stay inspired or to keep your light shining onto others?

Busy week, busy life

This past week has been nonstop busy. Such is the life of a teacher though. We had Parent-Teacher conferences on Wed and Thurs. I started ahead of the game with a conference on Monday, which worked out in my favor not having to stay until 7pm last night.

This 3 day weekend, I’m spending my time with my most favorite person in the world…my Mr.! He got me a ticket to fly to NY (he’s there for work), so that we didn’t have to be apart on one of our(my) favorite days of the year. I promise I won’t get all lovey dovey on you, but I’m so excited I won’t be spending the Hallmark holiday of love all alone haha.
Anyway, being so busy with conferences and packing for my trip I forgot to take a pic of my post-it for Post-it Tuesday! But, I chose to write the following on a post-it: “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.”-Helen Keller

This quote couldn’t be more true to what’s been happening in my life lately. My best friend, whom I call my bestest, is embarking on a new journey in her life by starting up & building a business. And I have blindly, but graciously, offered to help her haha. I gave her my disclaimer that while I’m offering to help her, I truly know nothing about the “business/corporate” world, but I’m a natural leader and lifelong learner (teachers-it’s who we are). ūüėȬ† She reassured me as much as she probably could, and told me I didn’t need to know much, and that just knowing her and her mission is what will be most beneficial for her business. So, here I go…on another daring adventure!

Guess I’ll leave you with my latest ootd’s that I couldn’t post during the week & another favorite photo for Photo Friday! Have a lovely weekend.

Post-it Tuesday

I went through half of my day before realizing it’s TUESDAY!¬† Most people don’t really think about Tuesday.¬† Everyone dreads Monday, Wednesday is “hump day,”¬† Thursday is one more day closer to the weekend, and Friday is…well, FRIYAY!¬† Today I fell into the “same stuff, different day” kinda mood, but then I remembered I needed to take a few moments of my day to make somebody’s day better.

Have you ever watched that movie, Evan Almighty, with Steve Carell?¬† If so, then you may remember at the end of the movie the acronym for ARK.¬† If you haven’t watched it, I don’t want to spoil too much of the movie for you, but I will tell you what the acronym stood for in that movie. ARK=1 act of random kindness

That’s what post-it Tuesdays is all about people.¬† All it takes is one random act of kindness to change not only your mood, but someone else’s mood/day too. I challenge you to take a few moments next week and Post-it Tuesday!

Post It Tuesday

So today was my very first “Post It Tuesday.” I wanted to start Post-it Tuesdays to brighten up someone else’s day. All you need is a post-it, a pen and a few simple words of happiness, encouragement, inspiration, or even a quote. This simple random act can ultimately change someone else’s day around! Post-it notes are extremely easy to come by since I’m a teacher, but they’re fairly cheap at any store too. I’d like to invite you to join me next week for Post It Tuesday! Share with me what you wrote on your post-it note. Here are pics of my first two post-it notes.

I left this one on our music teachers computer after she left unexpectedly during the day.

I put this post-it in one of our staff bathrooms on the mirror.

Simple, right?! ūüėČ

And, of course I can’t leave without posting my #ootd

As the saying goes…

“Everything happens for a reason” OR “There’s a reason for everything”

I strongly believe in these sayings. There are times when I can’t seem to find the meaning or the reason why things/events happen in my life, but I also believe that I don’t always have to.¬† This winter storm hitting the north east is an event that is helping to keep my husband home for a few more days.¬† Prior to his arrival home from NY, he was told by his boss that he wouldn’t be able to get the week off even after it was approved.¬† So, there is my silver lining in the wake of this crazy storm (sorry to all those who are out there on that side of our country).

On another note, my journey for becoming a blogger & possibly a “style blogger” is starting to become more of a reality.¬† This past Christmas my husband bought me my first DSLR camera, perfect for beginner photographers; my Instagram account that I started last year of my daily #ootd is slowly but surely gaining more followers; and I finally took the 1st step to start my own blog.¬† See…everything happens for a reason!

Stay tuned for my first “Post It Tuesday” tomorrow!

Blessings x Love
