Slice of Life 8: Reflection

March 8, 2009

Slice of Life Challenge hosted by TwoWritingTeachers

Today, I read a SOL called Write Your Heart that Lynelle posted on her blog A Writer’s Life.  It sparked an idea for my Slice of Life today. (Thank you, Lynelle for your comment).

I have been reflecting so much more this week since I have begun the SOL Challenge.  I enjoy writing stories and my thoughts; I want to hold the moments for my family and students.  By nature, I am reflective.  I notice my surroundings and comment in my head.  This SOL challenge has pushed me to write those thoughts down more often.

Why is it that we become so busy and distracted to write?  Just like anything, planning is the key.  Making time in my day to write:   to capture my thoughts, to hold my wishes, to write what is important to me.  Isn’t that what we ask our students to do?
