Is that much to ask? I guess it is, especially all at once. Since I’m not taking a class this semester, I’m trying to decide where to focus my time and energy. I think all of the things on my list have merit, it’s deciding which is the best use of my time that has me a little dizzy.
Several bloggers have chosen a word to focus on for the New Year. Last year I chose progress. It’s one of my constant words, but I had to go back and see what word I chose last January. Several of the items listed above are goals I’ll be working on this year and some will have to wait. This year my word is direction. I need to choose the best direction to focus on and choose a plan to get there.
Easy as pie? Is pie really easy? It's easy to eat, but not always easy to make. Excellence is easy to appreciate and enjoy, but getting there takes a while. Join me in my Pursuit In Excellence. It won't be quick , but it will be worth it!
For me excellence revolves around motherhood and grandmahood. It is central to my many interests which I use to help my children develop their talents and have fun.
I share my journey here, The Homemaking Cottage and Arizona Mama. Be sure to see what else is cooking!
