Tuesday Tips

Tuesday, May 7, 2019

Today’s post is short and sweet because it’s a big day for me – I have 36 students taking the AP Spanish exam.  I will tell you more about it tomorrow!

I’m sure you do this, too – from time to time I will look back at my phone’s camera roll to see how I’ve been spending my time. I took a bit of time to do that this weekend and this is something I saved back in January.  

As many of my sweet readers know, 2018 ended in a very sad way for our family. We lost my Dad pretty suddenly.  He was diagnosed with cancer and was gone in seven weeks.  I know that some people lose loved ones much more suddenly, but it was still a shock for us.  I am trying to do the things above in honor of him and in honor of being the best version of myself that I can be.  This quote does not encompass everything, but it’s a good start.  I love quotes and collect them from time to time.  

I have recently taken some risks – not huge ones – but I have “put myself out there” as the expression goes. It may sound silly but I felt my Dad’s encouragement in doing so. He was always our biggest supporter. It made me feel good to think/know I was channeling his support.

I have done really well with going to bed early and getting up early. My Dad always said the morning was the best time of the day.

I have unfollowed negative people. I have shown gratitude.

I still have a ways to go with many of the above – but I plan to continue working on it.

How about you?  Does the above quote speak to you? 

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Great quote, Amy! I know how you feel about your dad, and I continue to think about you and your family. It is so hard. Your dad does continue to inspire you, and he always will.


    1. Thank you and I thought about you, too, as I was writing the post. With every new milestone it will always be a bit of emptiness.


  2. I love this quote. There’s much I need to work on…particularly with smiling more and gossip. *hides* But it’s been SO freeing to hide/block/unfollow negative stuff on FB (particularly political things, as I have zero tolerance for it anymore). I’m challenging myself to push harder with fitness. My goal for the year is to run 4 four 5Ks. Halfway done already!

    Sometimes life can be so busy and hard and unfair, it’s easy to lose sight of these things and what’s really important.

    Your dad would be/is proud of you, for sure. 🙂


    1. That’s a great way to put it – it is freeing to take negativity out. I will always love to laugh, make fun of, gossip – all in good fun and it’s part of our DNA! Our Dads were so funny together and I never heard my Dad laugh harder!
