I am also having a career crisis- is teaching what I want to do forever? If not, is it something I can do for the next couple of years, even? Is all the stress and unhappiness because I'm still only a second-year teacher and perhaps because I haven't found the right type of school? Or is it because this career is too tumultuous for me? Have I truly found my passion?
Those are my two biggest concerns moving into 2017 (as far as my one little word is concerned). Luckily, as far as my relationship goes, we are passionate about each other, and I'm so thankful. I know there are other avenues to explore with this word, like just being more passionate of a personal overall, or perhaps finding passion in all that I do, even if I don't enjoy it.
Many bloggers and non-bloggers alike participate in OLW. Here's a great podcast episode from Elise Gets Crafty about this topic where she interviews the creator, Ali Edwards.
My OLW for 2015 was embrace. I loved my experience with it then and I definitely think I embodied that word, so I can't wait to see what 2017 will bring.
What's your one little word for 2017?
