Tuesday is the day to share a “Slice of Life” with Two Writing Teachers. Check out the writers, readers and teachers here. Thanks to Stacey, Anna, Beth, Tara, Dana and Betsy for creating a place for us to work collaboratively.
Words are so important; how do I choose just one for 2015? I have lists of words with many scratched out and some circled. The next list has similar words including some very specific synonyms. Words scribbled in random order on post its abound! A great deal of perseverance as well as drafting, reading, drafting, and looking up even more definitions led me to my word for 2015.
Focus is defined as to concentrate on something in particular. Focus is defined as to bring into view.
- An example of focus is to put all of one’s energy into a science project.
- An example of focus is to adjust a microscope to better see a specimen.
2015 is full of promise. By choosing to “focus”, I will be prioritizing my time every day in order to be as efficient and effective as possible and yet have time to complete the tasks that are necessary as well as things that are on my “fun” list. Focus will allow me to set goals and strive to meet them in both my personal (soon to be grandma) and my work roles. Every day is a treasure and concentrating or focussing will allow me to reflect at the end of the day on my goals and actions!
One little word to
Center my life,
Using words to
Sustain my actions!
