Hello everyone.  I hope all is well with you. I’m back today with another Slice of Life Post. I had a busy night last night. My oldest had his Christmas concert and the whole family went to see him sing. It was amazing. He stood in the front row and sang his little heart out. I am proud of the young man he is becoming.

Therefore, my Slice of Life Post is short today. I find this meme motivating. I have a thing for water whether it’s a river, a lake, or the ocean. I love to be near it. This meme is perfect for me because of my love for water, and the belief that it’s the day to day habits that pave the way to our goals. I’ll leave you to contemplate this:


Thanks for stopping by today. I hope this meme was as motivating for you as it was for me. If you’d like to read other Slice of Life Posts click here.

      I agree, Adrienne. I sometimes focus on the big picture too much and get overwhelmed. When I focus on my daily goal toward the bigger goal, I feel less stressed. Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate it! I hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. I’ve pulled this quote out for my students when the task seems a bit overwhelming. We’ve talked it over a couple of time and it just makes sense for my 8th grader, who are water flowing with determination! That’s for sharing this slice with us! 🙂

  4. Yes, persistence is key. This is something I’m trying to remember. Happy Thanksgiving, Lisa!
