Happy New Year!

Amazing silhouette of man jumping at sunset toward 2014On this eve of the New Year, I tend to reflect on all of the things that really mattered this past year.  In my work with you – as consultant, coach, mentor, and teacher – what got my passions fueled? Who inspired me each day? What motivated me? Where did I find the answers? How did I ask the questions? Most importantly, did I make a positive difference?

On this eve of the New Year I have, for you, two gifts.

One inspires me and keeps me focused on the things that matter in the lives of the youngest among us; it is this:

“If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, the excitement, and the mystery of the world we live in.”  Rachel Carlson

In the lives of your children, are you this adult?

My second gift to you is one that has inspired and motivated me for years.  Each morning I wake up to an uplifting Notes from the Universe email message, and this gets my juices flowing for the day at hand.  The messages are whimsical, witty, so true, and always just what I need to hear. So, enjoy! Open your mind and heart to some totally unique thoughts at www.tut.com.

May 2014 bring you much happiness, good health, and great successes! Thank you for being a part of my life.

    Happy New Year to you too!
    I read your monthly posts, and they so often relate to something I am working on in my preschool classroom. Thank you so much for this resource!
