January's That's What She Said quote: Don't Stumble Over Something Behind You

If there’s any phrase I should have tattooed to my forehead these days, it’s “Don’t stumble over something behind you.” As I head into the New Year, putting 2014 and all its many nightmares behind me is the one resolution I intend to keep. I’d be foolish to say I’m over it and that there is no more hurt to be felt, no more challenges to face, no more stress to overcome, but I’m committed to looking forward to hope, healing and a much more balanced life that is me being me. The one thing I most definitely realized over the past several months is that I haven’t been able to be myself in a very long time. And that’s something I’d like to change.

I will no longer stumble over the fear that comes from wondering what others think of my actions, or how I dress, or what I say, or if I’m cool enough/pretty enough/funny enough/etc. the list goes on and on. I’m looking forward and I’m me. I will no longer stumble over what ifs, whys or if only. I’m looking forward with a “What’s next?” I will no longer punish myself for mistakes I made, cues I missed or moments where I fell short as a wife, mother, friend, woman, daughter, you name it. I’m looking forward with a “You did the best you could with the information that you had. Forgive yourself and be better.”

Progress means learning from the past, not dwelling on it. I can look back now with fresh eyes, remember what happened, and embrace the blessing that is being in a better place today. I know without a shadow of a doubt that I don’t want to go back to what was, even when I think about the good times and the happy moments. So if I’m confident that I’m where I’m supposed to be, there’s no need to stumble or dwell on where I used to be. Each day I put one foot in front of the other and move forward. If I look back, it’s only to see how far I’ve come.

      Everyone should pay at least 10% federal income tax. PERIOD. Warren Buffets pays 14% as Capital Gains Tax. But if the guy makes 50 million he is still supposed to pay $7,000,000.00 in federal taxes if he doesn’t fight it. $7 Million is a lot of taxesSo both you and Mr. Buffet are at best playing word games when you switch between tax rate and tax dollars in the same breath. Pick one and stick to it.BTW – Berkshire Hathaway is still fighting a $ 1.2 Billion Federal Tax bill for the 2002 through 2004 tax periods. So he speaks with forked tongue at best…

      Constantly send and reenforce the message “If you work hard, you can do this.” Students need to believe they have what it takes to be successful in order to even attempt to study or learn material. I explicitly teach my belief that the brain is like a muscle – if you work out you get stronger – if you stick with something difficult, you will understand it better in the end. I teach lessons on role models who showed resilience and I cover the classroom in quotes that underscore the importance of working hard. However, it is also important to teach students the difference between trying hard and effective effort.
