{positive commitments} #sol16

I debated writing today. I debated about what to write about today.

I did my usual pre-procrastination social media scroll.

Twitter. Instagram. Pinterest.

Ahhhh ... I linger as I scroll and smile.

"Yes. Oh, I like that one. Favorite that! Agreed.  I needed to hear that."

And, so, to continue on with my procrastination, I needed to share my love ...

And, thus, a tweet that led to writing this slice.

This last year I needed some positive reinforcements and to re-commitment to staying positive. Thus a Pinterest board full of positivity was created and I invited my biggest positive reinforcement team to join in the pinning: my Mom, and my friends and colleagues, Karen and Chris.  Together we add quotes, images, and powerful words to lift us when we need it and to stay strong in our roles as mothers, teachers, friends, colleagues, and writers!

I love checking in on the positive commitment pins they add each day.

A positive reminder that I am not alone and we can do BIG things together!

Thank you, Mom, Karen and Chris for being my biggest positive commitment cheerleaders!

You are the best! And this is for you ....

I believe in you ... Thank you for believing in me!


  1. What a wonderful post! You are blessed and they are blessed with you in their lives!

  2. I LOVE our Pinterest board. It's fun to throw a snarky poster in there every once in awhile (because I'm human!). I love that board for a little pick me up! XOXO

  3. Always searching for just the right quote to help all 3 of you manage your daily needs of reinforcement and positive thinking in this negative world. I enjoy reading what y'all have added to. These quotes mean as much to me as they do to you. Love ya, Mom

  4. If it makes you feel better, I "procrastinate" by scrolling through social media too! I keeping vowing to change this, but I get so many good ideas, even though I feel that it squanders my time away. Thanks for sharing your positivity board, Michelle. It sent good vibes my way and that certainly isn't a squandering of my time.

Slice of Life  hosted  at the Two Writing Teachers Join in and share a slice of your life.

March Slice of Life Story Challenge  hosted  at the  Two Writing Teachers Join us for a month of writing! After two days of writing struggles, I was slowing moving out of the writer's block quicksand that was sucking me into that stuck world of "I don't wanna write." I wrote a different post for today.  I was ready to press on with this challenge.  I did not fear the orange publish button.  I was going to just write. Then throughout the evening, I read the comments from my slice from yesterday: struggle . I had tears in my eyes.  I had goosebumps reading the comments other slicers, writers, teachers, mothers, friends wrote for little ole me and my writing struggles. Thank you for sharing in my
