Thursday Thoughts #1: Beginnings

I am linking up with Wife of a Sailor and doing Thursday Thoughts on Beginnings:

Beginnings- they can sure be exciting yet scary. I like the feeling of new beginnings most of the time. With me being a person who hates change, sometimes beginnings really throw me for a loop. But as a military wife I have started to learn to deal with new beginning (and changes) and I am learning to roll with the punches.

Currently I have a new beginning starting. Seeing as I am a teacher, a new school year is about to start. I have been working all week in my room to prepare for the new school year. This is the first year that I felt prepared and ready to go by Tuesday night. I'm not quite ready for this beginning but such is life.

I have another new beginning. My son will be starting VPK on Monday. It's Florida's Free Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten. I can't believe he is old enough to start. That means after this year, he will be starting Kindergarten! How do I have a son who is old enough to be in school?? The nice thing is, Booger is SUPER excited to be starting VPK. It is held at the preschool he has been going to, so he knows the teachers and really likes it there. That of course makes the transition that much easier.

I guess my last new beginning is my weight loss journey that I started over the summer. I have always wanted to lose weight and feel my best, but of course pregnancy and other life issues kept getting in my way. Now with ZEAL I finally have the motivation I need to continue on my journey. I feel great, I don't have the cravings I used to have and I WANT to eat better. That point right there is the important one.

I feel like all three of my beginnings have been postive ones. I know not all are, but I think if you can find the silver lining and learn from your past, any beginning can be a good one. Beginnings can be exciting and scary, but they are a part of life.

What do you think about beginnings???


  1. When I was teaching I LOVED the beginning of the year! I hope your first day and weeks go well:)

  2. I use to think I was a pro at new beginnings, but I think as I get older they are a heck of a lot more scary.

  3. New beginnings are always tough but I know you will do amazing!

  4. You are so right, beginnings can be great but scary, especially when we see our kids growing before our eyes! Good luck with your beginnings this year!!

  5. Yay! What awesome beginnings are happening in your life! Thanks for linking up and joining me this week... hope you will next week, too.

  6. Hope the new school year goes well for you :-)
