I think this year I would like to take the opportunity (with a bit of necessary preparation) to assess how to successfully maximize resources and efforts and thrive in the fall semester like we never have before. In our continuing discussion on thriving in the work room after our meeting, my friend Jill commented that we would thriving amongst lavender, rosemary, and butterfly kisses.....I must admit - this does not seem utterly ridiculous to me! :)
I don't want to be bound by the fall semesters of the past. And I am not so naive, as to think that this semester will be any easier; however, I do feel that it can be different. So I'll bring in some lavender to calm, some rosemary to evoke confidence, and send out the appropriate equivalent of butterfly kisses to my co-workers in hopes of encouraging them to get beyond survival as well.
