For those of you who are part of the writing community on Twitter, first of all, Thank You!! Thank you for all your support that you give one another and being such an amazing example of what we can accomplish when we try to support one another instead of trying to tear each other down!
This past weekend’s #JustAddTea chat was all about celebrations, and while it did include how to use celebration in our works in progress (or WIPs, for those of you in the know), it began by emphasizing our own successes, both big and small.
This is a thing we should all do a little more.

Well hello there Rewinders! If you were here with us last week, you’ll know that I was busy fixating on a boy. And yes, definitely a boy, age notwithstanding. The thing is that I was fixating because he changed his behavior in a drastic way, and I didn’t understand. I wanted clarification of what I had done to cause such a drastic reaction in the first place, but I’m not worried about it… not the way I think he might be still.

Good afternoon Rewinders! I seem to have a pattern of good weeks followed by bad weeks. If that’s really true, this coming week should be phenomenal!
The short version: I am so awkward that I managed to show my crazy (as one of my co-workers would say) to the gentleman that took me out last weekend, and now I’m being ghosted.
Or at least I’m 97% certain that’s what has happened. I’ve been kind of fixating on how to fix it, which of course always makes it worse, right?

Good afternoon Rewinders! This week has been hectic but in a good way. I’m definitely thankful for my work friends and my kiddos this week. They have (even if they don’t realize it) given me ample validation that teaching is, in fact, my calling and that I am, in fact, relatively good at it.
If we work our way backwards, today (Sunday) has been all about the writing side of things. The Twitter Chat was about distractions, and thus it was also the theme for my weekly #ThinkBIGSundaywithMartha post.

Good evening Rewinders! This week everything is a little wonky. Again, I didn’t get the #WriterWednesday post up on time… or at all! Again, the weekly rewind is a little late, though I promise to post before the weekend is technically over. But, hopefully, after today is done I’ll be back on track. It’s been a busy weekend!
For that matter, it’s been a relatively busy week!!
As such, the soundtrack for this week’s rewind is full of trance and dubstep.

(This was supposed to post yesterday, so just pretend you’re reading it on Sunday)
Good afternoon Rewinders! I have to admit I’m in a fairly wonderful mood! While on the one hand, it seems imminent that I’m going to be forced to do things that aren’t what’s best because Some don’t see the value in my way, on the other (the one that is more important), I’m being constantly reaffirmed for my gifts. My success lately is in being able to identify that those positive affirmations of my talents are more important, and more true than the criticisms in my methods.
And that’s where today’s title comes in: Make a choice…
