My buddy (and Newbery Winner!) Cynthia Lord shared this quote on facebook recently.
The grace to be a beginner is always the best prayer for an artist. The beginner’s humility and openness lead to exploration. Exploration leads to accomplishment. All of it begins at the beginning, with the first small and scary step.
Lovely, eh?! Have you started any teaching-related resolutions? Remember it always takes humilty and openness. And grace for when we stumble.
We're gearing up for the official start of Girls Being Girls. I'm a tad nervous to take on one more thing, but pumped for a chance to pour into our girls in a way that will hopefully make an impact. Check out more here. And best wishes for your own new projects and goals.
