It’s been a while since I have posted on my blog… chalk it up to the end of another school year, the beginning of summer, being too busy… you pick. Regardless of how busy I claim to be, I did want to take a minute and reflect upon some of my accomplishments over the last few weeks… all too often I sell myself short and feel as if it is beyond the realm of humility to share my successes so this is a very new thing for me. With that in mind, I will keep it short…
Accomplishment #1 – I finished the entire National Board Certification for Teachers submission process on June 11 with an assessment. Have no idea how I did, but the sheer fact that I made it through that process is quite gratifying. I will know the results in November but until then, I can relish in the fact that I did what I set out to do.
Accomplishment #2 – I ran my first 5K race ever just yesterday. I was so nervous about the whole experience up until the point that the officiator said “Go” and then a whole different me showed up. I ran my race and did so at a pretty good pace…. one that I was so happy with. I am really excited to keep training and to continue to learn and develop as a runner. What on earth was I so afraid of??
So there you have it… two accomplishments in my recent life that have helped me grow so much as a person… as always… one day and counting.
