I put a lot of pressure on myself as a parent, a professional, and an individual. I have always been this way and I don’t know why. I consider myself to be pretty driven. I ask a lot of questions. I strive to be a better person each day. I embrace my mistakes as learning opportunities, but I don’t always like the feeling I have when I make those mistakes. I like to take care of the people around me. I enjoy being a resource to others. My passion is reignited each time I share with others.
This year I put a lot of pressure on myself with #BLOG365. I stepped out of my comfort zone with networking and job prospects and a recent family move.
None of it I really needed to do and every once in a while I wonder why I am not more complacent, more comfortable with my status quo.
But, then I hear comments from teachers about how I have helped them, how I have helped to redefine their practice, or exposed them to something new or different and I realize that is why I do so much of what I do.
It’s this idea of servant leadership, of callings and not careers, of being part of something bigger than yourself.
So, I push on and I push myself and I embrace the pressure.
