This is a record of my journey as I work to better my career, relationships, physical health, mental health, and personal life in general. I have conquered depression, mastered my relationship, and overcome so many obstacles….sort of. I still get sad sometimes and I still learn new things about my relationship. I still find obstacles to overcome. But I keep pushing and keep trying and keep learning. My feelings are not unique – everyone gets depressed, stressed, scared, and confused. Everyone struggles to figure out their “purpose” and what they want to do with their life. Everyone strives for a healthy relationship and wishes for a healthier self.
This blog actually has 2 purposes. One is to help others see at least one of the paths they can take to better their career, community, education, relationship, or self. My hope is that I can inspire others to be better. My wish is that others offer their input on my posts so I can gain new insights and gain different perspectives.
The second purpose is to help me think through things. One of my top 5 strengths is Intellection, which means I’m a deep thinker. Writing (typing) out my thoughts like this helps me reflect on them and deepen them further. Most of my posts get re-read and edited more than once as I play with an idea and think it through more and more.
My posts may seem all over the place, but really they are all about life. Some days I’m excited about a new recipe I tried and want to share with you. Some days I’ll have a random epiphany or “ah-ha moment” that I wish to write down. Lately, I’ve been very focused on job-related subjects, so I have been doing more research and typing up with I learn and work through so I can go back and read them later, but also provide those interested in teaching some ideas and resources. My hope is that I can get feedback from concerned community members, parents, and other teachers on what I’m doing in the classroom.
