As a lifetime Hoosier, these alerts are common; however, today is probably one of the most alarming storms we’ve endured in over a decade.  Aside from the atrocity of today’s weather, it’s evolved into a day of personal analysis, convictions, and reflections of the past and present.  I’ve spent most of the day perusing blogs from an admirable fleet of educators.  My mind is spinning.

I wonder…… 
  • why do we allow ourselves only one day a year for personal reflection
  • why do we establish lofty goals that are unattainable
  • why are we discerned with our past accomplishments
Rather than focusing on my mistakes and shortcomings from the past year, I reflected on my accomplishments- all driven by personal passion.  My first thoughts… what are my passions?
  • I love to learn
  • I love to think
  • I love to read
  • I love to tweet
  • I love to write/blog
  • I love to explore tech tools
It occurred to me that I’m not short on passion, I just haven’t reached my full potential.  What a great feeling!...............
