Day 100: Inspire(d)

As a new(er) teacher I am often inspired by colleagues I work with, people I meet at PD, and tweeters who I follow daily. 

Ideas and sparks ignite my learning and push me to try new things. This blog is a product of that above inspiration. It doesn’t take much, just a nudge or a supporting comment, it can happen indirectly too.

You never know who you will inspire, or what you may be inspired by. Inspiration is not something you can actively seek out, I believe it is a moment in time where the right people and right ideas come together.

I tried to look for inspiration to write about throughout this blog. I often found when I was trying to find it I was not successful. It was when I listened that I realized that everyday moments of creativity and wonder are all around. It sounds a little cheesy, but perhaps this blog has helped me become a better listener. 

I look forward to writing more in the future, just not everyday. Thank you for those who read and stayed with me throughout this journey. Your words of encouragement and discussions added meaningful purpose to this process.

Onto the next #100daychallenge!


Day 99: The Next Chapter

This blog was created to challenge myself to keep a routine for 100 days and to improve my writing in the process.

I feel like I need to have something planned for after this is done, but I’m not sure how I want to structure it. I am the type of person that can handle a day or two without a plan or something to do…after that I feel like I am wasting time. 

Recently I have been taking advantage of the Island Lake trail located in Orangeville, a beautiful 8+ kilometre trail that is filled with friendly locals and visitors…perhaps this is my next 100 day challenge? 

I know that I have to find something that can fit into the schedule. It’s easy for me to plan something now as I approach my upcoming vacation…perhaps a little break will allow me to find something that will fit, or it (whatever it is) will find me.
