Tid BiT: Reflect to See How Far You've Come
Normally, while I walk the dog, I listen to Podcasts or books on OverDrive. Yesterday, however, I happened to remember all of the voice recordings that I have created and thought to myself, "I should listen to those."
As I scrolled through the long list of them (I typically record thoughts that I'm having while I drive or am walking/running) I realized that I started recording back in April of 2016, right before I started Burnedinteacher.com. I recorded all sorts of ideas. Some bad, some good. I listened to over a year's worth of voice recordings and was AMAZED!
What really struck me was how many of the ideas that I recorded, I actually followed through with! I have come a LONG way. While I've been sitting here, day after day, beating myself up about what I should have done or what I should have written or said, I was GROWING. I was CHANGING. I didn't even realize it until I took the time to reflect and give myself a little credit a whole year later.
