Did you ever have one of those moments?

Updated: Nov 13, 2018

Did you ever have one of those moments when something that has been confusing becomes crystal clear? While driving home from work last week, I was reflecting upon everything that had been done! I was tired, legs felt a little weak, eyes felt heavy and I began questioning why?

Why am I creating new stuff for units that would be just fine this year? Why am I taking on using robots in a coding class when I can just teach it using a website? Why am I blogging every week? Why do I get up early to workout? Why did I write a book? Why am I speaking at several conferences? Why did I become so involved in the midterm elections? Why did I take on the role of president of my local association? Why am I writing grants? Why did I become the site coordinator to deliver NEA PD to my district? Why, Why, Why, Why.........

Well, that is when it became crystal clear! All of these tasks are helping me grow and reach a greater, higher purpose. By giving so much of myself, I get personal growth in return. There is no fun or growth in doing the same thing year in and year out. These many hats I have picked to wear are shaping me in a way that is making me, a better me! For that, I am happy and grateful!

Have a great week!

Mike Ward!
