Embrace the Shake
It's been almost 5 months since I've actually sat down and written for this blog. It's also been over 6 years since I put down my first post. Over the past 6 years I've shared a lot of information, but it's also been a place for me to reflect. Something I've missed the past year. It's interesting, the reason I'm writing this post is because of a video I watched recently. I'm a fan of TEDTalks and a colleague shared this one with me:
Phil Hansen: Embrace the Shake
Within the first 2 minutes, I realized that this talk made sense to me. I had difficulties in my new position and I gave up this blog. I gave up something that has connected me to so many others and so many experiences. I'm hoping that this year I can, as Phil says, embrace the shake. I am starting another new position. I'll continue in my role in Assistive Technology, but now I'll be (for the first time ever) in a resource special education position. I've never done anything but self-contained, and while this was something I never thought I would do, I'm looking forward to it. Whether it's the challenge or just the change I am going in with a lot of new ideas.
I don't know exactly how this will change this blog, but I do know that I am going to keep posting my ideas. I'll be sharing my thoughts and hopefully getting some feedback! Take a few minutes and watch Phil, maybe it will inspire you to embrace the shake
