I was sitting with my family in church this weekend when the pastor began his sermon. I quickly realized he was talking to me because he was throwing darts at my existence. His question was simple- what is your story? But as he continued he began to provide examples that I could too closely relate to. He stated examples of potential stories. I was really good at watching TV, I was exceptional at supporting my favorite sports team, I had opportunity to truly make a difference but didn't, I had good intentions but... well you get the picture.
I felt like these were all on point in describing my life. I don't seize the day, I don't live up to my own expectations and I have a lot left to do in order to rock my own story.
I found this conversation powerful and cause for reflection. So tonight we are looking at What is Your Story?
Q1 What are you good/great at? What do you excel at in your life? #sstlap
Q2 What are you most proud of as a person? #sstlap
Q3 What are you most proud of as an educator? #sstlap
Q4 What are your biggest struggles in life to be as awesome as you can be? #sstlap
Q5 What are the obstacles as an educator to raising the roof of your greatness? #sstlap
Q6 What do you want your story as an educator to be? #sstlap
Q7 What do you want others to remember about you as a person- what is your story? #sstlap
Q8 Public Decree- What will you do daily, weekly, etc. to make 6&7 reality? #sstlap
My hope for this conversation is to not dwell on the negatives, but to identify areas we could work on and achieve our goals together. I hope this helps to inspire you to right your ship and achieve your dreams!
