To blog is to bare ones soul, to have a conversation with the world; a conversation where anyone can become a critic and anyone can become an inspiration. I quickly realized you have to have thick skin to blog honestly. And yet, blogging has allowed me to create friendships and work relationships with people globally. Blogging has allowed me to send seeds of inspiration into the world and I have been lucky enough to be told that I have inspired others. We choose how we represent ourselves to the world, and I represent myself through blogging. I am not always right. I am not always coherent. I am not always positive even though I strive to be. But I am always honest. I want my blog to be a true reflection of the world I live in, the classroom I get to call home, and the incredible children that get to be part of my family. So through my blog I invite others in to our world. I invite others to see how a classroom can function with respect, love and honest communication. I invite others to be the change, to be positive, and to give those children a voice. I am no longer shouting to an empty room; blogging has given me an audience. I am no longer alone, there are others out there like me. What a relief.
This blog is in response to the Rockstar Meme on How Blogging Changed My World – thank you for the inspiration.
