With 2015 comes a new cohort of #INDEVOURS…my fifth to be exact. Like at the start of all things familiar yet new, I’m excited and nervous and full of anticipation. Where will this new group of students go – in the class, while on placement and beyond? What will they teach me? What impact will I have on them? I may have hopes and plans – but the answers to all of these are unknown.
It amazes me as I both look back and gaze ahead: past #INDEVOURS who reach out to me seemingly out of the blue, new #INDEVOURS wanting to figure this out. It’s a pretty awesome position to be in right about now.
Past cohorts challenged me to blog – to practice what I preach (if you will). Not that I don’t blog elsewhere and for others, but not about this class and these experiences. My own blog analysis would be abysmal right about now – but thanks to amazing cohorts to date, my toolbox is full, and this year is full of promise.
In short, where I guess this re-introduction to my blog is saying this: I’m learning (increasingly) how much of my life is an #INDEVOUR – I’m always on a path, taking in as much as I can and trying to always live up to my 3Es (encourage, empower, equip).
To all my #INDEVOURS – past, present and future – thanks for joining me on this path. Thanks for all you show and teach me, and thanks for the opportunity to show and teach you things too.
