So, it’s been a while since I last made a blog post but these past few weeks have been some of the worst and best of my life and I have needed the time to concentrate on myself.
Well, I am back now and unfortunately this blog post is not one I am going to enjoy writing but it needs doing.
When I originally wrote my list back at the start of the year I fully thought that everything on my list was achievable. In many ways I was right, but there was one main aspect that I didn’t account for in achieving my list, and that was life.
It is true what they say that sometimes life gets in the way. All of our hopes and dreams are all plausible, however, we forget the little things when creating our dreams. This is exactly what I did.
As you will be aware I have spent this past 10 months training to become a qualified teacher. I entered into my PGCE year full of hope and excitement and although many people had told me this year would be a stressful year I wholly underestimated just how hard it would be.
One of my goals on my list was to achieve a Good or Outstanding in my PGCE year, however this is one of my goals that I did not achieve. I am not ashamed to admit that I only just passed my PGCE year as I had some many stressful moments that truly tested me and therefore I am proud that I did indeed pass, regardless of what I passed with.
My list of 17 things to do in 2017 was a list that I created to find myself. I did originally set out of complete them all but not meeting this target actually made me realise that even though I’ve not completed it this goal has helped me to find myself.
Failing a goal should not define you, after all fail stands for first attempt in learning and I know that I have found the best job of me that will help to renew my faith in my teaching.
