A Moment to Reflect

A new feature of the blog! In addition to Moments in Meme and Funny Fridays, we'll start sharing some moments of reflection meant to inspire us to look inward to renew our spirits and freshen our outlook on the challenges we face. Great way to get conversation going with your own learners and to help ground them for the challenges they will face in your teaching environment. An introductory discussion about teamwork and personal commitment can be time well spent when you have built a course around collaborative exploration of your topic!
I will not die an unlived life.
I will not live in fear
of falling or catching fire.
I choose to inhabit my days,
to allow my living to open me,
to make me less afraid,
more accessible;
to loosen my heart
until it becomes a wing,
a torch, a promise.
I choose to risk my significance,
to live so that which came to me as seed
goes to the next as blossom,
and that which came to me as blossom,
goes on as fruit.

(Dawna Markova)
