“There are moments in life that make you pause and reflect; moments that you know will be pivotal in how your story unfolds.”
As I read this opening sentence from my very first blog post on November 28, 2015, I am overcome with emotion. Never would I have guessed how pivotal that moment in time would be. Three years and four months later, I am celebrating my 100th blog post. This milestone holds incredible meaning for me because it represents so much.
✨The thousands of educators that are now a part of my professional learning network.
✨The amazing educators and authors from around the world that I'm proud to call friends.
✨The incredible conference venues where I’ve had the opportunity to share my passion.
✨The hundreds of leaps I’ve taken.
✨The fears I’ve conquered.
✨The courage and confidence I’ve gained.
On that pivotal day in November 2015, never would I have dreamed my “story unfolding” would lead to writing and publishing my own manifesto with Dave Burgess Consulting, Inc; a publishing company that I have the utmost of respect for. As I send this 100th blog post into the world tonight, I will take time to reflect, celebrate, and appreciate this amazing journey I’ve been on. March 29, 2019 will forever be etched in my mind as a milestone that represents the 100 ways my life has been impacted by that first blog post. Everyone that has supported, encouraged, and challenged me along the way...thank you. I am incredibly grateful for each one of you. Because of you, I am forever changed.
Special shout out to Brent Catlett for challenging me in December of 2016 to take my blog writing to the next level. Thank you for helping me realize the true power of reflection and how much I truly love to write.
Congrats, Trisha! My blog says I've written 359 posts, but I don't remember milestones. I should've been checking! Your post made me wonder... are all recent authors for DBC bloggers first? I remember being so scared about my first blog posts! (I still get nerves, but I also look at the posts through a different lens.) Many of the DBC authors I've met DO have blogs. I wonder how long they had them before they decided they'd try a book? Just wondering out loud... thank you for sharing this post that makes me think! Enjoy the rest of this journey we're on!!
