Who Am I as a Communicator?
The two people that answered the survey questions are very close to me and always tell me the truth, even if it hurts. I was not surprised that they felt I was empathetic, but needed to protect my heart from hurt more than I do now. Both evaluations proved to show that I have a balance, but need to have more confidence in myself.
The two insights I'd like to share are:
1. Be the lion in the mirror. Have the courage to speak to others, even if it makes you step out of your comfort zone.
2. Never become complacent just because you receive accolades from accomplishments. Look to the stars and, as the Buddha has said, "Be the light upon your own path." But as early childhood professionals, I will go a step further and say, be a light upon the path of the children and families you interact with. Communicate to the best of your ability. Find workshops that will enhance your skills. But love yourself enough to see your nobility in order to share it with others.
