Sometimes you swing, and you miss. Is it the end of the world? Absolutely not! What's important is you were willing to step up to the plate and try!
I just realized the pictures from the post last Tuesday appear as big, empty, less than exciting boxes. Definitely NOT the look I was going for.
Do I need to fix it? Yes!
Am I frustrated I let it sit like that for a week? You bet. (As a perfectionist, you get used to being frustrated with yourself!)
Is this a terrible mistake? Not even close!
This is simply I tried something new, and it didn't work quite right. It's a chance for me to learn and grow. This is the mindset I want my students to adopt. Mistakes just show I'm trying.
We're not going to hit a home run every time we're at the plate. No one does! It's important that we're willing to step up to the plate, face the pitch, and give it our best shot!
Off to fix some pictures....
** UPDATE 8/15/18 - Well, I got distracted after writing the above post (story of life at the beginning of the school year!), and never fixed the pictures. I'm happy to report, they are fixed now!
