My Brain Hurts!

Today was one of those days that made my brain hurt.  Don’t worry, though, it was that good kind of hurt.  The kind of hurt that comes from chewing on really big topics with really smart people as you try to solve really meaty problems.  But it’s on days like these that I am reminded that I am a ssssllllooowww processor, that I need time to continue to chew and contemplate before I can give you my full opinion or take on the issue, before I can commit to what my part will be in addressing the issue.  And when you’re in a room full of quick-thinking, fast-moving people, that can make you feel like you’re being left WAY behind!  Oh well, somehow I feel better since I know this about myself, and I am also glad to know that that kind of thinking is valued by the group of people I was working with, too.  So now is when I can sit down to think.  To make plans.  To decide on what I’m willing to commit to for this upcoming year.  To figure out how I can be a contributing member of the AMAZING community of learners that I teach with.  Wish me luck, friends! I’ll get there eventually! 🙂
