First Blog Post

Well…I’m now catching up to my kids.  I am on the verge of becoming a “technowizard!”  🙂

So here’s my first attempt at blogging.  Hope I survive!  I guess everyone has things they say on occasion or in certain situations; I call them “isms.”  One “momism” that my kids hear all too often is, “It’s not about the curveballs, it’s about how you hit them.”  Curveballs come in life.  We can’t avoid them.  Success only comes from stepping up to the plate and trying to hit them.  If we fail, although painful, we learn something from it.  If we succeed, we understand with great joy “the thrill of victory.”  But, if we quit, we lose more than had we not tried at all.  Theodore Roosevelt said it best: 

“It’s not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or when the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worth cause; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who at the worst if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.”

And now, I “step up to the plate” to blog.  Oh boy…

Even coming up with a name was hard.  After a while, I thought of personal “isms” or my own logic…on a blog—hence, the idea “beckblogic.”  I am excited to read the class blogs–and especially to learn from you all.  I promise to quote you when I borrow your “isms!”

  1. You’re in cyberspace. I love this. Why didn’t we learn like this earlier. I can’t wait to read your insights on all of our readings. We should be able to generate some great discussion.

  2. Congrats on entering cyberspace… your kids will be amazed!
