[Abecedary of Reflection] Zest

Z: Zest

We have finally come to the end… of the alphabet! I know this is not the end of my reflective journey. For anyone who actually read A-Z, thank you! Thank you for sticking with me as I explored the many facets of reflection. Thank you for sharing your thoughts along the way. As I wrap up this abecedary I think about the word zest.

Zest can be defined as hearty enjoyment, gusto, interest, liveliness, or energy, according to dictionary.com.

I have a zest for:

  • learning
  • leading
  • coaching
  • reading
  • writing
  • reflecting
  • social justice

My zest for writing led me to travel through this journey, which I captured in the infographic below. My zest for learning helped me figure out how to create an infographic!

I know that reading the work of others, and collaborating with smart people, also fills me with energy. As I continue to reflect through blogging, tweeting, and connecting with fellow educators, I hope to contribute to the learning community in some small way.

Reflective questions to consider:

  • What do you have a zest for?
  • What brings you joy and energy?
  • Have you ever created your own infographic?
