Just For Today – I Will Be Kind to All Living Things

One of the most challenging aspects of my work supporting children in education can be the adults, the faculty and staff. Children are much easier to be around than a group of adults who bring their own issues and opinions to the table. Some adults are much more professional and evolved than others.

Exhale. I’ve been trying to find a coping mechanism this morning to help me let go of a recent, particularly bad day. Thing is, is that the events of the day will happen again because of certain personalities within the team. Some days I can let it slide, other days it just grates at me like nails down a chalkboard.

I guess the question here is what lesson is life trying to teach me?

I think two:

  1. I have a voice. I can use it to assert myself when something uncomfortable happens. This makes me more uncomfortable because I truly do hate any kind of difficult conversation in the workplace. Depending on the person, the fallout can have more damage than the attempt to heal it.
  2. How important is it? How important is it that I feel I have to be right?

Solution – Look at the source of who is causing me this workplace stress. Observe and look with kind eyes. Kind eyes. Kindness.

Today’s Life Lesson Solution:

Look with kind eyes

If I can’t be right – be kind

Just for today, I will be kind. My lenses will be kind. I will let compassion and patience flow through me.
