“I would like my life to be a statement of love and compassion–and where it isn’t, that’s where my work lies.” ~ Ram Dass
We did an exercise at our last staff meeting prior to summer break yesterday of writing each of our colleagues three affirmations. Even though it was not a new team building exercise it was nonetheless a good one for me personally. I learned a few things about how people perceive me, some enlightening, some obvious.
I have been thinking lately about where I need to do my work, the work to improve myself. It is easy to get caught up in the accolades but at this stage of my life, I am also very interested in what else I must do to become more loving and more compassionate.
What is it that you need to be working on?
