“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?



About sstyves

A Canadian prairie girl rooted in Ignatian spirituality, I seek God in all things. Whether I catch a glimpse of the Divine and delight in its presence in nature or in the beauty of an encounter with someone, I am ever so grateful that I can recognize the Creator. I greet each new day with hope and happiness, expecting blessings and miracles because I am created to praise, love and serve God. This blog is one way of realizing that through my writings, prayers, and photography. To God be the Glory!
