Be Zen

Today I opted to fight with the students (i.e. impose my will) rather than build community and work WITH them.  Sigh.  I needed to repeat my mantra of be patient, kind and loving.  I don’t know if it would have helped, but I’m pretty sure it wouldn’t have hurt.

Seems both Keb and I were swimming upstream because he was mean to his friend, Zack.  This has me worried because this is the second time in a week.  Maybe it’s due to how hard it is for me to make friends that I fear for Keb.  Of course, I can’t control it.  Which, as we know, is one of my problems.

Tomorrow is a new day.  I can work on it then.
