If you make it a habit not to blame others, you will feel the growth of the ability to love in your soul, and you will see the growth of goodness in your life. Leo Tolstoy
It’s a beautiful day here.
After Thursday afternoon’s after school program, I had concerns. Yesterday I wrote a reflection about the experience and it became clearer to me what I could do next. I took those concerns to a person who could help. I had the words! Words that didn’t blame or whine or offer excuses. I spoke. She listened. She spoke. I listened. And together we crafted concrete actions to address the concerns.
When I saw the Tolstoy quote I thought, “This is what my writing has been teaching me.”
