Tolle Tuesday...

The more reactive you are, the more entangled you become with form.

This is a big one for me right now. With our principal leaving, I've been getting calls and e-mails about what will happen next, and I don't want to get pulled into the worry and fear. I understand that parents are concerned, but I'm trying to remain calm -- not only on the surface but within, as well.

It'll all work out, and I believe it will work for the best. I'm doing my best not to be reactive but simply to be...how about you? Anything you're attempting not to react to?

(P.S. I'd post a pic, but LJ is acting up...)

This is such a good quote--it's so true! How is it working out so far for you with the principal leaving?

Yesterday I really had to bring this awareness up a lot in dealing with my son. Some days it's just plain hard to do. But for me, really understanding that I can't control a thing helps me to step back, take a breath, and not get caught up in trying to change things...or him, for that matter.

Thanks for the reminder. :)

I've been reminding myself of this every time another parent comes to me or another thing needs to be done. It is what it is (something else Tolle talks about), and freaking out doesn't help. ;)

It's very hard not to react with kiddos. I think I struggle more there than anywhere else. So thank you for that reminder!
