Grumpy is not good.

 I live nearby and I walked over to say hello.

Hi everyone,

I was on a very challenging class this morning. Sworn at 5 times by one student, very rude children talking back but always I try and see the children who shine. Very hard at times, especailly when this aftrennon I had a class in the unit that was so well behaved I wanted to give them all a reward of a plant.

There was but one to give away and I chose a child from the morning session, a child who shone brightly despite her quiet manner.

Their teacher had a rant and a rave, she needed to let them know they had been very rude. I was telling her about the Sati Warrior declaration. I may not have shared it before: So here it is. I will share this with the teachers tommorow.

Today I stand as a warrior and I choose to be all I can be.

I stand for excellence in all areas of my life and today is my time to stand for what I believe in.

I look for confidence and approval in my own heart and mind, and what you think of me makes no difference.

I know that it is ultimately how I feel about myself that gives me the experience of my life, and shame, guilt, regret, resentment are the most deadly of all opponents.

The only way they can be defeated is by absolute integrity, or the absence of contradiction between what I know, what I profess, and what I do. I know that when I lie to myself I am severed from my truth, which is my power, and an inharmonious relationship to my truth is deadly.

No one is born a warrior, just like no one is born an average man. We make ourselves that way by the accumulation of steps we take towards one or the other.I know the power of my mind and I begin every journey confident of VICTORY.I am only defeated when I have accepted defeat, and the moment I turn my back on myself and my vision may be the moment I halt just short of my goal, and I will make useless all my previous efforts.

My work is to discover my life path and with all my heart give myself to it, and by honouring this path I will achieve the greatest victory of all, a life of love, a life I love and a life well lived.

Wow that is an awesome declaration! It is too bad that the morning group of kids was so bratty - but it is good that at least the afternoon group was behaving. Hopefully it goes better with the next group you have!
