365 Days, Day 10

“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” [Maya Angelou]

My philosophy in life is to: be kind, to do what I do in life with love. What goes round comes round: karma.
Every morning when I go have to go and 'teach', I take a deep breath and think: do this with love. I am respectful, polite and friendly to the students. It really amazes me that this does not work on many of the students: I feel quite 'abused' by the end of the day. The lack of respect many of the students have for adults, and lack of self-respect AND lack of work ethic makes me deeply sad...
I don't feel like I am making a "difference" in their lives... Very sad.
I shall carry on regardless with my cheery outlook and journey along my life-path, weathering the humpy-rumpy parts of the road and the smooth parts.
And come out stronger at the end... at the 'end' of this life??
