My Attempts at Amity8
Another Friday come and gone, and another week where I pretty much failed my Divergent Challenge!!
Amity is all about friendship, mentoring, being kind and loving. And of all weeks, I desperately wanted to be this. I’m leaving on Sunday for NY, so I wanted to spend all sorts of time with the kids. Of course that didn’t happen. I was swamped with work, had dozens of errands to run, last-minute doctor appointments, and I ended up yelling at them more than hugging them.
Which made me feel horrible. Like, want to go sit in a corner and sob horrible. So, the only thing I could do (with Amity in the back of my head) was tell them (at every possible opportunity) how much I love them. How much I’ll miss them. How proud I am of the things they do.
And I apologized for my behavior. Because, as a mentor, I want them to know it’s okay to make mistakes. But, you have to own up to it. Take responsibility. Fix it.
So maybe I’m not such a failure after all.
How did you do?
