For me, the hardest part is getting up and writing, that’s the hard part. I always felt like I could teach someone to direct if I really had to. I feel like it’s a skill that’s passable, but writing… writing is the worst. That’s what I’m doing right now, it’s just the hardest thing that you’ll ever do.
The difference between a good educator and a great educator is that the former figures out how to work within the constraints of traditional policies and accepted assumptions, whereas the latter figures out how to change whatever gets in the way of doing right by kids. ‘But we’ve always…’, ‘But the parents will never…’, ‘But we can’t be the only school in the area to…’ – all such protestations are unpersuasive to great educators. If research and common sense argue for doing things differently, then the question isn’t whether to change course but how to make it happen.
My grandpa didn’t believe in hugging and kissing, or saying I love you. His love had to do with the way he treated you. When he said, We’re going here, we’re going there, he was telling me about life. That was his love for me. My love for him was listening to what he said, keeping out of trouble, doing right, being fair.
There’s only one thing we can be sure of, and that is the love that we have — for our children, for our families, for each other. The warmth of a small child’s embrace — that is true. The memories we have of them, the joy that they bring, the wonder we see through their eyes, that fierce and boundless love we feel for them, a love that takes us out of ourselves, and binds us to something larger — we know that’s what matters. We know we’re always doing right when we’re taking care of them, when we’re teaching them well, when we’re showing acts of kindness. We don’t go wrong when we do that.
Never let failure discourage you. Every time you get to the base of a mountain (literal or metaphorical), you’re presented with a new opportunity to challenge yourself, to push your limits beyond what you thought possible, to learn from climbers on the trail ahead of you, and to take in some amazing views. Your performance on the mountain you climbed last week or last month or last year doesn’t matter – because it’s all about what you are doing right now.
I study her, Patch said. I figure out what she’s thinking and feeling. She’s not going to come right out and tell me, which is why I have to pay attention. Does she turn her body toward mine? Does she hold my eyes, then look away? Does she bite her lip and play with her hair, the way Nora is doing right now? Laughter rose in the room. I dropped my hands to my lap. She’s game, said Patch, bumping my leg again. Of all things, I blushed.
There are no utopia jobs on this earth, .. There’s nobody out there that can say, ‘I’ve got the ideal job and there are no problems.’ If your self worth is based on what other people think of you, you’re in trouble. My self worth is not based on them. My self worth is based on my faith, how I treat others, what I’m doing right for this program and these kids and this coaching staff. Other than that, I understand you’re not going to please everybody.
I was friends with Salvador Dalí until the day he died. Lucky me. I can’t say why. I didn’t live to be noticed, I lived to enjoy the excitement of doing right that day, and I knew I was doing it right when they would have me back. That was the thrill for me. I yearned to be validated because my mother was stern and I never did much right, that’s how I perceived it.
Perhaps preachers today need to think about the assumptions that are common in their congregation – the plausibilities and comforting assurances – which may in themselves have biblical truth, but can easily become insurance policies waved around as immunity from any kind of serious evaluation of how we are living, whether we are truly following the Lord Jesus in the way he walked, whether we are doing righteousness and justice as God commanded.
