I arrived around 4:40am to set up the stations in the pavilion and the cones in the lot.  Then, I ran a mile to warmup.  Thanks to Bunny Hill for having my 6 as Site Q and for everyone that came out for my 30th Q on this humid Monday morning.  Welcome to Burnt Tips who was a FNG that Storm Chaser brought out.

Circle of Trust (CoT)

For the COT, I wanted start with a quote. “Empathy is seeing with the eyes of another, listening with the ears of another, and feeling with the heart of another.” I want to talk about an area where I keep striving to improve.  Being more empathetic of other people that I interact with such as my M, 2.0’s, and friends. Stepping back and trying to see a situation from their point of view and where they are coming from helps to limit misinterpreting their actions or words.  Remember the old saying that in order to understand someone, you need to walk around in their shoes.  This is talking about trying to see the situation from their point of view and what or how they might be feeling that day.  They may say some hurtful things but instead of taking it at face value, you try to see what they might be going through that day such a really stressful home or work situation.  If you can understand their feeling and relate to it, you can become closer to the other person through that shared feeling or experience. Maybe the M gets upset and says something to you after the kids left a bunch of stuff around the house like “I’m the only one that ever does anything here, no one helps out here ever”.  At surface value, you might be thinking I just got home from work and do a bunch of stuff around the house.  You may become upset but if you can take a step back and try and “walk around in her shoes” and be empathic, you might discover that earlier she had asked the kids multiple times to pick up their room or set the table for dinner and they ignored her and continued to play on their tablets.  You could relate to the level of frustration that she must be feeling having experienced a similar feeling before in that type of situation.  But since you took the time to try and empathize with her, you can see where her statement was coming from and you didn’t take it personally and say something negative back like, “I do a lot around here and just got home after a long day at work.  What’s your problem?” I challenge you to try and take a step back the next time you find yourself in a situation when someone says or does something not too positive to you. Understanding where they are coming from helps so maybe you don’t take it the wrong way and become upset.  It may help them feel better to because someone understands their feeling. Aye?

I would change it up by adding a brief 15-20 second count of rest after the first cycle through just to give a chance to catch their breath and it would help with a stronger finish.   Ended with Prayer
