Last night we completed our Ethics class.  It’s one of the most demanding parts of our grad program.  And the relief and satisfaction I’m feeling today is a pleasure to experience.

With each new portion of my journey through life there are times of peace and stability, and times of challenge and uncertainty.  It’s up to me to decide how to show up for both.  In ethics we had to work in groups as we so often do for this program.  The difference with this one was that we had one individual dealing with some real challenges in their own life, which was spilling into our group dynamics.  It wasn’t comfortable or easy at times to be in the presence of this person.  However, the 12 Step programs have taught me that I don’t have to let others affect me.

That means my choices include focusing on the solutions, setting boundaries, looking for opportunities to be of service and avoiding joining into any dysfunction that may be operating in the midst of things.  And then, we can move on.  In the situation with our project group, we made it through.  No one wishes the person who brought so much turmoil to the process any ill will.  We did our best to stay on our respective sides of the street and do the work we were responsible for doing.  Our project turned out to be a great success and we will see good grades for our efforts.  And today, we are all feeling a great sense of relief that it’s over.  So relieved!
