What I’ve learned over the years is that relationships take time and effort in order to culminate into something special and reciprocal. Each and every single day that I step foot into Jarred and Jamie’s home, I strive to bring a better version of myself. I am constantly looking to improve the way I communicate and interact with the individuals so that I can not only provide better care, but also become a better mentor and role model in their lives.
This ongoing journey toward personal betterment has translated very effectively into many other areas of my life. Outside of work, I try to employ the same principles of Gentle Teaching with my family and friends. I have become a more patient, understanding, and empathetic individual. I’ve come to understand that your actions speak louder than your words, meaning that you can claim to be a student of Gentle Teaching but it is ultimately your actions that define you as a person. It’s about voluntarily orienting your life to produce the best version of yourself as humanly possible, and consciously manifesting it in all aspects of your life.
