the politics of life

29 Jun

I’m not sure if it was the super moon or the super egos but the politics at work, on the grad  committee and among the volunteers of a non-profit organization, I have been a long standing volunteer, were overwhelming this week. The end result of hurt feelings, confusion and losing some dedicated volunteers was heart wrenching. 

The parents on the grad committee worked things through, the politics at work will never change and though I do my best to ignore the ego battles and politics, sometimes it is difficult to stay neutral. I have a decision to make…remain with the organization to continue supporting this non-profit with volunteer hours or remove myself. I do not know the whole story though I have heard both sides. I feel decisions were made by the board of directors, and though it was their decision to make, I feel such disappointment over the two volunteers who were “let go”. I cannot imagine the word exchange was enough to lose such valuable members of the group. 

I have two initiatives already started that I will see through to completion, however after that I don’t know what direction I will take.

What would you do?

Words are powerful and can be used to heal or harm. I believe in using my powers for good. Compassion, celebration of Gaia and our shared humanity, random kindness, the wonder of the human spirit, the poetry of empathy, all inspire me daily.
