10 at Crossroads this morning for some running. I chose the big loop around. The bat flippers including those on the 80/20 plan were already gone so 6 of us set out. As we went around the gate at the college SA decided to practice his JJ5K plan and tried shoving me in the woods. Despite this act of violence I turned the leaf right back over and forgave him. Heading up the tower lane a skunk crossed our path so we slowed the pace to let it get by. All of a sudden SA grabs me and throws me between him and the skunk. Yet again I let it go and turn the leaf back over. This is the nature of our relationship. He constantly does things to try and antagonize me and I just keep turning the leaf, he flips, right back over. As we discussed at Q-Source this morning the best way to influence someone is by word and deed. I hope that someday my deeds will ignite a palpable desire for change in him. I recognize he has to want it and I can’t make him change but I can influence him.
