‘Wiriya Chakriyanuyok’ ความเพียร (วิริยะ) &
‘Khanti’ การอดทนอดกลั้น (ขันติ)
Kru Michel is learning to write the Thai alphabet. Try as he might, he could not quite get it right. However, he does not give up; he keeps persevering until he can write it correctly. His commitment and tenacity embodies for us one of this week’s 2 wise habits, Persevering or ‘Wiriya’ (วิริยะ).
To persevere requires ‘Khanti’ (ขันติ), another wise habit which means being patient and tolerant. To help our Kung Fu Chef illustrate this attribute, Kru Michel played the role of a hungry boy who has been waiting for a long time for his father (played expertly by Kru Noy!) to bring him food. In spite of his growling stomach, he waited quietly and patiently for his dinner without complaint.
The Kung Fu Chef is sure that our students will come out with many more ways to practice these 2 good habits this week. He is looking forward to reading their letters and stories next Monday. And of course they can help him enhance the flavour of his very special soup by adding in these tasty new ingredients.
