Making your day longer

Had a long day today, made longer by people who interpret over you when you’re supposed to be the main interpreter. One of them is a control freak so can’t help it, they try to control everything not just your interpretation…

I’m a pretty patient guy. It takes a lot before I have to say something, so when I do, it’s usually pretty bad. I don’t like doing that cos it puts me in a bad light, but to be honest I don’t really care about that either. Haven’t cared about that for a while now and it’s much better.

Anyway, treat it as a reminder why you never interrupt someone interpreting, especially when you have nothing to add (hint hint).

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.
