I have asked the universe and prayed for patience for a very long time. I don’t remember when I started asking for it, but up until recently I’d given up that I ever learn it.

That is, until in NYC, I didn’t stress about being (very) late to our Sunday in the park. Or in Miami, when things didn’t go as planned and I was able to roll with the punches. Or on the flight home, when we had to turn around less than 60 miles from our destination because of storms and I didn’t arrive until over 6 hours later on a typically 45 minute flight.

Okay, well on that last one I finally snapped after we sat on the tarmac for about 45 minutes at our destination and my cell phone battery died. Getting angry at a cell phone seems a little silly now, but hey, I was one very tired and hungry human.

So clearly my patience is still a work in progress, but I realize that I’m capable of having it. I know it will be great to have in my future endeavors!

Do you have a trait that you consider your “work in progress”?

  1. Trait… how about traitsssssss! The one that gets me in trouble though is being punctual, I am constantly late. I think the problem is over booking my time and still trying to do it all.

  2. self-control… any tips?!?!

    Jeanette – I am habitually early because I worry about missing anything! Sometimes I wish I knew how to be late though 🙂
    Becky – If I knew the secret I’d be a completely different person!!
