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”?
