I don’t even have anything to say about patience today. Patience is something that I have no interest in right now. I don’t know how to explain this to you.
So there is day to day patience, right? You know when your kids get on your last nerve, that women on the cell phone cuts you off or being put on hold. We all have to deal with that. What is there to say. It’s just part of life. Look on the bright side of the situation… be grateful that it’s not going to last longer then it does and man up.
I told you I have nothing to say about this topic.
Then there is patience with life events and future. Well you’ve already messed up because you aren’t enjoying the now. So go back and try again. What are you doing right now? Are you enjoying everything you can in that moment? Believe it or not if you try… and I really mean train yourself to look for it. You can find something to be thankful for in every moment of your life. The better you get at that the easier it’s going to be to find patience. Thankfulness is the gateway to seeing the big picture and once you get there… well patience just kind of happens. Your kids throwing a fit. 1). Your kid can throw a fit and isn’t sick 2). You must be doing something right with your parenting because lets face it kids aren’t going to like boundaries 3). You have managed to make it this far into his life without actually losing it on the kid. Lame? Sure. Does it work? Yes. I’m serious it works. All of a sudden if you can just ask yourself what you are thankful for in that moment you will find your zen. So forget counting to 10, try an attitude of gratitude and see what happens. You might be pleasantly surprised and so will the people around you.
This is literally how my brain works and what came out of it when I thought about not having anything to say about patience… just imagine living in my head for a minute, now you can be thankful that your brain is so much less cluttered.
