One Little Word... The Word that Chose Me.

To say that the word PATIENCE was all my choice would be a falsehood. While I know that I'm not going to be blogging about how patient I am becoming, or scrapbook on how much more amazing I am... I know that this is something I need to work on. I've actually had this carved rock since about 1999-2000. I guess my younger self knew something then too.

PATIENCE to me means quite a few different things...
  • more prepared
  • more forgiving
  • more loving
  • more kind
  • more thoughtful
  • follow-through more
  • more complimentary
  • more purposeful
  • more family focused
  • more focused
  • more in-the-moment
  • more present
This is hard for me. To admit this, even harder. I'm a present shaker, a texter, I tap my steering wheel to wish the light would change because I am running late, I'm all about the quick-fix, or looking far into the future, without really enjoying the present.

I plan to be more. Especially PATIENT. I do not want to regret not living my life, while waiting for it to move on towards the next step. With an amazing husband, two wonderfully loving little girls, an adorable dog, and fabulous family and friends... They deserve my best.

And if I falter... I will even be PATIENT with myself :)
