30 Days of Thanks: Patience is Definitely a Virtue (Day 10)

Butterflies, today is the tenth day of my “30 Days of Thanks” mini post series and today I’m extremely thankful for the little amount of patience I have, it definitely comes in handy. I’m going to start by being totally honest and admit to my struggles with patience, I tend to get annoyed/irritated more often than I probably should. For me it’s a daily struggle to be patient; being patient with disrespect/disobedient kids, rude elderly people, and flat out ignorant folks can be very challenging at times. I mean, people can be the absolute worst at times. At home, at work, at the supermarket, and on the highways, having patience is a big part of our day to day lives and it’s definitely vital to you coexisting with others.

On day six I talked about letting go, I think being patient is also part of the letting go process. Have you ever been so frustrated and/or pissed off because someone disrespected you and all you can do is cry to avoid losing your job or going to jail? Let’s just be honest...it happens, but the adult thing to do is to let it go and move on, both figuratively and literally if that’s what it takes to keep your mental in check. I’ve noticed more recently that older people can really be some mean assholes. I don’t know if it’s something that happens to you as you age or if older people just think it’s ok to not filter their mouth because they’re old and they can get away with it, whatever it is it’s not cool and it takes all my might sometimes not to lose it and say something I’ll regret. How do you practice patience?
