Baby takes a while to learn a new task. I am there to help her. 4 months ago
Entries from everyone
I want to know things now. I want to have the good habits now. I want the new perspective now.
I acknowledge what I want. It is legitimate to want. And I take a deep breath and make the small necessary steps. 7 months ago
Rushed with the dishes. Broke a favorite mug. Rushed with the clean-up (unable to make eye contact with anyone because it took all my effort to try to be patient with myself.)
Forgiveness would be like a melting ice cube. Aaaahhhhh. 9 months ago
When I was a kid, I liked to see the birds eat the food we put out for them, now I’m bacl ‘home’ I’ve started again, I had to wait until the birds learnt there was food for them, and slowly they are coming to the garden bed in front of the window. I feed them everything I can think of that they might like, mostly scraps of bread, some dry ends of cheese, and I render down any meat fat I cut off what I am cooking for the family.
When the boys aren’t around making noise, I see so much, I even saw 2 wood peckers today, at the same time. A PAIR.
It’s good for my soul, but it is definitely a patience game! 10 months ago
I just read the last entry to this….. I did make a whole host of things, hearts, cranes and a slightly dodgy ninja star and hundreds of puffy stars for the wedding center pieces. For one of our anniversaries I gave him a whole vase of paper cranes (large vase).
Surely this prove I AM capable of practicing patience when I want?
I just don’t like it… 10 months ago
I feel like I’ve put up with my annoying habit for too long. (My face is tense. If I relax, can I let go of this judgment?)
What I need to do seems soooo hard at the moment. Not sure what tools I have left. A nap? Tea? Call home? 15 months ago
The new boy is especially good with origami, he’s a teacher and used it with his students, I don’t have the patience for origami, but for him I’m going to try, I’ll make a whole host of things! 19 months ago
Friend was totally out of it this weekend. She called me for help. Although I started out as all action, I realized that what she needed was listening. I flexed the patience muscle. 20 months ago
I know the more exercise I do the faster I will drop this weight, I know the less I eat the faster I will drop the weight, but I have to remember that niether of thise things are truely sustainable, sure I could go out running twice a day, but really I’m probably better to run once a day and so some Wii games than to run twice a day, I don’t want to end this tired and exhausted every single day. I’m on a ~1300cal a day diet, aiming for 1200, but probably not hitting it, still that’s not a lot of calories for energy purposes and with that I am feeling it a bit. The wall….the my body is eating itself just to be able to breath wall… Hitting it is fine, but crashing into it and burning in a pile of ruble is not. Slow and steady, completely sustainable healthy living, not a rapid loss ‘diet’...

I like running, I really do, I want to be fit, the program says 3 workouts a week, but I want to do more, make it fast, truthfully I can’t I need to let my body recover between runs. I walk the days I don’t run and I have started eating healthily, but it all needs time….I’m so impatient… 22 months ago
