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! 1 month 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. 2 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… 4 months ago
When I am not patient with myself, I am disappointed. It is unpleasant. I’d like to avoid that.
If I could be calm and focused now, I could see progress toward the goal—enough to not be so anxious and impatient. So, the most important thing is the now, not the future. Hmm, I’ve heard that before. :) 5 months ago
Hmm, my foot is shaking, which probably is letting me know I’m impatient—mostly with myself. I feel there is a lot I “should have” gotten done. That is, I am frustrated because I need the self worth that comes of productivity and recognition. Impatient worries are not helping me focus now, whcih is the only thing that will make me productive. I don’t have to instantly transform into the type of person who is always productive. I just need to get X done and have something to show for my time and get on to more exciting work. Taking X one step at a time will make the end result better. 5 months ago
so, a year and a half later we STILL don’t have the visa. but i’ve been patient enough to have gotten to the point where we have the RECEIPTS for the visa. it’s taken a supreme amount of restraint to not lose my shit. definitely have learned how to practice patience.
nonetheless, i’m still ready to explode- even though they’ve already told us the date that we will receive the physical visas, the government is still harassing us for paperwork we’ve already filed, which stresses me out to no end.
once i have aldy and allen safely inside the apartment with the door locked… once that happens i am ticking this off my list of “things.” at that point practicing patience will go into the “i’m done” pile. 13 months ago
I think this is actually working, if its not i’ve set myself up for a gigantic fall, I can honestly say that prior to any physical action I have never felt like this in a relationship, that is, I have, but I was in a fully commited and physical relationship as opposed to ‘seeing some guy’ although ‘seeing some guy’ for 3 months. He’s O/S at the moment and it sucks. I’m not used to being this girly…fuck shit bollox, I miss him and i’m in this deep… 13 months ago
I’m not a patient person, i’d be lying if i said I was, so, when I started to see a new guy and he suggested ‘taking it slow’ which we all know is usually code for ‘not really interested’ I was stuck, hmmm, take it slow you say? But, thats not fun…
Then I thought, i usually rush in and clearly that doesn’t work of i’d be a married woman by now, and i’m not…hmmmm
I’m taking it at his pace, party because I REALLY like him so i have no choice but also because I am still a bit traditional about who makes the 1st move, and its not me…so i’m definately gettinga good lesson in pateince while actually having a lot of fun, doing super cute stuff you see in movies….lying on the Jetty watching shooting stars, walking on the beach in the rain, my life is a romance novel/chick flick…or fast approaching friends zone….. 14 months ago
I like phrasing this as a practice, rather than having to “be” different than I am!
What’s a good patience practice? How about taking three long breaths before plunging into dinner? 21 months ago
i’ve been remarkably good about consciously working on my patience skillz, mainly because there are a lot of really great things on the work/home/relationship front that i want to keep stable and cultivated. cultivating patience will help me keep what i want. 2 years ago
