#16- Have Patience

“Patience is not the ability to wait, but the ability to keep a good attitude while waiting.”- Anonymous

Having to wait around for something no matter how small it may be in levels of importance has to be one of the hardest things to do. It could be as simple as waiting in line to use the bathroom or to cross the street and it will literally drive you insane.

I legit get frustrated waiting for the last few seconds of the microwave to finish. Now that could just be my inner tape worm but still what does that say about me? I think it says I am a little selfish honestly.

Selfish in a sense that I want things to happen on my time and not necessarily when they are supposed to. I may think that a few extra seconds doesn’t matter when I am heat up left overs or running on a treadmill but they matter. Having the ability to wait my turn and enjoy the moment leading up to the finale is one that should be treasured.

Today I got the chance to see a few kids graduate from high school and it made me smile. Listening to their speeches, reading their grad caps that showed their schools and thoughts and witnessing the smiles on their parent’s faces was amazing.

Some of these kids has been at the same campus their whole lives and have bee waiting for this day for 12-13 years. To see their excitement about their future plans gets me all types of pumped. It reminds me of the goals I set for myself way back when and how frustrated I get when I see I haven’t met them all. I know I have to be patient and I remind myself everyday that my time is coming and as long as I believe and repeat that I know it will soon come.
