A blog about living an honest life filled with success, happiness, struggle, and most importantly, LOVE!
More than not nowadays, I find myself being extremely impatient with the people that I love the most. I don’t do this out of spite or anger, I just have so much on my plate currently that my patience is run dry by the time I should be giving them some of it. It’s difficult for me because I strive to be a calm, cool, and collected person at all times. Sometimes when life shoves a lot on your plate, you start to slip up more than usual.
Today (8/17/12 – after 2-3 hours of sleep) I’ll be moving into my new townhouse! So the last couple of days I’ve been extremely busy packing and preparing for that. Mix that with trying to say my last goodbyes to all of my friends back home and getting this blog up and running (which at this point feels like a full time job) and I’m just about worn out by noon. Out of the MANY mottos that I live by, one of my favorites is:
“No matter what, NEVER lose your cool” – Wiz Khalifa
I’m not perfect; to be completely honest I’m no where near perfect. I mess up, I make mistakes, I take my anger out on the ones that I love the most. But guess what? WE ALL DO! Sometimes (I know I have to, at least) we just need to separate ourselves from what’s stressing us out so much, step back, take a couple of deep breaths, and dive right back into the real world. Patience is a virtue (so I’ve been told), so why don’t we stop stressing ourselves out, stop losing our cool, and just learn to live with patience in mind?
Was there an instance recently where you found yourself being impatient with a friend or loved one? How did you handle it? Did you flip out and then apologize afterwards, or did you recognize it before it got to that point? I’d love to hear some of your stories! Comment in the pages below or send me an e-mail with your story and I’ll repost it (anonymously of course).
