Patience is a virtue

June 3, 2007 11:47am CST
One of the values I have learned throughout my life. Most of the time, I'm patient but it it really depends on what I'm going to be patient about. 3 things I can be patient about: 1. When I'm waiting for someone as long as I'm not staring at a blank wall. 2. When I'm waiting in line (as long as no one cuts in...) 3. When I've been put on hold by customer service (thank God for the speaker phone option) 3 things I can't be patient about: 1. When someone's telling me a story over and over again (I can't stand people who tell their story every 3 minutes as if they had temporary amnesia or something) 2. When I'm waiting for the internet to connect (disconnecting during an online transaction) 3. When I haven't heard from my husband 3 to 4 hours after his job shift (he's in night shift so I get worried about him going home so late or too early in the morning) What's your top 3 CAN BE and CANNOT BE Patient things?

Patience is indeed a virtue. I too could be patient up to a certain extent. When I am waiting with someone, I really have to read something or else I will go out of my mind. I am a stickler for punctuality and I hate it when people can't be punctual. I remember what Iyanla Vanzant said the we 'honor our process with patience'. There are things in this life that we just have to let it be and not hurry them up because they are indeed a process and we just have to be patient. Beautiful things happen or are created not just overnight. It took patience and time.
