Patience

Waiting - I've never been very good at it. Today I'm waiting to hear about possibly getting a new home and I have to admit, I have a fluttering, nervous feeling in the pit of my stomach.

When I was a kid (about 100 years ago!), I was very impatient. But, as I've become older and more mature (okay, maybe not more mature), I've tried to work on my relationship with patience - tried to communicate with it, understand it, meet it half way, even romance it. I think it's paid off, because we've called a truce, patience and I. We're much better friends than we used to be.

Are you patient? What are you waiting for?

I am SO not patient. I'm impulsive, I leap into decisions head first, without thinking (much). So waiting is really hard for me!

Good luck with the new home!

I have to WORK to be patient. I'm way more impulsive than patient.

Right now I'm waiting for me to revise a manuscript. I actually get impatient with my own writing.

Go figure.

Oh, I so feel this. I'm not patient at all. I'm working on it. Really really working on it.

I'm waiting to hear back on something exciting. But it's been weeks, and I don't know if I ever will. Maybe one day. In the far distant future.

We are quite possible two of the most IMPATIENT people in the world. I guess we're in the wrong business...good luck with the house!
