…take a deep breath. This is your chance to get better at it. Of course you think you can’t do much more. But that’s the point. At that moment you can dig somewhere deep inside yourself and find a teeny bit of something you never knew you had. An extra dose of tolerance.
I’m trying it. Right now. I don’t have to describe exactly what is going on in this room at the moment but suffice it to say that I’m finding it. That extra dose of patience. And I’ll become even more patient.
This too shall pass.
There. You can do it. You’ll get there.
It takes work but it will be worth it.
I’d rather be a patient, calm, relaxed mother than one who screams and yells when my patience wears thin. I’d rather learn how to stretch another centimeter so my rubber band doesn’t break when pulled.
I’m doing it. Starting now. And I’m getting there.
Wanna give it a try next time your patience starts wearing thin?
Written while I was in the moment...
