Practice Patience

This idea popped into my head a few minutes ago, when I honked at the driver in front of me who hadn’t noticed the light turn green.  I immediately felt guilty; while they might’ve been on their phone, they might just be preoccupied by a bad day, and I would’ve just added to it.  These split-second decisions that we make every day determine the kind of person we present to the world, and I  know I don’t want to be an impatient, angry person.  So much of life is spent thinking that you have to get somewhere better than where you are now, and that you have to get there as fast as you can.  We teach this to kids by making high school all about getting into college, and college all about getting a better job than your classmates, and this then spirals into the workforce, and your family, and your kids, and so on.  So practice patience, practice being in the moment, and practice enjoying the life you have at this very moment, because it changes every single day!

XX, Gabrielle
