Makes sense.... right?!!
Wanna know my biggest one?!
I don't have a problem admitting it.....
(shhhhhhhh - don't tell anyone!)
I have none. With anything...
myself.... my child sometimes.... life... whatever it may be?!
I'm a child of instant gratification.
I'm an impulse shopper... I'm an impulse vacationer.... I'm an impulse skydiver!!!
((PS - I just like to refer to it as SPONTANEOUS!!!)
OK - so I know this.
I have admitted it time and time again.
My question is - HOW do you get past that?
Is there somewhere I can go to BUY some patience??!!!
Cause I need plenty.
If admitting it is the first step - whats the next step??
Someone told me to pray for patience one time. BUT I remember distinctly a woman I went to church with saying DO NOT PRAY FOR PATIENCE, because God will give you trial after trial after trial until you LEARN patience!!!
I've had my share of trials...... I have!!
And It's not that there is anything wrong.
Life is good.
But I was reminded again today that I have no patience. Just for example, I have been "lifestyle (diet) changed" for 3 whole days now.... THREE
And I got on the scale today.
Wanna know what it said.....
It taunted me with ONE FREAKING POUND.
Now granted I just changed my diet 3 days ago, but I started exercising last week.
Can I see a little fruit of my labor (passing up all those blizzards and chik-fil-a and mexican and well... just eating out!)?!! LOL
I'm really ok. Most days I'm fine. Most days I don't think about it...
but then I drive past that yellow convertible camaro and I want it now!!!!! (dont' get me wrong, I know I have other things to take care of first, but it aggravates me nonetheless that I can't just go to the dealership TODAY and have it in my driveway tonight.)
If you know where I can get some, let me know :)
(my "swole" coach would appreciate it too! ha! I'm already on his nerves with "what results? I see NO results?" )
PS - I'm SURE there are many other character flaws I possess, but THAT one is my vice... my Achilles heel... the one I can't seem to conquer.
