 Ah Those Tricky Virtues!
Learn the art of patience. Apply discipline to your thoughts when they become anxious over the outcome of a goal. Impatience breeds anxiety, fear, discouragement and failure. Patience creates confidence, decisiveness, and a rational outlook, which eventually leads to success. ~ Brian Adams
Patience is one of those pesky little virtues that life constantly puts to the test. And sometimes dear readers, I pass with flying colors. And other times, well, Not So Much!

These week has been a true test of patience on many levels. My PC which is my pretty much lifeline is acting completely wonky, but it's only a few months old! It was purchased mid 2010 and has not even made a full year. It was purchased to replace a dying laptop from the same manufacturer. I guess in this instance brand loyalty, did NOT serve me well. At one point it wouldn't even power on, and I really thought I'd lost a year's worth of music and pictures not to mention my blog back up files.....I haven't been able to process entries or respond to emails in the timely manner I am used to handling things. This week has not made for a happy camper!

This week has also shown me I have a TON more to learn about Patience. Like most I am super glad 2010 is behind me, but I don't want 2011 to be a repeat in any way and to do so, I need to learn to better master the art of patience!

Today's Challenge: So How do you Keep your Cool, when it's hot as Hades in your Life?

The heat is on, certainly not literally we have back to back snow storms in the City that never sleeps, but figuratively speaking it's getting HOT in here! This week deep breathing, affirmations, every positive tool in my arsenal flew out the window. Leaving me quite confused! That's why I'm happy I came across this quote, it served as an instant reminder that my impatience and frustration with the challenges and obstacles I've faced this week, are only putting me in a 'negative catch 22' the more impatient I was about the work piling up that I could not conquer because my PC was down, kept me from doing things that I very well COULD have accomplished. Impatience actually zapped my productivity! Not fun, but lesson certainly learned, and now shared with you!

Today's Words of Inspiration'

Use 'Today's Words of Inspiration' as a breathing meditation to still your mind, quiet your thoughts and bring in positive energy. As you inhale bring in only positive energy by saying in your mind, I breathe in positive energy (or you can say creative energy if that is what you wish to create more of) and as you exhale, Affirm out loud 'I am patient, with myself and others and maintain my equilibrium in all situations.'

Spend some time each day enjoying focused breathing AND soul guided meditative visualization, in doing so, you can bring about profound and powerful changes in your life.

Visualize yourself manifesting something unique, guided by universal forces that emerge spontaneously from within your soul. Do this at least twice today and see how by taking a moment away from the hectic pace and breathing in positive energy and affirming what you wish to create, your thinking will become different.

Remember, attitude really does determine altitude.
