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 AdamsPatience 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!
