impatience and getting past itPosted: June 29, 2011 Filed under: Random thoughts 1 Comment
Back in the mid-1980's, when I was at the Unity church in Palo Alto the minister spoke about having a good friend who kept him focused. He tells the story about sitting in the car with him trying to get out of the parking lot at a restaurant, and his getting more and more impatient with the traffic. His friend said, "I've never seen two skeletons sitting in a car in a restaurant parking lot before."
I relate. Totally.
My thing is lines at the store. Any store, be it grocery or otherwise. Being able to surf my Android phone has helped a lot, but I can still get annoyed when someone or something holds up the line. Thing is, I always get through the line. I'm sitting here at home writing this blog entry. I'm not still in line at the store.
That perspective helps.
Ground, center and breathe. I like your friend’s perspective too. Time and situations do move on.
