Have a Little Patience

Patience is such a hard thing to learn sometimes. We all can lose our patience sometimes. Including myself. I'm not immune to it.

Today, my boyfriend is trying to learn how to use his new phone. He wants to transfer all his contacts, photos and text from his old phone to his new one. He's got texts from his daughter and his wife who passed away that is priceless.

This morning it was telling him he needed a gmail account and a google account. I helped him set up a google and gmail account yet he was getting frustrated as it wasn't registering on his new phone. We went and updated his new phone into his google and hopefully that works.

He didn't know how to get to settings so I helped him with that and helped him get onto my internet and now he's calming down and seems to be feeling better about it. But he was frustrated for a bit and seemed to lose his patience.

It's so important to have patience with anything. The possibilities of anything causing us to lose patience is endless. If you don't possess patience, you need to quickly learn how to have some. It will get you much further in life if you can manage your patience for things.

Just like me this morning as well. I had gone to the post office as I made a sale yesterday with Etsy and discovered it this morning. I had sold a pair of finger-less mitts. I was so excited. I brought my camera as you never know when there is going to be an image to snap.

The Travelled Cup in my town had a fuchsia plant hanging. On the way back from the post office, I stopped to take a few pictures of me by a tall shrub of white flowers. Then closer to my apartment in the park were lilacs in bloom.

I arrived in the back to chat with a neighbor who was waiting for her taxi. After chatting, I went upstairs. I discovered my debit card wasn't in my pocket. Panicking, I went back downstairs and traced my steps and sure enough there it was on the edge of the sidewalk next to where I had been standing. Lucky.

Patience is key to everything sometimes. If you get so bent out of shape, frustrated and on the verge of yelling it's going to do you no good. Stop, think about what you need to do next as there's always a solution to whatever it may be.

Tomorrow always comes so there will be a way to resolve issues. No matter how big or small things always work out somehow. It may not always be what we wanted. It may not come in a way you expected, but there is always change to make something better.

Patience is a virtue. My mom used to say this to me as a young girl and I've always stuck by it. I have a lot of patience sometimes and other times it does wear thin. We're all human and we make mistakes.
